About Nuvessa

What is Nuvessa?

Nuvessa is a topical gel that is applied directly to the vagina to treat bacterial vaginosis. The active ingredient in Nuvessa is metronidazole, which works by entering bacterial and protozoal cells to prevent the spread of the infection. Use Nuvessa as directed by your doctor to prevent unwanted side effects.

How do I take Nuvessa?

Remove the Nuvessa prefilled applicator from the packet and pull the pink cap off the tip of the applicator. Lie in a comfortable position and insert the prefilled injector into your vagina as far as possible, and then press the plunger to release the gel until it’s completely gone.

What if I forget to take a dose of Nuvessa?

Nuvessa is a single dose medication, so missed doses do not apply. Take Nuvessa exactly as directed by your doctor to achieve the maximum benefits of the medication.

What happens if I overdose on Nuvessa?
