A few thoughts for the reader with bacterial vaginosis that seems to occur once a month, and around the time of her period. Several readers suggest trying colloidal silver as a safe remedy. Another assures her it's not sexually transmitted, and has been advised to take showers rather than baths as the main culprit was water entering the vagina. The health of the intestines affects the health of the vagina, so try separating proteins and starches when eating. Avoid sugar, coffee and tea, and drink plenty of 'feebly mineralised' water such as Penta.
