Even if you are diagnosed with BV or bacterial vaginosis, you can still travel or go on a trip. Just make sure that you have your metronidazole tablets in your travel medicine bag. That way, you can continue your treatment even if you are away from home.
Why metronidazole? This drug is considered as one of the most effective in treating bacterial vaginosis, next to clindamycin. Studies show that clindamycin and metronidazole have similar effects; in fact, 90% of women who took metronidazole claim that they no longer had any symptoms of BV after their treatment. Metronidazole tablets do more than just kill the bacteria or alleviate symptoms. They kill the organism that is causing the bacterial vaginosis to stop the infection from the root, not allowing it to come back after the treatment. For best results, doctors advise patients not to drink alcohol during and after 48 hours upon completing the prescribed metronidazole tablets.
Compared to topical creams and suppositories, metronidazole tablets can treat BV faster. The medication can last as long as seven days depending on the dose and severity of symptoms. You cannot purchase metronidazole tablets unless you have a prescription from a doctor because he or she has to decide what dosage you should take every day.
It could be embarrassing to consult a doctor and purchase metronidazole tablets from pharmacies. Fortunately, there are online doctors and pharmacies that can help you. Instead of a face to face consultation, you can just submit a medical form to their online sites. Registered physicians will assess your condition and provide the right medication for you.
Some online healthcare providers can also prepare your travel medicine bag for you. They pack not only the essential first aid kits but also your specific medications. That way, your travel medicine bag is complete with everything you need. All transactions including consultations and payments are done online. After accomplishing the medical questionnaire, you only have to wait for the diagnosis and the prescriptive medicines to be delivered.
