Which is a better BV treatment – Vagisil or clindamycin?

Clindamycin. According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), clindamycin is a recommended treatment for bacterial vaginosis [4]. The antibiotic is an effective treatment either inserted into the vagina as a cream for seven days or as an oral medication taken by mouth (300 mg twice daily) for seven days. There is also a one-day vaginal clindamycin cream and three day vaginal ovule available as treatment options.

However, Vagisil is a feminine wash that helps address common symptoms of bacterial vaginosis, such as vaginal odor and discharge [5]. The formula is also designed to restore the levels of natural bacteria found inside the vagina, while also boosting the immune system. Vagisil is not considered an effective method for bacterial vaginosis treatment.
