Bacterial vaginosis, or “BV”, is an imbalance of the intimate area, which occurs due to the bacterial flora losing its balance. This can cause problems in terms of itchiness and stinging, but it’s especially the sour smell coming from the intimate are, that many are affected by.
The lack of the good lactic acid bacteria gives good terms for unwanted bacteria to grow in the intimate area, which chemically leads to an unpleasant scent, that can be described as fishy.
Luckily the imbalance usually passes for most people without treatment, but if you want to minimise the symptoms, you can use the intimate products with Tea Tree Oil.
If your bacterial vaginosis doesn’t pass on its own, or if you experience that it returns multiple times, you should contact your doctor to receive treatment. If you are pregnant, you should immediately contact your doctor.
This is how you use the products for daily care
1) Intimate wash with lactic acid
A thorough cleansing routine is important in order to keep the unwanted odour at bay. So make sure you properly cleanse your intimate area daily.
Wash your intimate area with water and apply a small amount of intimate wash, and carefully distribute it around the area. Be especially thorough around the opening of the vagina, where the bacteria often will gather and create an unwanted smell. Once you’re done, you can rinse with lukewarm water, so that no excess product is left on the skin.
2) Femi Daily intimate gel
Use the intimate gel as often as you feel necessary. During some periods you may need to apply the gel up to twice per day, but give it a try and figure out what works the best for you.
Apply an appropriate amount of gel onto your finger and distribute around your intimate area, where you experience irritation, itchiness or other intimate problems. Give the gel a moment to soak until the skin, before getting dressed.
Be aware of the fact, that it’s very normal to experience, that the gel causes a light cooling or burning sensation the first couple of times that you use it. This can be confused with sensitive skin, but the sensation will usually fade away after a few minutes – a sign that the product is working.
3) Intimate deodorant
Intimate deodorant comes in a practical spray-bottle, which you can bring along and use several times during the day if needed. Our Intimate deodorant is like a little helper, who’s always there when you need a hand in camouflaging unwanted smell in the intimate area. The intimate deodorant can be used multiple times per day, depending on what you need.
Lightly shake the bottle before using it and spray directly onto the skin in the intimate area, where the unwanted smell is coming from. Intimate deodorant also has a cooling effect on skin itch and skin irritation. Give the product a moment to absorb into the skin, before you get dressed. Intimate Deo can also be sprayed onto underwear to further prevent unwanted smell.
What are the symptoms for bacterial vaginosis?
You might have heard of the condition, bacterial vaginosis, or “BV” as some people call it.
Bacterial vaginosis occurs, when the good lactic acid bacteria become too few, and there is an overgrowth of the other kinds of bacteria in the intimate area.
Bacterial vaginosis can amongst other things occur, if you have a very active sex life, multiple partners or if you cleanse your vagina too harshly and often, which reduces the amount of lactic acid bacteria, which usually help maintain the balance.
Classic symptoms for bacterial vaginosis include:
- An increase in vaginal discharge, which is white/greyish and can have a foamy consistency.
- An unpleasant fishy smell from the vagina, often more intense after intercourse.
- Skin irritation, itch or soreness in the intimate area.
With the products in the kit, you can reduce the intimate symptoms of the bacterial imbalance, so that you don’t feel held back by the bad smell and discomfort.
The intimate wash is pH-balanced and made for the intimate area, so that it won’t cause further problems. The intimate wash contains the right mix of lactic acid bacteria, which assures a healthy balance in your intimate area.
Femi Daily intimate gel keeps the skin in the intimate area protected from bacteria and bad smell and helps reduce the itch and discomfort that can come with bacterial vaginosis.
The Intimate deodorant removes and prevents unwanted smell from the vagina and intimate area and is both easy and practical to bring along in your purse, so that you can keep the intimate area fresh throughout the day.
Even though most cases of bacterial vaginosis eventually passes without treatment, it’s a good idea to seek guidance and treatment from your doctor if you have doubts about your symptoms, or if you repeatedly experience an unbalance in your intimate zone.
