Jovidox Pharmacodynamics
It has antiseptic, disinfectant, antifungal and antiprotozoal action. It blocks amino groups of cellular proteins. It has a wide range of antimicrobial activity.
It is active against bacteria (including Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus), fungi, viruses, protozoa.
The active ingredient of the drug – iodine – is in the form of a complex with polyvinylpyrrolidone (povidon), related to iodophores, which binds iodine. The concentration of active iodine is 0.1-1%.
In contact with skin and mucous membranes, iodine is gradually and slowly released, forms iodamines with bacterial cell proteins, coagulates them and causes the death of microorganisms.
It has a rapid bactericidal effect on Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria (except for M. tuberculosis). It leaves a thin stained layer at the application site, which persists until all iodine is released.

Indications
Acute and chronic inflammatory and infectious vaginal diseases (trichomonas, fungal, viral, nonspecific, mixed infections), bacterial vaginitis.
Prevention of infectious and inflammatory complications before gynecological interventions (artificial termination of pregnancy, installation and removal of the IUD, cervical diathermic coagulation, hysterosalpingography, and others).
If necessary, please consult your doctor before using this medicine.
