this is directed at Rabbits07 -- hey I saw your post on Hannah's thread about yeast -- I have been in the identical situation as you and I have done my own research and I am thinking I might have this as well -- I want to run it by my OB when I go in for my annual next month -- my question for you is what was your treatment for the vaginosis? antibiotics? or what? does eating yogurt exacerbate your symptoms? did they culture your va___a? I want to be armed with some info when I go to the OB b/c I feel like I have been misdiagnosed for a long time now.

They have to culture specifically for lactobacillus growth and do a count. I do feel like yogurt increased the symptoms as since I found out I have only eaten yogurt twice (it use to be daily) and this month the symptoms did not start as early as they normally would have. The treatment is very simple....baking soda sitz baths or douches. I chose sitz baths as I don't care for douches. As soon as I started feeling the least little symptom this month (which as I mentioned was later than usual) I started the sitz (2-3x a day) and have been symptom free. It has been wonderful!!!! I hope you find out something. I know I suffered needlessly for a very long time. Like you I finally came across something on the internet and a light went on that this was probably what was wrong with me and sure enough it was.
