Dr. Wayne Ingram
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
BV reasons listed: 1). Poor vaginal hygiene with the use of harsh soaps, douches, feminine deodorant products, and malodorous clothing/underwear or tight jeans. 2). Misdiagnosis and/or incomplete or inappropriate Rx dosing. 2). Failure to cleans dildos, sex toys, and worse, live male multiple partners. 4). A undiagnosed STD. The vagina is really self cleansing like an oven if the pH is restored properly.
