There are a few things to keep in mind whether you visit your doctor or not, and if he diagnoses your problem as Bacterial Vaginosis.
Number 1, it’s possible for Bacterial vaginosis symptoms to go away on their own. This sometimes happens if the vaginal lactobacilli organisms increase to their normal levels and other bacteria levels drop.
2, Antibiotics, both oral and vaginal, can kill the bacteria which cause the bacterial vaginosis symptoms but sometimes this doesn’t reverse the cause, therefore symptoms will recur in about 1 out of 3 of women after antibiotic treatment. In addition, if a Candida overgrowth is your problem, the antibiotics will likely make the infestation worse.
With these facts in mind, you may even want to wait and see if the Candida treatment will help the situation. It’s completely up to you.
