atripla and Bacterial vaginosis
Jun 9, 2010
Dear Dr. I sent a question a couple of days ago with no response. I would really appreciate receiving your kind response on why I keep getting recurring bacterial vaginosis almost monthly now. I have been on atripla for two years and each time my Dr gives me metranidazole suppositories but it keeps coming back. Could you kindly advise what else i should do? I haven't take anything orally yet.
Response from Dr. Henry
To my knowledge Atripla use doesn't lead to increased risk for bacerial vaginosis which can be a challenge to treat in some patients. Restoring normal vaginal flora with active culture yogurt or other interventions might be discussed with primary care provider or GYN doc. KH
