What precisely is bacterial vaginosis?
When the normal balance of bacteria in your vagina is disturbed, bacterial vaginosis occurs. Numerous types of bacteria occur naturally in the vagina without causing illness or symptoms. If the number of specific bacteria increases or decreases, this equilibrium is thrown off, which can result in bacterial vaginosis.

BV is not dangerous. In fact, many women experience no symptoms whatsoever. Getting treatment is only necessary if you are experiencing symptoms. In many cases, BV heals on its own as the vagina’s natural balance is restored.

Bacterial vaginosis can cause pregnancy complications. If you are pregnant and experiencing BV symptoms, it is essential that you get tested and treated. Please note that pregnant women are not treated by the My London Pharmacy.

How do you treat bacterial vaginosis?
The treatment for BV is a course of antibiotics. You can choose between pills that must be taken orally or vaginal cream or gel.

Standard treatments for bacterial vaginosis are metronidazole and clindamycin. Both antibiotics eliminate the infection-causing bacteria.

We offer metronidazole in tablet and gel form, as well as clindamycin-containing cream.

Metronidazole tablets

5 tablets of metronidazole 400 mg are taken in a single dose on the same day. They should be ingested whole with water.

Tablets containing 400 mg of metronidazole are taken twice daily for seven days. You may take the tablets before, during, or after a meal, and each tablet should be swallowed with water.

During the course of your treatment with metronidazole, you must refrain from consuming alcoholic beverages.

Metronidazole 0.75 percent gel (Zidoval)

Metronidazole gel is administered through direct vaginal insertion. The gel should be applied every night before bed for a duration of five days. The gel comes with an easy-to-use applicator that facilitates its application.

The use of the gel during your period is not advised.

While receiving treatment for a vaginal infection, sexual activity should be avoided.

2 percent cream of clindamycin (Dalacin)

Clindamycin cream is similar to metronidazole gel in that it is also applied with an applicator to the vagina. Clindamycin is typically prescribed for a seven-day course and must be taken every night before bed.

Contraceptive barrier methods, such as condoms and diaphragms, can be rendered less effective by clindamycin cream.

How can I determine if I have BV?
If you have previously experienced bacterial vaginosis, you are likely familiar with the symptoms.

However, there are a number of conditions that cause symptoms that are very similar. Many sexually transmitted diseases, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia, also result in discharge. Additionally, bacterial vaginosis is commonly confused with thrush (also known as yeast infection).

If you experience discharge and have had unprotected sex with a new partner within the past few months, you should undergo an STI test to ensure that you are not infected with a sexually transmitted infection.

If you experience symptoms such as itching or pain during urination, then your symptoms are not due to bacterial vaginosis. Typically, bacterial vaginosis is not accompanied by itching, pain, or irritation.

If you are uncertain as to the cause of your symptoms, you can visit your doctor for testing. Your GP will collect a sample of the discharge to confirm the diagnosis.

Is vaginitis a sexually transmitted disease?
Bacterial vaginosis is not a sexually transmitted infection, despite sharing symptoms with the most prevalent STIs. If you have had unprotected sex and believe that you have BV, you should get tested for STIs to ensure that you receive the proper treatment.

Even though genital herpes is not a sexually transmitted disease, having sex without a condom and with multiple partners increases your risk of contracting genital herpes. If you experience recurrent bouts of bacterial vaginosis, you may find it beneficial to use a condom during sexual activity.

Which symptoms are characteristic of BV?
The most prevalent signs of bacterial vaginosis are vaginal discharge and a fishy odour. The symptoms vary in severity and can be quite mild. The discharge may be thin and watery, bluish or white, or greyish.

In men, the bacteria that cause BV do not cause any symptoms. Men need not be concerned about BV, even if their partner is infected.
