BV IS MORE THAN AN INCONVENIENCE

IT CAN MAKE A BIG IMPACT ON YOUR PATIENTS AND PRACTICE

Over 21 million women in the U.S. are affected by BV annually.1 Yet only 4 million women are treated, despite potential consequences.2 And only 50% of those patients adhere to treatment as prescribed.3

YOU WANT TO HELP, BUT SHE'S NOT TALKING

Studies reveal that when patients feel anxious or self-conscious, it can sometimes influence their perception of the quality of care they received. They may avoid asking for help in the future, or look for self-help and over-the-counter alternatives instead.4 When patients try to achieve optimal vaginal health on their own, it can impact you and your practice.

Learn how BV impacts her—and, potentially, your practice.

TREATING HER BV

BV is no longer considered just a bothersome condition, as vaginal microbiota can play a major role in women's reproductive health. Without proper diagnosis and treatment, BV can lead to potentially serious consequences.5

With better understanding, healthcare providers may be able to better identify vaginal infections, and provide appropriate—and effective—treatment.
