Bacterial Vaginosis?! some one please?

i believe i have it but cannot go to a doctor to tell i have all the syptoms does anyone have any home remedies to help me out? i feel kind of stupid but oh well i need to take care of my body

You really have to see the doctor to get a definitive diagnosis. If it is BV, you'll have thin watery discharge that may be yellow/greenish and has a very foul odor to it. On the other hand, a yeast infection typically has a "cottage cheese" like discharge, and redness and itching. If your symptoms seem more like a yeast infection and you really don't want to go to a dr. , you can use an over the counter medicine called Monistat, found at any drug store, just follow the directions. But if you aren't 100% sure what kind of infection you have, PLEASE see your doctor (it could be other kinds of infections too, including some STD's) If you have BV, you have to have a prescription antibiotic to get rid of it. If you can't afford to go to the dr., there are free clinics in many cities, just call the health dept and they can point you in the right direction. Like you said, you need to take care of your body! It's the only one you'll have! Good luck!
you have to go to a doctor. you need antibiotics for it.
Why can you not go to a doctor to get treated? If you do indeed have bacterial vaginosis and it is left untreated, it can cause other problems. If your reason for not being able to go to the doctor have to do with money, you can always go to your local health department and get checked there.
you need to see a gynecologist. so that he/she may prescribe antibiotics and she can diagnose you right. you either have bacterial or yeast infections or other, they all have the same symptoms. to make sure do go to the gyne. self treatment might just hurt you and not treat the real cause of the symptoms.
