At vConfidence, our experienced physicians can help you solve your problem with recurring bacterial vaginosis infections.
What Is Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) and Recurring BV?
Bacterial vaginosis occurs when the pH of the vagina becomes elevated. This sometimes happens when your body is unable to regulate the vagina’s pH levels. As a result, the bacteria that naturally exists in the vagina becomes overgrown, which can cause itching, discharge, and odor. Many women experience BV at some point in their lives, and it often is a recurring problem. Even after treatment, some women find that the infection keeps coming back.
Diagnosing BV, Bacterial Vaginosis, Recurring BV, and Bacterial Infection Symptoms
The most common symptoms of bacterial vaginosis include:
- Burning during urination
- “Fishy” vaginal odor
- Thin, white, or gray vaginal discharge
If you experience these symptoms, it’s likely that you have BV.
How Does vConfidence Treat Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) and Recurring BV?
vConfidence is an authority on vaginal health. We use the latest technology to design non-invasive procedures to treat bacterial vaginosis and other health conditions. At vConfidence, we use radio frequency technology and fractional CO2 laser-based technology to treat patients. Our physicians are specially trained to perform procedures, such as Intima, FemiLift™, FemTouch™, and Viveve™.
An imbalance in pH levels in the vagina is the most common cause of BV. Our treatments use gentle lasers to create micro-wounds, which promotes natural healing in the body. This procedure helps the vagina grow a thicker and revitalized lining, which can eliminate BV, yeast infections, and vaginal dryness. It can also prevent these infections from recurring.
This procedure is very quick, easy, and painless. The treatment only takes about five minutes, and it is completely noninvasive. It initiates a natural healing response in your body. After your body creates a fresh vaginal mucosa, the pH in your vagina will balance out, and the bacteria will return to normal.
