For some women,bv miracle bacterial vaginosis is little more than a temporary inconvenience and one which either goes away on its own or with a quick dose of antibiotics. For many of us though, BV becomes something which is always lurking in the background, ready to break out with a vengeance whenever it feels like it!
So why is this? Why do some women never have BV at all? Why do others only have it once and then it goes? Why do some of us never manage to get rid of bacterial vaginosis? Bacterial vaginosis is caused by an imbalance of the naturally occurring bacteria within the vagina. Under normal circumstances, the vagina’s own ecosystem manages very well without interference and is largely self-cleansing. Any harmful bacteria is dealt with by the beneficial bacteria which normally flourishes. Sometimes, the levels of harmful bacteria become high and cannot be dealt with as usual and this causes the symptoms of BV which include a foul, fishy smelling vaginal
discharge which is white/gray and watery. Some women also experience
itching and burning around the sensitive vaginal tissues.
There are many different reasons why this
imbalance might occur. Some women learn their own personal trigger points
but others simply cannot determine what is causing the outbreaks and nor
can experts. This means that endless rounds of antibiotics and over the
counter remedies will not get rid of bacterial vaginosis in the long term
because whatever is causing it is still present. Common causes include
smoking, overwashing, using perfumed products around the vagina,
douching, being “under the weather”, a change of sexual partner, wearing
damp swimwear and even wearing synthetic panties!
