BASHH | Bacterial vaginosis

20th June 2012 by Louise Hudman

This guideline doesn’t really add anything new. It is very similar to the recent FSRH summary on Vaginal Discharge.

Oral Metronidazole is still the treatment of choice because it is cheap.

The main difference from the recent FSRH guidance is in BV in pregnancy. FSRH advised treating in pregnancy, even if BV is found as an incidental finding (ie the patient is asymptomatic). BASSH only advice treating if the lady is symptomatic, or if the patient is under 20/40 and has other risk factors for pre-term delivery.

"Joining NASGP's Locum Chambers in Essex after CCT has been a fantastic decision for me. The Chambers structure provides support with my locum work as well as a peer support network with regular meetings.

The Chambers support also extends to support with complaints when these occur. This is an amazing benefit that helps to minimise the professional isolation that can come with being a locum.

The Instant Book feature within LocumDeck makes arranging sessions easy. Whilst getting things set up initially does take a bit of work, this eventually pays off and the return on this initial time investment is impressive. New features are always being added based on feedback from members. "
