Canesbalance® Bacterial Vaginosis Vaginal Gel

Be confident you're choosing the right BV symptoms treatment. Canesbalance® Bacterial Vaginosis Vaginal Gel is a clinically proven formula that combines prebiotics and postbiotics to provide women with relief from the symptoms of bacterial vaginal infections.

It provides immediate odour relief and helps to clear abnormal milky white or grey vaginal discharge and discomfort. The effective treatment has the triple benefit of regulating pH level in the vagina, restricting the growth of bad bacteria and actively supporting the growth of good bacteria.

How do I know it’s BV?

Common symptoms:

  • Fishy or unpleasant odour
  • Watery discharge
  • Greyish-white discharge
  • Worsening of the above after sex or during your period

Everyone is different, so some women who have BV may not suffer from any symptoms. Do remember, BV is not a sexually transmitted infection and it should not usually cause any soreness or itching. 

No stress!

It may feel uncomfortable, but there’s no need to be scared. BV is neither an STI nor is caused by a lack of hygiene.
Being a very common feminine condition, in most cases it can be treated simply and effectively.
