Is it thrush or could it be BV?
Thrush is the second most common vaginal condition after Bacterial Vaginosis. Although 'Bacterial Vaginosis' sounds scary BV is actually very common, in fact more women in the UK suffer from it than any other vaginal condition. And it’s twice as prevalent as thrush, even though BV is often mistaken for thrush, purely because this is better known. Because very few people have heard of BV they typically treat symptoms as thrush. This can cause recurrences of BV and sometimes lead to thrush.
BV is often mistaken for thrush, but there are some key differences. Use our handy symptom checker below to see if you could have BV or thrush.
