Canesbalance Bacterial Vaginosis Gel

Canesbalance gel is a treatment for bacterial vaginosis (BV), which occurs when there is an imbalance of bacteria in a woman’s vagina. Canesbalance contains the necessary ingredients to reduce the impact of ‘bad’ bacteria which causes symptoms associated with BV and supports the increase of ‘good’ bacteria. A pack of canesbalance typically contains 7 small tubes of medicinal gel and one of these are applied on a daily basis to cover a full-week treatment course. Patients typically start to notice reduction of symptoms when they are a few days into treatment, but it’s important not to stop early and complete the full course of treatment to ensure the balance of bacteria is properly restored.

What is Canesbalance BV gel treatment?

Canesbalance is a medicinal gel designed to relieve the symptoms of bacterial vaginosis (also known as BV infection). It is able to reduce symptoms caused by the illness in just a few days.

Bacterial vaginosis is an unpleasant condition which can affect women when the balance of natural bacteria inside the vagina goes wrong. This can result in an increase of ‘bad’ bacteria which can cause symptoms such as unpleasant odour and abnormal discharge. Canesbalance gel can help restrict the growth of ‘bad’ bacteria and supports the development of ‘good’ bacteria.

Bacterial vaginosis can occur for multiple possible reasons. Causes can include having prolonged menstruation, the use of intimate hygiene products, frequent vaginal douching, the use of contraceptives, vaginal medications, sexual intercourse and even stress. If you are taking antibiotics or using an Intrauterine Device (IUD), then these can also affect the bacterial balance in the vagina. Whatever it is that causes you to experience bacterial vaginosis, treatment from canesbalance gel should always prove effective in dealing with it. Patients typically use this gel for 7 days in a row and you should begin to see reduction of symptoms after a few days of using the treatment.

How does Canesbalance gel work?

Canesbalance contains lactic acid and glycogen which are effective ingredients for treating bacterial vaginosis.

The lactic acid is used to neutralise the unpleasant odour associated with BV and restores the normal pH (acid-base balance) of the vagina. Glycogen provides nutrients to lactic acid bacteria and supports their growth. Alongside normal pH and nutrients, the growth of the lactic acid bacteria leads to the natural vaginal balance being restored. Abnormal discharge and discomfort is effectively relieved. The ingredients of this medication are put in a gel contained within a tube so that this medication is easy to apply.

Can Canesbalance treat thrush?

Canesbalance cannot be used to treat thrush. Thrush is a yeast (fungal) infection which can affect numerous parts of the body including the vagina. Some people do mistake thrush for bacterial vaginosis (or vice versa) but the two conditions are different and require separate kinds of treatment.

It’s important to correctly identify what type of infection you have in your vagina before picking the right medicine to use. You could consult a doctor or local pharmacist for help with this, or you could identify the condition yourself by looking out for certain symptoms. For instance, bacterial vaginosis usually causes an unpleasant fishy smell, whereas thrush does not cause any unusual smells. Both conditions can cause unusual discharge, but whereas the ones caused by BV are usually thin, watery and possibly greyish, thrush leads to thick, white and curd-like discharges.

Who is suitable to take Canesbalance?

Canesbalance is appropriate for use by women who have been diagnosed by a doctor to currently have bacterial vaginosis. While you don’t need a prescription for this medication, you will need to complete a short consultation to buy this product from online services such as ours. This is so that our qualified doctors can confirm that this treatment is appropriate for you to take. If you are pregnant or menstruating, then you should be OK to use canesbalance to treat BV. It’s always important to tell your doctor if you have a vaginal infection during pregnancy.

How to use Canesbalance

A single pack of canesbalance contains 7 single-use applicators (tubes) for one course of treatment (each applicator has 5ml of the medicinal gel). You should use 1 tube daily for 7 days in total.

To use one of the applicators, you should twist off the end tab and sit or lie in a comfortable position before gently inserting the neck of the applicator into the vagina as far as it will comfortably go. Then gently squeeze the applicator to release its contents. It is best to use this medication at bedtime. It may prove useful to wear a panty liner, since it is common to notice slight leakage (this does not mean the treatment has failed to work).

If you are someone who has frequently experienced recurrent episodes of bacterial vaginosis, then it’s possible to use canesbalance as a preventive measure against the condition. If this is your intention, then you should use 1 applicator/tube daily for 3 days after menstruation.

Can Canesbalance cause side effects?

Canesbalance may cause some stinging as a side effect, but this feeling is only temporary and should ease over time. If you become concerned or experience any other side effects, then contact a doctor for advice as soon as possible.
