BV or bacterial vaginosis tends to affect so many women from all walks od life. This is brought about by the disruption of the balance of the number of bacteria that reside in the vagina. Proliferation or over population of the bacteria results to a myriad of harmful signs and symptomsÂ especially when you are pregnant. Some of these are abnormal discharge from the vagina (yellow, white, grey), redness, itching, vaginal inflammation, and fishy odor of the discharge. You could be at risk of having BV if you practice promiscuity, smoke a lot, and use vaginal douches all the time.
