I went to the dr. with the same prob for the last 20 yrs. recurrent bacterial vaginosis that for years I have taken all kinds of meds for. and he did a special culture and told me he had identified the bacteria as enterococcus faecalis. Which he said it was a bacteria that is normally found in the gut which has found it's way into my vagina somehow. He also said that there is a treatment for it but it would require me a hospital stay and an IV medication. I want to know if anyone else has heard of this before.
