What is Bacterial Vaginosis?

Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is a condition in which women experience a change in their vaginal discharge. This change is due to an overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina. BV is quite common, and it is thought around a third of women will experience it at some point in their lives. At Click2Pharmacy, we have various bacterial vaginosis treatment options to help you successfully treat BV and its symptoms.

Although bacterial vaginosis is not an STI, it can be passed between female sexual partners.

Bacterial Vaginosis Symptoms

The most common symptoms of bacterial vaginosis are:

  • Vaginal discharge that is grey in colour
  • Vaginal discharge that is thin and watery
  • A strong, fishy smell

Around half of women experience no symptoms at all. BV is not harmful, and is NOT a sexually transmitted infection (STI). It is not clear what causes the change in vaginal discharge, but it is thought that being sexually active, having the IUD contraceptive, using strong scented soaps and vaginal products can disrupt the balance of bacteria in the vagina.

How is BV diagnosed?

The symptoms of BV can seem similar to thrush, although in thrush discharge is thick as opposed to thin and watery, and the smell is yeasty and not fishy. If you have never had BV and are unsure of your symptoms, you can see your GP or go to a sexual health clinic. A swab from your vagina can be taken and tested, which can also rule out any STIs.

If you are pregnant, then you should contact your GP or midwife, as there is a small risk that BV can cause complications in pregnancy.

At Click2Pharmacy we now offer self-test kit for bacterial vaginosis, called Canestest.

Canestest Self Test for Bacterial Vaginosis

  • A home swab test kit that works by measuring pH levels in the vagina
  • Can detect thrush and bacterial vaginosis, so you know which one you may have
  • Over 90% accuracy
  • Offers privacy and convenience for those wanting to test at home

Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) Treatment Options

BV is normally treated with antibiotics. In some people, BV can be reoccurring, and this may mean you need treatment for a longer period of time. It is also worth taking steps to prevent bacterial vaginosis, especially if you are more susceptible to it. This can include:

  • Taking showers instead of baths
  • Not using strong scented products around your vagina
  • Using mild detergents to wash your underwear
  • No vaginal douching

At Click2Pharmacy, we offer prescription based treatments for BV and our advanced prescribers can guide you with which medicines may work best for you. So whether this is your first time suffering from bacterial vaginosis, or you have had it before, you can speak to a member of our team at Click2Pharmacy, who can advise you on testing and treatment options.

It is great to have somewhere local that does blood testing. The staff are lovely, helpful and experienced. They fit me in last minute. There is never a wait and the results back within a day or two.
After refusal of doctors appointment same old same old ring back etc. I was invited at 5.25 to see doctor I drove over immediately. Everything fully explained and checked over I was leaving by 6pm with penicillin for strep throat. Had I followed my doctors receptionist I would probably have suffered longer and increased the chances of a worse infection.I Great efficient service.
