Allergy: Some women have reactions, almost like an allergic reaction, to their boyfriend/husband. Whether it's bacteria on his penis, yeast on his penis, something is causing irritation to your vagina when you come in contact with him. That's great that you've identified it, at least, so you know how to prevent it!

If your BV: Has been culture documented, have him seen by a urologist just to make sure he does not have a chronic prostatitis and u should start taking probiotics or acidolphilus pills everyday.
