What are Balance Activ Pessaries?

Balance Activ Pessaries are a treatment which helps to ease symptoms of Bacterial Vaginosis or BV. These pessaries have been clinically proven to be safe and effective at maintaining the pH of your vagina, which can help to ease irritation caused by BV. If you’re looking for an over the counter remedy for BV, Balance Activ could be the solution you’ve been looking for.


What is bacterial vaginosis (BV)?

Bacterial Vaginosis, which is also known as BV, is a common infection of the vagina. Although many women who have BV don’t have any symptoms at all, there are some common symptoms that you could notice when you have this infection:

  • Greyish-white vaginal discharge
  • Thin and watery discharge
  • A strong fishy smell, particularly after sex
  • Occasional discomfort


How will Balance Activ Pessaries help to ease my BV?

Balance Activ Pessaries contain the ingredient lactic acid, which helps to ease symptoms of BV by helping to restore the natural pH balance of your vagina. They also contain an ingredient called glycogen, which helps to support the growth of lactobacilli, a protective bacterium which helps your body to maintain a healthy balance of vaginal flora.


Can I use these pessaries if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

Balance Activ Pessaries are safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, although you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using any new medication at this time. If you are pregnant and think that you may have a vaginal infection you should speak to your doctor as soon as possible.


Can I use this product if I’m taking any other medication?

If you’re taking other medication, including those you obtained without a prescription, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product. Some products can interact when used together, causing unwanted side effects or making your medication less effective.


Can I use these products if I’m trying to become pregnant?

You should not use these pessaries if you are trying to become pregnant, as they may create an environment which makes it more difficult for sperm to travel through your vagina. However, this product does not contain spermicide and should not be used as a method of contraception.
