Bacterial Vaginosis or “BV” is an annoying condition that manifests with several symptoms:

BV can be acute or recurrent and can be very debilitating when it does not respond easily to treatment.

How did I get this?

Things that can lead to the development of BV:

 

“The vagina is a self-cleaning oven.” We often use this analogy to remind people that the vagina has the ability to self-clean and douching or using other products after intercourse or menstrual bleeding IS NOT NECESSARY and can actually cause more problems.
