Treatments for bacterial vaginosis are 80-85% effective. Six weeks after treatment, half of women complain again of symptoms. Changes in lifestyle can be helpful in reducing the risk of recurrence. These include avoiding perfumed vaginal products, using mild soap (not deodorant or antibacterial) in the vaginal area, avoiding douching, using condoms, wearing thong underwear only occasionally rather than daily, and making sure that if you have any anal sex play, you wash the finger, sex toy, or penis before it goes into your vagina.
