Zidoval Vaginal Gel is a targeted treatment for Bacterial Vaginosis (BV), designed to alleviate the symptoms and address the root cause of the infection.

What Is Bacterial Vaginosis?

Bacterial Vaginosis is a common condition that can cause discomfort and pain for many women. It’s caused by an imbalance in the vagina’s natural bacteria levels. If left untreated, BV can lead to further complications such as Sexually transmitted diseases (STIs)

How Does Zidoval (Metronidazole) Gel Work?

Zidoval Gel contains the active ingredient metronidazole, a powerful antibiotic that directly targets the bacteria causing BV. By applying the gel inside the vagina, it delivers the medication precisely where it is needed, effectively treating the infection and helping to prevent its recurrence.

Who Can Use Zidoval Vaginal Gel?

Zidoval Vaginal Gel is suitable for most women seeking an effective treatment for BV. However, you should not use this gel if you:

  • Are allergic to metronidazole or any of the gel’s ingredients
  • Have a known allergy to similar nitroimidazole antibacterials or parabens.

Additionally, before using this medication, please consult your doctor or a pharmacist if you:

  • Have had blood disorders or diseases affecting the blood.
  • Suspect you may have vaginal thrush
  • Are currently having your period 
  • Are due for any blood tests

How To Use Zidoval Vaginal Gel

The recommended dose is one applicator filled with 5g of Zidoval gel inserted into the vagina once daily at bedtime for five consecutive days. You should continue your treatment for the prescribed duration. To use this gel, follow these instructions carefully:

  1. Before each application, wash your hands thoroughly. Use a fresh applicator for each dose, discarding each after a single use.
  2. Attach a disposable applicator to the tube and fill it by gently squeezing it.
  3. Lie on your back with knees bent, and insert the applicator into your vagina as far as comfortable.
  4. Press the plunger slowly to release the gel, then safely remove and dispose of the applicator.

If you forget a dose, apply it at the next bedtime. Do not double the dose to make up for the missed one.
