Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is a very common condition caused by an imbalance of bacteria in the vagina. Usually BV does not cause itching or soreness, but often leads to vaginal discharge and sometimes a fishy smell after sexual intercourse. However, we have a range of treatment for bacterial vaginosis.
If you have BV, our Online Pharmacy provides an online consultation with our own GMC registered doctor. Please select the medication and complete the online doctor's questionnaire. Your medical history will then be reviewed by our doctor and, if approved, a prescription will be issued for the cost of £25.00. If you already have a private or NHS prescription, you can select the treatment and send your prescription to Oxford Online Pharmacy. Your prescribed medication will be dispensed and sent in discreet packaging to you, when we have received your prescription.

BV is a common condition where there is an imbalance of the bacteria in the vagina. This often results in a vaginal discharge, but no itching or soreness.
The vaginal discharge is usually:-
* A white or grey colour
* Thin & watery
* Smelling of fish, mainly after sexual intercourse
You should contact your doctor if you get an abnormal discharge from your vagina, particularly if you are pregnant.
The vagina contains a mix of many different bacteria and in cases of BV there is an imbalance. BV is not classified as a sexually transmitted disease, but the chances of getting BV increase if you are sexually active. You cannot pass BV on to your male sexual partner, but can to a female sexual partner.
BV is increased by using bubble baths, scented soaps, antiseptic bath liquids and vaginal deodorant. Having an IUD, coil or vaginal douching also increases the risk of developing bacterial vaginosis.
BV is usually successfully treated by prescription only antibiotic medicines, which can be prescribed by Oxford Online Pharmacy. In about half of cases, BV will return usually within three months and you will need to repeat the treatment.
