For the purpose of knowing the content, Klovinal pessaries is a combination of clotrimazole, metronidazole (flagyl) and lactobacillus spores used for the treatment of vaginal infections-both fungal and bacteria such as vulvovaginal candidiasis (yeast infection), pelvic inflammatory disease(PID), bacterial vaginosis and trichomoniasis. Klovinal is a pessary that treats the causes of vaginitis and restore the vaginal acidic balance (vaginal ecosystem) or normal flora. It is very useful against recurrent vaginal infections.

When the vagina is associated with itching, redness, and discharge either profuse, coloured, or malodourous- it is a sign of infection.

The metronidazole (flagyl) is an antibiotic effective against bacteria and protozoa. It is bactericidal.It is effective against anaerobic organisms and diseases caused by protozoa such as trichomoniasis. It works by killing the bacteria or protozoan and preventinh their growth.

The clotrimazole is a broad spectrum antifungal effective against diseases caused by fungi such as candidiasis or yeast infection. It works by killing the fungal and preventing its growth.

Other common drugs used to treat vaginal infections like candidiasis, vaginosis and trichomoniasis are mycoten, sabreten, canesten and candid V6. They are not broad spectrum as they contain only clotrimazole meaning these drugs only treat infections caused by fungi. Clotrimazole is not active against infections caused by bacteria or protozoan.
