If you’ve used our Canestest self-test kit or if you’ve been diagnosed by your doctor and you know you have bacterial vaginosis (BV), you can use an internal gel to treat the symptoms of the infection. Some products, such as Canesbalance BV Gel, work by helping to regulate the pH balance of your vagina.
Canesbalance restores the pH level and provides a triple benefit:
- Relieves unpleasant odour and abnormal discharge.
- Restricts the growth of bad bacteria.
- Supports good bacteria to restore the natural environment. It is a 7 day treatment that starts to sooth your symptoms in just 2-3 days. It’s easy to use, providing you with handy and hygienic applicator tubes.
Thrush vs. BV vs. Trichomoniasis
Many women mistake BV for thrush, but the symptoms and causes are different. BV is caused by a bacterial infection whereas thrush is caused by a yeast infection.
Symptoms can also be confused with Trichomoniasis, one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases that occurs as a result of infection with a protozoan parasite called trichomonas vaginalis. Find out more about this condition here.
