|LadyBalance is intended for use in treating and preventing the following conditions:
• Bacterial Vaginosis
• Unpleasant Vaginal Odour and Discharge
• Vaginal Dryness and Itching
• Vaginal Irritation and Soreness
Vaginas come in all shapes and sizes and can be affected by all sorts of conditions. Discharge, itching and soreness are common symptoms and can be caused by different conditions.
A healthy vagina is slightly acidic (pH 4.0-4.5) and normally contains many different types of bacteria. Some of these bacteria are considered to be 'friendly' and others are potentially harmful and there is a delicate balance between the two.
It is normal to have a discharge from the vagina this is usually heavier and thicker in the middle of the menstrual cycle, around ovulation and more watery and lighter at other times. A normal discharge is not smelly.
If your discharge changes, for example is a different colour, or if you have itching, soreness or pain which does not go away or gets worse, or if you notice any bleeding, you should go and see your doctor or nurse.
Case Study Charlee:
I'm Charlee, I'm 21 and a very busy mum to Eloise. I'm a self employed Nanny who cares for four adorable boys who keep me very busy.
I first noticed symptoms of BV two years ago and quickly realised how many women suffer in silence. This is why I agreed to share my experience with you all, BV is more common than you think and can be treated very easily.
I'm hoping that by sharing my own story women will become more aware and stop feeling so embarrassed and get treatment available for them.
