How can Anytime Pharmacy help me?

We provide this regulated, specialist service only for women who have been diagnosed with BV (bacterial vaginosis) or women who recognise the symptoms of BV after having had a previous episode in the past. If you are in any doubt have a postal test before requesting treatment, BV is mostly caused by the Gardneralla bacterium.

All services provided by Anytime Pharmacy are confidential (we do not inform your GP) and allow you to get tested and treated within the privacy of your home and without the potential embarrassment of a face-to-face doctor consultation or the inconvenience of lengthy waiting rooms.

Choose same day click and collect from your local participating pharmacy. The benefit of collecting from your local pharmacy is that you can go to the pharmacy at a time that suits you, it's faster than a mail order delivery and no-one has to wait at home to sign for your medicine.

How does the Anytime Pharmacy service work?

Step 1: Register online and complete the free online medical questionnaire consultation. A GMC-registered doctor will review your questionnaire and, if it is safe to do so, approve you for treatment. You do not pay for your doctor consultation.

Step 2: If you are approved for treatment you will be sent a text message asking you to log back into your secure patient record. You can pay for your BV treatment using a debit or credit card.

Step 3: You will be sent a FREE SMS (text message) when a doctor has sent your prescription to your nominated pharmacy. We advise you to call your nominated pharmacy to check your prescription is ready, then collect your medicine.

Why are no prices shown for Anytime Pharmacy treatment services?

Under current UK advertising law we cannot show you prescription-only-medicine (POM) prices prior to a medical consultation with a registered doctor. Once your doctor has approved you for treatment all prices are clearly displayed. Your registration and medical consultation is free and you are under no obligation to purchase any treatment.

All of our prices are fully inclusive, and so for prescription medicines the prices include the cost of the consultation, the issuing of a private prescription, and dispensing of the medicine itself. There are no hidden extras.

What are the potential side-effects (contraindications) of this BV treatment?

All medication and antibiotics can cause side effects. Your BV treatment can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea or an allergic rash. The leaflet accompanying the treatment will list some of the rarer side-effects.

It is important that you do not drink alcohol the day before through to the day after you finish the medication. The one day BV treatment can increase the chances of nausea more than the seven day treatment. BV treatment may also affect the effectiveness of hormonal contraception.

When answering your medical questionnaire for BV treatment it is very important that you answer the questions truthfully to ensure your doctor has a full picture of your medical history before they prescribe you treatment.

How effective is this BV treatment?

Both the one day course and seven day course of treatment for BV are very effective if you follow your doctor's prescribing instructions. The seven day treatment is just cheaper, however BV does have a high recurrence rate.

Who should Not use this particular BV treatment service?

You should not request this treatment service if you are allergic to metronidazole, pregnant, breast-feeding or you suffer from liver or kidney disease. If you fall into one of these categories, please attend your nearest GUM clinic or your GP for a face-to-face consultation.

If you have used a BV treatment service within the last three months you should not order a second course of treatment without first consulting a doctor via your secure online patient medical record.

Looking after your BV treatment:

This treatment is for YOU only. Do not give it to others. It may not suit them.

Keep all medicines out of the reach and sight of children.
