How to stop BV from coming back?

Once your BV clears, the job is only half done. The other half is maintenance. There is up to an 80% chance that BV may recur after clearance. Recurrence is one of the most common and challenging issues in women's health. NeuEve is the only product that can be used for maintenance to prevent BV from returning. However, there is a difference in women before and after menopause. Before menopause, BV is just BV, but after menopause, it often coexists with atrophic vaginitis, which also needs to be managed.

If you are premenopausal (or under 45), you can use BV Clear for maintenance. Use one suppository per week, skipping the menstrual week, even if you do not have BV symptoms. One pack of 3 suppositories is sufficient for one month of maintenance. You can subscribe to receive it monthly. If you are premenopausal or younger than 45 but have been on birth control pills, patches, an IUD, or breastfeeding, you may have mild vaginal atrophy. In this case, use NeuEve Gold for maintenance, with one suppository per week. We suggest continuing the maintenance for 3 months. If BV does not return within 3 months, you may be BV-free for a long time.

If you are postmenopausal, use NeuEve Gold (age <50), Silver (age 50-55), or Silk (age >55) for maintenance. Use one suppository per week (Gold), every 5 days (Silver), or every 4 days (Silk). If you have severe vaginal atrophy with symptoms like painful sex, continue using NeuEve for as long as you are sexually active to prevent vaginal atrophy and BV.

While you are on maintenance, you can add probiotic supplement to help restore a healthy vaginal microbiome with protective Lactobacillus bacteria. This article provides details: To clear BV, when should I take probiotics to be most beneficial?
