Usually, bacterial vaginosis is treated with a course of antibiotics. Bacterial vaginosis can clear up on its own in some cases. However, all women with symptoms of this condition -- especially pregnant women or those having certain surgical procedures -- should receive treatment to avoid future complications.
Treating Bacterial Vaginosis: An OverviewAlthough bacterial vaginosis (BV) sometimes clears up on its own without treatment, all women with symptoms of bacterial vaginosis should be treated to avoid such complications as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
Although men can carry the disease, male partners generally do not need treatment for bacterial vaginosis. However, bacterial vaginosis may spread between female sex partners.
You can get BV again even after successful treatment.
