Medical needs

We all have microorganisms in and on our bodies, it is natural and the microflora is important for our health. The vaginal microflora consists of bacteria that protect the body from infections. In some cases, an imbalance in the bacteria leads to bacterial vaginosis, that affects many aspects of the patient´s life. Bacterial vaginosis is an infection and is usually treated with antibiotics. Antibiotics are effective but thay also remove some of the protective bacteria in the vaginal bacterial flora. Therefore, about 30% of those treated for bacterial vaginosis get the infection back within 3 months and even more within a year. pHyphhas a unique mode of action, which both cures bacterial vaginosis and prevents new infections.

Change for the future

The World Health Organization (WHO) points out antibiotic resistance as one of the greatest threats of our time to global health. It is necessary to change care and treatment to reduce the use of antibiotics. pHyph will be a sustainable treatment alternative with as good effect as antibiotics without giving rise to resistance or antibiotic-related side effects.

5-15% of all women have bacterial vaginosis right now.
Bacterial vaginosis 
Today, bacterial vaginosis is treated with antibiotics - a treatment that cures the infection but risks disrupting the natural bacterial flora and repeating the problems.

pHyph restores the vaginal bacterial flora by lowering the pH to its natural level (pH 4.5). 



A vaginal infection can be painful, cause intense itching, or sometimes be associated with an embarassing foul odour. Genital problems affect many aspects of daily life - especially for patients with recurrent episodes.
