In this review I’ll look at pros and cons of using Multi-gyn Actigel. This gel can be used to treat BV and yeast infection, and it comes in a 50ml tube with an applicator, enough for 25 applications. I’ll analyze the ingredients and user reviews of Milti-Gyn to let you decide if it’s the right product for you. Or perhaps there’s a better alternative? Keep reading to find out all you need to know about Multi-Gyn Actigel.

Ingredients: Galactoarabinan Polyglucoronic Acid Crosspolymer (2QR: Patented bio-active polysaccharides pH 4.1), Xantham Gum, Glycerin, Caprylyl Glyco
Galactoarabinan Polyglucuronic Acid Crosspolymer (2QR): It works by blocking the ability of microorganisms that cause infections from adhering to human tissue and colonizing it. In consequence bacteria and yeast cannot thrive and your vaginal yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis symptoms may ease. You can more information about studies that have been carried out so far here.
Xantham Gum: This natural emulsifier is generally considered safe.
Glycerin: I can’t say I like this ingredient. That glycerin used in vaginal hygiene products can increase the risk of developing yeast infections especially in women most susceptible to these infections. It’s because glycerin is a sugar alcohol and pathogenic yeast that cause infections, feed on sugar. That’s why you should avoid this ingredient if you suffer from recurrent yeast infections.
Caprylyl Glycol: Is may be plant derived or synthetic, it’s used as preservative dues to its microbial properties. This component is considered safe.
If you want to treat a vaginal infection, apply it in the vagina twice a day for 5 consecutive days.
If you want to prevent vaginal infections, insert the gel every 3 days before going to bed, and within 8 hours after unprotected sex or a swimming pool session to restore the correct acidity levels in your vagina.
You can also use Multi-Gyn if you experience vaginal discomfort, such as itching or irritation.
Multi-Gyn can reduce the activity of sperm. So if you’re trying to conceive, don’t use this gel before and after a sexual intercourse.
My favorite product that treats both yeast infection and bacterial vaginosis is BoriCap. It contains 26 boric acid suppositories. Insert one in the morning and one in the afternoon for 7 consecutive days and see your symptoms disappear for good. Most women notice a great improvement just after 24 hours.
The great thing about BoriCap is that they do same day shipment if you order before 2pm. So if you can’t wait for the itching and burning to stop, you can be sure you’ll start your boric acid treatment as soon as possible. If you want to learn more about boric acid suppositories and studies that prove its efficacy, check my article about pros and cons of using boric acid.
If you’ve got a mild BV or yeast infection that’s just starting, Multi-Gyn Actigel may be just enough to contain it. However, if you’re infection is full blown, or you tend to suffer from recurrent infections then I recommend a more effecive remedy: boric acid suppositories. The good thing is that it treats both infections very effectively. So even if you’re not sure if it’s a yeast infection or BV, BoriCap will treat both.
