Did you know that 1 in 2 women with bacterial vaginosis can get it again?
Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is a common vaginal condition among women which often comes back even after antibiotic treatment. Some of the bacteria associated with BV are present on the genitals of male partners of women with BV. We believe that reinfection from sexual partners may be contributing to the high rates of women getting BV again.
IF YOU HAVE BACTERIAL VAGINOSIS AND HAVE A REGULAR
MALE SEXUAL PARTNER WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
"Step Up RCT" is a research study in Victoria and New South Wales that aims to determine the effectiveness of treating the male partners of women with BV to prevent women getting their BV back again.
"Step Up RCT" is being conducted by researchers from Victoria and New South Wales and has been approved by the Alfred Hospital Ethics Committee. You will be reimbursed for the time you spend participating in this study.
