Fleurstat

Bacterial vaginosis is an infection caused by an imbalance of bacteria in the vagina

How do you get BV?

When healthy, the environment and bacteria inside the vagina are in balance. Naturally occurring ‘good’ bacteria, or lactobacilli, are dominant and the vaginal environment is slightly acidic thanks to lactic acid produced by the bacteria.
However, in BV, the balance is altered and the good bacteria in the vagina are reduced in number, vaginal pH becomes raised, and the ‘bad’ (BV-causing) bacteria dominate.
The ‘bad’ bacteria are able to grow by attaching to the vaginal lining and forming a ‘biofilm’ that helps sustain them and protect them as they grow and reproduce.

How does Fleurstat treat BV?

Fleurstat works to treat BV by disrupting the attachment of BV-causing bacteria to the vaginal lining.  Fleurstat is not an antibiotic, and is not absorbed into the body.
