The strengths of NeuEve products for clearing BV bacteria are:
BV Finisher > BV Clear > Gold > Silver > Silk > Balm.
Thus, for clearing BV, BV Clear is better than Gold. A trade-off is that it is a stronger formula and may cause irritation if used upfront. If you are over 50, you may be sensitive to a strong product due to vaginal atrophy. Or if you are younger but you are on birth control, IUD, or breastfeeding, or have hysterectomy's or cancer therapy, you may be sensitive to BV Clear.
You may start with a milder formula like Silver or Gold and move up the level stepwise to gain tolerance to a stronger product.
The strengths of NeuEve products for reversal of vaginal atrophy are Gold > Silver > Silk > Balm. BV Finisher and BV Clear only clear bad bacteria. They have limited or no effect in reversing vaginal atrophy.
Thus, if you have vaginal atrophy due to menopause, birth control, IUD, or breastfeeding, Gold is the best for maintenance to stop BV from coming back after BV is cleared,
NeuEve Gold provides nutrients that not only nourish the atrophied tissue but also selectively feed good bacteria. If you use NeuEve Gold for maintenance, it will assure that only good bacteria, not bad bacteria will grow back. When friendly lactobacillus bacteria come back, you will regain health and your BV will be gone without coming back.
