About the study

We’re investigating a potential new treatment as an alternative to antibiotic treatment for bacterial vaginosis (BV). This study is seeking relatively healthy female participants who currently have BV

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common vaginal infection in women. While most women have heard about thrush, few women have heard about bacterial vaginosis. Up to 50% of cases will show no symptoms and if left untreated, it is associated with an increased risk of acquiring sexually transmitted infections (STI’s).

Up to 50% of women will notice an unpleasant or fishy vaginal odour, itching and / or a vaginal discharge. The remainder of women with BV experience no symptoms.
