Medication details


Canesbalance Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) Vaginal Gel is a clinically-proven over-the-counter (OTC) solution for the management and relief of bacterial vaginosis. BV is a common vaginal infection that occurs when the balance of bacteria in the vagina is disrupted, leading to symptoms such as unusual vaginal discharge, odor, and discomfort.

This innovative gel formulation is designed to help restore the natural pH balance of the vagina, which is essential for maintaining vaginal health. Canesbalance BV Vaginal Gel provides effective relief from BV symptoms and supports the restoration of a balanced vaginal environment.


Using Canesbalance BV Vaginal Gel is straightforward and can be done in the privacy of your home. Follow these directions for safe and effective use:
Wash Your Hands: Begin by thoroughly washing your hands with soap and water to ensure cleanliness.
Prepare the Applicator: Remove the pre-filled applicator from the packaging.
Lying Down: Find a comfortable and convenient place to lie down, such as your bed.
Insert the Applicator: Gently insert the pre-filled applicator into the vagina, following the instructions provided on the product packaging. It is recommended to do this just before bedtime for optimal results.
Dispose of Applicator: After use, carefully dispose of the applicator as directed on the packaging. Always follow local waste disposal regulations.
Wash Your Hands Again: After inserting the gel, wash your hands thoroughly.


Canesbalance BV Vaginal Gel contains a unique combination of active ingredients carefully selected to address the underlying causes of bacterial vaginosis and promote a healthy vaginal environment. The active ingredients include:
Lactic Acid: Lactic acid is a naturally occurring compound in the vagina and plays a crucial role in maintaining its acidic pH. This acidity is necessary to keep harmful bacteria in check.
Glycogen: Glycogen serves as a source of nutrition for beneficial lactobacilli bacteria in the vagina. By promoting the growth of these "friendly" bacteria, glycogen helps restore the natural vaginal flora.
These ingredients work synergistically to help rebalance the vaginal microbiome and support the body's natural defense mechanisms against BV.

Side Effects

Canesbalance BV Vaginal Gel is generally well-tolerated, and side effects are rare. However, some individuals may experience mild side effects. These may include:
Mild Vaginal Irritation: In some cases, women may experience mild vaginal irritation or a burning sensation shortly after using the gel. This is usually temporary and subsides on its own.
Allergic Reaction: Although rare, an allergic reaction to one of the ingredients may occur. If you experience symptoms such as itching, swelling, or difficulty breathing, discontinue use immediately and seek medical attention.
It's important to note that these side effects are uncommon, and most women can use Canesbalance BV Vaginal Gel without any adverse reactions. If you have concerns about potential side effects, consult with a healthcare provider before use.


Before using Canesbalance BV Vaginal Gel, consider the following warnings and precautions:
Not for Use during Menstruation: It is generally recommended not to use the gel during menstruation. Wait until your period has ended before using Canesbalance BV Vaginal Gel.
Avoid Sexual Intercourse: Refrain from sexual intercourse while using the gel, as it may interfere with its effectiveness. It is also advisable to avoid using tampons during treatment.
Consult with a Healthcare Provider: If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult with a healthcare provider before using Canesbalance BV Vaginal Gel. While it is generally safe for most women, it's essential to ensure it is suitable for your specific situation, considering factors such as the stage of pregnancy and your overall health.
Keep Out of Reach of Children: Store Canesbalance BV Vaginal Gel out of reach of children. The product is for adult use only.
Discontinue Use if Irritation Persists: If vaginal irritation or discomfort persists or worsens after using Canesbalance BV Vaginal Gel, discontinue use and consult a healthcare provider.
