Vagina pills can be used to treat certain conditions in women. They come in the form of tablets, suppositories or cream. They are inserted into the vagina and are often used to treat infections or as a contraceptive.
Antibiotics are the most common treatment for bacterial vaginosis (BV). However, they can sometimes be ineffective and may cause some side effects. If BV has returned, your doctor may prescribe metronidazole gel, which you insert into the vagina twice a week for four to six months.
In many cases, yeast infections are caused by an imbalance of bacteria. Yeast overpowers healthy bacteria that normally live in the vagina, leading to symptoms like itchiness and a foul taste. Your doctor might prescribe an antifungal suppository that you use for several weeks, or may recommend an antibiotic-containing suppository, which you can take orally.
A few companies sell vaginal probiotics that claim to help balance your microbial ecosystem and decrease infections such as bacterial vaginosis (BV). They come as capsules, tablets or suppositories that you take orally or insert into your vagina.
Other Dryness and Edema
Some vaginal dryness treatments are hormone-based, such as creams, gels, patches and medicines that increase the amount of oestrogen (the female hormone) in your body. Others are non-hormonal, such as vaginal lubricants and moisturizers that do not contain any hormones or oestrogen.
