Intravaginal products warn patients not to engage in intercourse during treatment.4-6 In the case of oil-based creams like Clindesse®, the medicine can damage latex contraceptives.4 Oral medications for BV, including Solosec, do not have these same restrictions on sexual intercourse.1-3

What makes Solosec different?


The active ingredient in Solosec belongs to a group of medicines that includes metronidazole and tinidazole.9 This group of medicines is known to work in a way that kills bad bacteria in the vagina without destroying the good bacteria.9

Solosec has a slightly different chemical structure, which gives it characteristics that other antibiotics in its group do not share.9 Because of its potency, a small amount of medication can kill the bacteria that cause BV. That's why it's able to deliver a full course of treatment in just one oral dose.1,9

Solosec is taken mixed with your choice of yogurt, pudding, or applesauce.1 With Solosec, you can treat BV while you enjoy a snack, avoiding the use of gels/creams that you insert in your vagina or multiple days of pills.1,2-6

Unlike some BV medications, Solosec has no restrictions on drinking alcohol.1-3,5,6 Laboratory studies show Solosec does not interact with the enzyme that metabolizes alcohol in your body.1

If you're sexually active, Solosec may be a better fit with your usual method of birth control. Solosec was tested not to interfere with a common birth control pill and has no warnings or restrictions related to sexual intercourse or condom use during treatment.1*

* Combination oral contraceptive ethinyl estradiol plus norethindrone1
