What is Bacterial Vaginosis?

You can refer to our Bacterial Vaginosis information page but it is essentially a common condition that is caused by an imbalance of bacteria in the vagina. The usual culprit is an anaerobic bacterium known as Gardnerella Vaginalis. The normal vaginal discharge can change and a fishy odour can be emitted. Not all women with bacterial vaginosis are symptomatic. We recommend treatment in all cases however. Male partners do not normally need to be treated but if infections are recurring then we recommend consort treatment.

What are the treatments for BV?

The usual treatment for Bacterial Vaginosis is Metronidazole tablets. Metronidazole is an antibiotic called a nitroimidazole and is used to treat anaerobic bacterial infections or infections caused by protozoa. More information is available on Metronidazole.

Other treatment options include Metronidazole vaginal gel or Clindamycin vaginal cream placed inside the vagina. This can be used if you prefer this type of treatment or if you experience side-effects with Metronidazole tablets.

Please note that you cannot drink alcohol with either Metronidazole or Tinidazole.

Can I get tested for BV?

There is an online STI clinic that offers a specific test for the normal causes of the symptoms of BV. That test can be purchased here:

The test covers Gardnerella, Trichomoniasis and Candida species. Results are usually available within 2 – 3 days of the sample being received.

Are there any side effects to the treatments?

All medications have the potential to produce side effects but these treatments are normally very well tolerated if the instructions are followed. Most patients suffer no side effects whatsoever and the infection clears within 7 days.
