For both treatment of bacterial vaginosis (BV) and prevention of recurrent BV
If you have noticed a ‘fishy odour’ it could be bacterial vaginosis.
Fleurstat BVgel is a clinically proven1 non-antibiotic treatment for bacterial vaginosis. It provides relief from BV symptoms, including unpleasant vaginal odour and discharge, helping to normalise vaginal pH and restore the normal vaginal flora balance.
Fleurstat BVgel also prevents recurrent BV2 by forming a physical barrier that blocks the attachment of BV-causing bacteria to the vaginal lining.
To effectively use Fleurstat BVgel, carefully follow the recommended guidelines and instructions provided in the packaging and product label.
Active ingredient: 1% w/w astodrimer sodium (VivaGel®)
