Can Doxycycline Treat Bacterial Vaginosis?

Gail M., one of my readers, recently asked me whether doxycycline can treat bacterial vaginosis.

Doxycycline is a member of the “tetracycline” antibiotics group and was developed in the 1960s by Pfizer and is currently marketed under a number of different brand names. It’s a once a day “broad spectrum” antibiotic which is used to treat a number of different infections including certain STDs, pelvic inflammatory disease and acne.

However, doxycycline is not prescribed for bacterial vaginosis and, at this point, the only antibiotics that are recommended for BV treatment are metronidazole or clindamycin.

Both of these drugs work well for some women but not for others and prevention of recurrence often depends on adjustments to diet and lifestyle as well as natural bv remedies which all work together to restore healthy vaginal pH levels.

    I have tried doxycycline 3 times already and have had zero success. Ready to tackle my BV naturally and WITHOUT drugs.
