In brief: Good Hygiene
Bv (bacterial vaginosis) is a bacterial vaginal infection.
It is caused by an overgrowth of bacteria when there has been a shift in the normal vaginal environment. Bv is not sexually transmitted. Wear cotton underwear. Do not wear tight clothing. Do not douche. Be careful of bubble baths and body washes. Take a multivitamin, dha and probiotics to boost your immune system.
