Bacterial vaginosis is a type of vaginal infection that is caused by the imbalance in the production of good and bad bacteria. It happens when there is an overgrowth of bad bacteria in the region.

Various home remedies can be done to treat bacterial vaginosis. However, their effectivity is not guaranteed. Do note that bacterial vaginosis may not even show symptoms, so recognising it is not always easy. In some cases, the warning signs can be mistaken for STD symptoms.
It is possible for bacterial vaginosis to stop without taking any antibiotics or doing anything. However, that is a risky decision that can lead to serious complications. To be safe, it is best to consult a doctor first and take prescription medications.
If you are embarrassed to visit a doctor because of possible bacterial vaginosis, don't worry. You can instead go to pharmacies for online BV treatment that provide consultations with licensed GPs, who can then decide if you need medication. You can also order your STD Screen Test Kit, which is the same kit used in hospitals.
To accurately assess your current medical condition and provide the right treatment, you'll have to answer a medical questionnaire. It’s that simple. No face to face appointment needed. Since you are putting your reproductive health on the line, it is necessary to choose only a reputable service provider. Make sure that it is CQC registered and partners with a General Pharmaceutical Council regulated pharmacy.
