Natural treatments for Bacterial vaginosis?

I am 4 weeks pregnant and have Bacterial vaginosis.

My doctor prescribed me an antibioti called METRONIDAZOLE.

I stopped taking any medicine at all about 2 years ago.

I only use homeopathic remedies.

I def dont want to take anything while pregnant and in my first trimester but i also dont want to let the infection get any worse as it can cause preterm labor later in my pregnancy.

Please help. Natural remedies? or any other advice? I am a very natural way of living type of girl…………natural birth..no medicine…not even a tylenol
I am also concerned about my breast milk being affected as i am currently breastfeeding my 9 1/2 ,month old
will the meds affect my breastmilk

    Go to a real doctor.

    Homeopathy is WATER. It is a placebo. You are endangering the life and health of your child because you believe in pseudo-science quackery, and the consequences will be entirely your fault.

    You know what else is 100% natural? Cyanide. Tetrodox. Parasites. Flesh-eating bacteria. Mercury. Gamma rays. Dying of old age at 30.

  • I understand wanting a natural birth and pregnancy but you need to clear up the infection to protect your baby. This is a serious problem if not cleared their is a very high chance of miscarriage.

    Metronidazole (Flagyl) is rated by the AAP as a drug whose effect on infants is unknown, but it may be of concern because older studies found its use in pregnancy to be associated with mutagenicity.6 Nevertheless, the amount transferred to the infant through breast milk is much lower than the therapeutic dosage for infants, and no adverse effects have been reported from exposure through breast milk.3 Following a 2-g dose, cessation of breastfeeding for 12 to 24 hours is recommended by the AAP.3,6 Topical preparations of metronidazole (MetroGel-Vaginal) produce very low serum concentrations in the mother and are not a concern.3

  • As you probably know that one can not suggest the homeopathic remedy only on the name of the ailments. Pls revert with more details thru my email and i will he happy to suggest the remedy
