4 million women are treated for BV each year1 It’s estimated that only 50% of BV patients complete 5- to 7-day treatments2,3*

According to a national survey of HCPs who treat BV, reasons for patient nonadherence include4†:

56% patients forget to take treatment and 54% patients wanted to drink alcohol

Studies reveal that the longer and more complex a drug regimen is, the more it may lead to poor adherence and treatment failure2,5

BV treatments commonly require6-9:

  • Abstinence from drinking alcohol
  • 7 days of multiple pills
  • Messy creams and applicators
  • Using a back-up form of birth control

In a qualitative study, a majority of women said they felt frustrated and dissatisfied with current treatment regimens10

  • 91% of women would be open to trying new treatment options for their BV.11
