Unraveling Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)

Bacterial Vaginosis, or BV, is a common vaginal infection characterized by an imbalance of bacteria in the vagina. While it can affect individuals of all ages, BV is more prevalent among women of reproductive age. Here’s what you need to know:

Common Causes of BV:

  • Bacterial Imbalance: BV occurs when there’s an overgrowth of harmful bacteria in the vagina, disrupting the natural balance.
  • Symptoms: BV often presents with symptoms like unusual vaginal discharge, a fishy odor, and itching or burning sensations.

Effective BV Treatments

Addressing BV typically involves medications and lifestyle adjustments. Here are some strategies for managing BV:

  1. Antibiotics: BV is commonly treated with prescription antibiotics, which can help restore the balance of vaginal bacteria.
  2. Probiotics: Some individuals find relief by incorporating probiotic supplements or foods into their diet to promote a healthy vaginal microbiome.
  3. Lifestyle Changes: Practicing safe sex, avoiding douching, and using gentle, unscented hygiene products can help prevent BV recurrence.
