Brief Summary:
From the earlier studies the investigators have treated women with bacterial vaginosis and cronic vulvovaginal candida. The investigators have then treated them with laktobacilli 10 days for 2 month. The investigators will continue to follow them and investigate if treatment with lactobacilli every week for 6 month will increase cure rate.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Bacterial Vaginosis Other: lactobacillus (EcoVag)

Detailed Description:

Clinical diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis using air dried smears combined with Hay/Ison classification. Test of cure every month or every menstrual cycle using self taken smears. The cure will be if the woman are in group 1 according to Hay/Ison classification. This will also allow us to use molecular diagnosis of BV to test cure and compare this with hay/Ison.

Test of cure for candida patiens are no visibel candida on wet smear and free of symtoms of candida.
