What is the difference between Zidoval and Metronidazole?

Zidoval is a vaginal cream or gel that is used to treat bacterial vaginosis. Metronidazole is an oral medication that is also used to treat bacterial vaginosis. Both medications are effective in treating the infection, but they are different formulations. 

Zidoval is applied intravaginally, while Metronidazole is taken orally. Zidoval is used for 3 days, while Metronidazole is used for 7 days. 

Zidoval may be more effective in preventing recurrence of bacterial vaginosis, while Metronidazole may be more effective in treating the infection when it is more severe.

What is the best way to use Zidoval?

There are two ways to use Zidoval: as a vaginal cream or as an intravaginal gel. 

For the vaginal cream, apply 5-10 g of cream intravaginally once daily for 3 days. If you are using the intravaginal gel, insert one applicatorful (5 g) intravaginally once daily for 3 days.

Both forms of Zidoval are effective in treating bacterial vaginosis. However, the intravaginal gel may be more effective in preventing recurrence of the infection.

How do I order my medication?

Some products only require an online consultation which approximately takes 1 minute to complete, enabling you to then buy the product. Other products will also require a prescription; in this case, you will need to complete the online consultation, and then one of our partner pharmacy prescribers or doctors will review the online consultation questions and approve the order for delivery if you are eligible to purchase the item.
