Sexually Transmitted Infections

I have had BV at least 4-5 times. I was wondering if there are any over-the-counter medications that can be taken since this infection is so common, as opposed to going to the doctor each time? If not, do you think they will ever make this antibiotic over-the-counter to be more convenient for women?
More important to me is how are you getting reinfected? If your partner is not being treated each time, he is reinfecting you - please talk to a doctor about this.
