FAQS about Bacterial Vaginosis treatment
What is Bacterial Vaginosis?
An excess of unfavourable bacteria in the vagina brings on a common vaginal infection called bacterial vaginosis. This condition manifests as symptoms include abnormal vaginal discharge, a fishy scent, and occasionally moderate itchiness or discomfort. Although it is not regarded as an STI, it can raise the possibility of pregnancy difficulties.
What are the causes of bacterial vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis occurs because of an overgrowth of one of several bacteria naturally present in your vagina. Usually, "good" bacteria (lactobacilli) outnumber the "bad" bacteria (anaerobes) in a healthy vagina. But if the number of anaerobes dominates the number of lactobacilli in your vagina, they upset the natural balance of microorganisms in your vagina and cause bacterial vaginosis.
Why is my vagina lip swollen?
There are many reasons why the vaginal area can be swollen like an imbalance of bacteria in your vagina, a yeast infection, an allergy, or any other type of infection. To know the exact cause, please consult with our board-certified doctors and get answers to your medical queries immediately.
How to get rid of BV without antibiotics?
Lifestyle changes like avoiding douching, scented products and practicing good vaginal hygiene (gentle cleansing and wearing breathable underwear) can help maintain vaginal health. It’s advisable to abstain from sexual activity until any infection clears. Bacterial vaginosis can sometimes clear from the above measures without antibiotics.
Why does my BV keep coming back?
Recurrent BV can result from incomplete treatment, a disruption in bacterial balance, or the formation of protective biofilms by BV-causing bacteria.
What is the difference between bacterial vaginosis & yeast infection?
Bacterial vaginosis results from an overgrowth of harmful bacteria or anaerobes which are naturally present in the vagina. It is characterized by a thin vaginal discharge with a fishy odour. An overgrowth of Candida fungus causes a yeast infection. It is characterized by a vaginal discharge that is thick and odourless.
Can men get bacterial vaginosis?
No, men cannot get BV as their genitals do not have a delicate balance of bacteria like that of a vagina.
How to cure BV in one day?
You cannot cure BV in one day. It takes 2-3 days minimum for the infection to subside.
What’s the longest BV can last?
After receiving antibiotic treatment for BV, it typically disappears. But occasionally, it continues or recurs for unknown reasons, frequently within three months. Without treatment, BV can take two weeks or more, and the chances of recurrence are greater.
Can I get antibiotics for BV without seeing a doctor?
The antibiotics are not available over the counter. You can get an online prescription without visiting a doctor in person or clinic via an online telemedicine platform such as Your Doctors Online. After discussing our medical concerns and history, our online doctor can send your prescription to your preferred local pharmacy.
