After several months of trying several antibiotics, different yeast infection creams, coconut oil, and a steroid cream I discovered that my vaginitis was from too much estrogen in my system. After talking to my partner and getting off of birth control the symptoms of vaginal infection went away completely within less than 2 weeks!

I used gentamicin injection, doxycycline, nystatin insertion and oral dose, ofloxacin, Augmentin, metronidazole, ketoconazole tablet and cream for my vaginal infection and it worked well for me.
