Side Effects

Q & A

Bacterial vaginosis is commonly referred to as BV. It is a common condition which can develop whenever there is an overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina that leads to a disruption to the natural balance. Women of any age can get BV, but those experiencing their reproductive years are at higher risk. People typically develop this condition after engaging in sexual intercourse with a new partner. But despite this, it is not classed as a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Women can develop BV without even having sex.

Dalacin cream is a vaginal antibiotic cream used to treat bacterial infections such as bacterial vaginosis. The active ingredient present in this medicine is clindamycin phosphate. This medicine kills the bacteria that cause infection in the body. The cream is applied in the vagina. Do not go for sexual intercourse during the treatment.

Can a male get BV from a sexual partner?

The very term vaginosis’ actually refers to a vaginal abnormality; so no, a male cannot develop bacterial vaginosis. Female sex partners are at increased risk as BV can spread between female partners. Seek treatment immediately if in this scenario.

Is BV a sexually transmitted disease?

NO. The male partners of women who have developed BV will not need to seek treatment. There could, however, be a risk of BV occurring if you get a new sex partner or have multiple sex partners. During sexual encounters, you will be putting yourself at even greater risk if you refrain from using a condom. It’s important to remember that BV will only develop when the balance of bacteria in your vagina becomes disrupted, meaning any woman can become affected, even those who aren’t sexually active.

Can BV go away without the need for treatment?

YES. In fact, it’s very common for BV to pass on its own; the majority of cases are mild, and some people might have even developed it at some point but never realised due to the symptoms being non-existent. If an unpleasant-smelling vaginal discharge happens to develop, you should have it checked and diagnosed right away.

Why do symptoms of BV keep reappearing?

It is a very common issue for BV to occur for absolutely no discernible or particular reason. There are prevention steps you can take to minimise your chances of re-occurrence, but it’s near impossible to prevent it proficiently. According to studies, approximately 10% of all women will experience BV at a point in their lifetimes.
