Balance Activ BV Vaginal Pessaries 7 pessaries
Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is the most common form of vaginal infection. It is caused by an imbalance in the naturally occurring bacteria within the vagina and leads to a variety of symptoms, including embarrassing odour, abnormal discharge and discomfort.
Balance Activ BV quickly, effectively and safely combats the symptoms and causes of BV thanks to its unique formula of lactic acid and glycogen. These provide the nutrients that encourage the growth of good bacteria, which help to neutralise embarrassing odour, relieve abnormal discharge and alleviate discomfort.
As well as relieving symptoms, Balance Activ BV can also be used to maintain the natural pH balance of the vagina and prevent recurrence in the long term.
Balance Activ BV Pessaries work in the same way as Balance Activ BV Gel but are simply inserted into the vagina like a tampon. These new pessaries are small, discreet, mess-free and ideal for use at bedtime.

Maintenance and Prevention
To maintain the natural pH balance and prevent recurrence of symptoms, use one pessary daily for four to five days. To help maintain the pH level during a course of antibiotics, use one pessary every three days for three months. If you notice a recurrence of symptoms around the time of your period, you should use one pessary at the end of you period for one to two days.
