Frequently Asked Questions

Bacterial vaginosis is sometimes misunderstood to be an STI, but it isn’t - it’s caused when the natural balance of bacteria in your vagina shift, causing an overgrowth of yeast.

 

It’s more common in women who are sexually active, have recently changed partners, have an IUD or use perfumed products in or around your vagina.

 

Although BV isn’t an STI, it can be triggered by sex and can be passed to another woman during sex.

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a common vaginal infection amongst women - despite this, many women assume they have thrush because they aren’t aware of the symptoms of bacterial vaginosis.

 

BV may present a thin, watery discharge that has a fishy smell; you may also experience discomfort.

 

Whereas thrush tends to produce thick, white, curd-like discharge that doesn’t have a smell; you may also experience intense itching, burning and redness or irritation around the skin of the vulva.

In order to treat your bacterial vaginosis, you’ll need to restore the acidic balance in the vagina and allow healthy bacteria to flourish.

 

Canesbalance Bacterial Vaginal Gel contains lactic acid and glycogen to relieve the unpleasant odour and abnormal discharge, restricting the growth of ‘bad’ bacteria and supporting the ‘good’ bacteria.

 

The gel is easy to insert using the hygienic single-use applicators and will treat your bacterial vaginosis in 2-3 days.

Bacterial vaginosis occurs when there’s an imbalance of bacteria in the vagina.

 

Taking probiotics - which are packed full of good bacteria - may help to stabilise the levels of bacteria in your vagina, eliminating bacterial vaginosis.

 

There’s still plenty of ongoing research into probiotics, but it’s said that types of Lactobacillus bacteria are found in a healthy vagina.

 

Look out for ingredients like Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus rhamnosus.
