So, what is Bacterial Vaginosis?
Bacterial Vaginosis, or BV, is totally natural and very common. In fact, more women in the UK suffer from BV than thrush. They also suffer more often, typically 3-4 times per year. Yet very few people have heard of BV and typically treat symptoms as thrush. This can cause recurrences of BV and sometimes lead to thrush!
BV occurs when there’s a change in the natural pH balance in your vaginas. This allows certain bacteria to grow which leads to symptoms such as strong vaginal odour and excess watery discharge. Being aware of the various triggers and signs as well as treatments is essential for managing your intimate health.
Causes of BV are numerous but often totally natural. It could be a new sexual partner (semen can alter the vagina's pH), your contraception (specifically an intrauterine device aka IUD) or even just having your period!Learn More
