I am highly aware of hygiene and cleanliness so why to I have BV?
Hi, I am 25 years old and I have Bacterial vaginosis. I keep myself clean and hygienic but still suffering from BV why?
@iqra Hi The cause of BV is not poor hygiene. Excessive vaginal cleansing can be a contributing factor for the cause of BV, by disturbing the balance of the bacteria in the vagina. Also, avoid using bath oils, detergents and bubble bath. If you smoke, this can be an additional contributing factor. In addition, poor health and hot weather can also be contributing factors. If you have experienced menopause or suffer from diabetes, the risk of having BV is greater than normal.
