Best way to keep this from happening again

I have bacterial vaginosis (not a yeast infection) for the first time in my life. Aren't I lucky. I really never want this to happen again. I have a Diva cup and have rinsed it every time I emptied it and boil it at the end of my cycle. I use cloth Luna pads as a backup and wash them in my machine washer with dye/scent free detergent. Is there anything else I can do to improve my methods so (hopefully) this won't happen again?

Sort of aside: the doctor gave me an anitbiotic, but I am trying to fix it naturally. Any tips on this would also be helpful.
