Clindamycin Hydrochloride Uses for Bacterial Vaginosis

Treatment of bacterial vaginosis (formerly called Haemophilus vaginitis, Gardnerella vaginitis, nonspecific vaginitis, Corynebacterium vaginitis, or anaerobic vaginosis) in

pregnant or nonpregnant women.

CDC recommends treatment of bacterial vaginosis in all symptomatic women (including pregnant women). In addition, asymptomatic pregnant women at high risk for complications of

pregnancy should be screened (preferably at the first prenatal visit) and treatment initiated if needed.

Treatment recommendations for bacterial vaginosis in HIV-infected women are the same as those for women without HIV infection.

Regimens of choice in nonpregnant women are a 7-day regimen of oral metronidazole; a 5-day regimen of intravaginal metronidazole gel; or a 7-day regimen of intravaginal

clindamycin cream;124 128 alternative regimens are a 7-day regimen of oral clindamycin or 3-day regimen of intravaginal clindamycin suppositories. The preferred regimens for

pregnant women are a 7-day regimen of oral metronidazole or a 7-day regimen of oral clindamycin.

Regardless of regimen used, relapse or recurrence is common; an alternative regimen (e.g., oral therapy when topical was used initially) may be used in such situations.

Routine treatment of asymptomatic male sexual contacts of women who have relapsing or recurrent bacterial vaginosis not recommended.
