Your BV may be mild, moderate, or severe.
Mild - You never had BV before and have not tried any other treatments. This BV episode is new to you.
Moderate - Your BV is recurrent, and you have tried one other treatment, such as boric acid, tea tree oils, acid gels, or probiotic suppositories.
Severe - Your BV is recurrent, and you have tried multiple other treatments - including antibiotics, douching, and/or those mentioned above.
Note: the word “severity” here does not mean how bad your BV symptoms are. It is the degree of difficulty in clearing them. The easy ones can be cleared by using just one BV care product. If you have tried multiple different products and your BV is still not cleared or keeps coming back, you may have a severe type of BV that is difficult to clear.
