Frequently Asked Questions:
What causes bacterial vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis is usually caused by overgrowth of Gardnerella vaginalis—a bacteria that is naturally present in the vagina. Anything that changes the pH of the vagina (for example, douching or using chemicals in your vagina) can cause an overgrowth and a resulting infection. While it is not an STI, having intercourse with multiple partners increases the risk of BV.
What are the symptoms of bacterial vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) often causes genital itching and abnormal vaginal discharge, which may be watery, gray, white, or sometimes greenish and may have a fish-like odor. More than half of all patients initially falsely attribute their symptoms to a yeast infection when it is actually BV.
Should bacterial vaginosis always be treated?
Yes. If left untreated, patients are at higher risk of contracting other STIs (including HIV) and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). It can also lead to complications during pregnancy (e.g., premature birth). A short course of antibiotics will in most cases cure the infection.
How much does it cost to get a prescription for antibiotics?
The consultation is only $75, which includes any prescription for antibiotics (when medically necessary), with no hidden fees. If you have insurance, you can submit the encounter summary to your insurer and most of the time get reimbursed. If you don’t have insurance, let the doctor know and they can provide you with coupons that will save you money at the pharmacy.
How long does it take until I can pick up the prescription from my pharmacy?
The pharmacy will receive the e-prescription almost instantly at the time of the consultation, and depending on the pharmacy, you will be able to pick up your prescription shortly after. On average it takes most pharmacies 30-45 minutes to get your prescription ready for pickup.
What does the process look like to get a prescription for antibiotics through QuickMD?
The process is quick, simple, and 100% private and confidential. It only takes a few minutes for your pharmacy to get the prescription: Start by creating an account, then choose if you want to be called by the doctor or if you prefer a video or chat consultation. You can also choose a time in the future that best fits your schedule (if you choose to be called, no need to log back in online at the time of the appointment). The doctor will ask you a few questions and then send your prescription electronically to your pharmacy of choice. If we cannot help you, your visit is free.
Will this be confidential and private?
Yes. Everything you discuss with the doctor during the consultation will be 100% confidential. Our platform is encrypted and fully HIPAA-compliant, and we will never sell your information to third parties for profit. If you agree to communication by email for additional information, please note that emails are not always secure.
