Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) Treatment
Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is a common vaginal infection caused by an imbalance of bacteria in the vagina. It often leads to unpleasant symptoms such as vaginal discharge, itching, and a strong, fishy odor. BV can be a source of discomfort and embarrassment for many women. However, there are effective treatments available to alleviate these symptoms and restore vaginal health.
The primary goal of BV treatment is to restore the natural balance of bacteria in the vagina. This typically involves the use of antibiotics, either in the form of oral medications or vaginal creams and gels. Metronidazole and clindamycin are commonly prescribed antibiotics for BV treatment. In addition to antibiotics, healthcare providers may also recommend probiotics to help replenish beneficial bacteria in the vaginal ecosystem.
