Once your BV clears, the BV clearing job is completed only by one half. The other half is maintenance. There is an up to 80% chance that BV may recur after clearance. The recurrence of BV is one of the most common and difficult issues affecting women's health. NeuEve is the only product that can be used as maintenance to stop BV from coming back. However, there is a difference in women before and after menopause. Before menopause, BV is just BV, but after menopause, BV often coexists with atrophic vaginitis, which needs to be also managed.
If you are premenopausal (or <45), you can use BV Clear for maintenance. You can use 1 suppository per week, skipping the menstrual week, even if you do not have BV symptoms. One pack of 3 suppositories is good for one month of maintenance. You can subscribe to it and receive it monthly. If you are premenopausal or younger than 45 but you have been on the birth control pill or patch or an IUD, or breastfeeding, you may have mild vaginal atrophy. You can use NeuEve Gold for maintenance. Using one suppository per week. We suggest that you continue the maintenance for 3 months. If you do not see BV coming back for 3 months, you may be BV free for a long time.
If you are postmenopausal, you can use NeuEve Gold (age <50), Silver (age 50-55), or Silk (age >55) for maintenance. You can use 1 suppository per week (Gold), 5 days (Silver), or 4 days (Silk). If your vaginal atrophy is severe with symptoms like painful sex, we suggest that you continue using NeuEve for as long as you are sexually active to stop vaginal atrophy and BV.
