Hi, I have had bacterial vaginosis before, and I think I may have it again. My problem is that I'm going out of the country tomorrow morning, and I am currently in my period. Is they're anything I can do before I go?

I have an online medical record with my usual OB/GYN

Hello and welcome to Justanswer,I shall be consulting you today.

BV is normally treated with antibiotics like metronidazole or clindamycin which are only available on prescription.

Other option for you is Balance activ vaginal gel,It has been shown to be as effective as antibiotics in relieving symptoms of BV. It contains lactic acid and glycogen, working with your body to promote the growth of good bacteria and restore the natural vaginal balance.

You can buy this without prescription.

Do let me know if you have more questions.

Thanks

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
