Balance Activ Gel from Clearblue treats & prevents Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)

What is Bacterial Vaginosis I hear you ask

Vaginosis is the medical term used to describe an imbalance in vaginal flora, an overgrowth of unwanted bacteria leads to the imbalance of the normal healthy bacteria. Symptoms can include abnormal discharge, embarrassing odour and discomfort. This condition is known as Bacterial Vaginosis or BV, it is not vaginitis as it does not cause inflammation.

BV is the most common type of vaginal infection in women of childbearing age. Experts estimate that at least 1 in 3 women, and perhaps most women, will develop BV at some point in their life.

balance activ is a vaginal gel that immediately neutralises embarrassing odour and effectively relieves abnormal discharge and discomfort.  These symptoms can occur when the natural balance of the vagina is upset.

It can also be used to maintain the natural balance of the vagina and prevent recurrence of symptoms.

Balance Activ has been launched by Inverness Medical the makers of Clearblue pregnancy and ovulation tests as well as the Clearblue Fertility Monitor

balance activ vaginal gel is a unique product containing both lactic acid, to effectively restore the natural pH of the vagina, and glycogen, to promote the healthy growth of the normal bacteria. With normal pH and nutrients, the protective lactobacilli grow and the natural vaginal balance is restored.

balance activ vaginal gel is easy to use. The gel is contained within a disposable tube; the woman twists off the top, inserts the tube into her vagina, and squeezes out the contents. Then the tube is simply removed and discarded.

It has been tried and clinically tested to be safe and effective. The product has been used to redress vaginal imbalance in Sweden for more than 10 years.

Many women experience recurrent symptoms, for example around the time of menstruation, or when taking antibiotics. balance activ vaginal gel can also be used to maintain the natural pH of the vagina and prevent recurrence of BV.
