Two in five women have Bacterial Vaginosis (BV), but 84% of those don’t know they have it.
In fact, it is the most common form of vaginal infection, yet not many people know about it.
BV occurs when the normal balance of good bacteria is overtaken by certain types of harmful bacteria. It is often misdiagnosed as thrush or as a yeast infection. Common symptoms include a fishy odor around the vagina, abnormal grey discharge, and vaginal discomfort like itching and burning. However, 50-75% of women with BV don’t experience any symptoms.
This is especially troubling because, according to the NIH, BV is associated with preterm labor, preterm birth, and preterm PROM (premature rupture of membranes). Therefore it is especially important for women who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant to be aware (and beware) of BV.
