Brief Answer:
You can use it.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for trusting us about your health care.

I can understand your concern here.

Bacterial vaginosis is a vaginal infection caused due to imbalance between normal bacterial flora.

Treatment is only indicated when symptoms are severe enough to cause discomfort otherwise it will resolve by it's own.

You can use clindamycin and nicotinamide gel for local application till the symptoms get resolve.

Maintain vaginal hygiene, never douche,consume healthy and balanced diet to treat bacterial vaginosis.

Hope it is useful, feel free to discuss more.

Thanks again. I am doing this for 1st time and must say helping in this way is a big thing.
Impressed from the service.

Wel I have not yet consulted any doc. Yet.

I have BV in small amount like 4-5 times in day so is it just a start or need myself to get check.

And do this cause any problem in future?
Sorry I am asking so many questions but little worried because of this.

Thank you
