A stubborn recurrent BV is difficult to clear but easy to come back.
An antibiotic may clear your infection quickly, but it can wipe out both bad and good bacteria. If overly used, two major side effects of antibiotics are drug resistance in surviving bacteria and yeast infection if all bacteria are wiped out.
Unlike antibiotics, NeuEve uses a natural way to control bacterial infection. This article explains how it works:
NeuEve will not cause drug resistance or yeast infection because it is not an antibiotic. It only clears bad bacteria, not good ones.
After your BV is cleared with antibiotics, it may come back if you do not do a maintenance.
Antibiotics cannot be used for maintenance because you do not use a drug when you do not have an infection.
But NeuEve is different. It is not a drug, nor does it have drug-related side effects. You can use it for maintenance after BV is cleared.
Using BV Clear alone can clear most cases of BV, even stubborn recurrent BV.
For treating BV that is stubborn and recurrent, two products may work better than one.
Since you have already acquired both antibiotics and BV Clear, you may use antibiotics first to clear BV, presumably you have the right BV care antibiotics like metronidazole (or Flagyl).
After your BV is cleared by antibiotics, you may use NeuEve BV Clear for maintenance if you are under 45, premenopausal and are not on birth control, IUD, or breastfeeding or have a disease called Sjogren's syndrome. You can use 1 BV Clear suppository a week, skipping the menstrual period week. One pack of BV Clear may last for a month.
If you are over 45, or you have a health condition like on birth control, IUD, or breastfeeding or Sjogren's syndrome, BV Clear may be too strong for you due to vaginal atrophy. You can use a milder NeuEve formula for health maintenance to stop BV from coming back.
If your age is 45-50, or peri-menopausal, you may use NeuEve Gold.
If you are at early menopausal age or 50-55, you may use NeuEve Silver.
If you are over 55, you may use NeuEve Silk.
If you you have a health condition like on birth control, IUD, breastfeeding, or an autoimmune disease like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or Sjogren's syndrome, or on medications like antidepressants, antihypertensive, or antiallergics, you may use a NeuEve product that is one phase lower than that for your age.
For example, if you are 45-50 but you have a health condition listed above, the right product for you to start is NeuEve Silver. After you are on this phase for 3 months, you may move up a phase to NeuEve Gold.
Since you will use an antibiotic to clear BV, to counteract its side effects, I suggest that you also take some feminine probiotics, which can replenish good bacteria and also avoid yeast infection related to antibiotic use.
We recommend Fem Dophilus pill. This is not our product but you can find it on Amazon.com
