How can you get BV?

Dr Louisa Draper

"A healthy vagina contains bacteria called lactobacilli, which produce lactic acid. The lactic acid helps to keep the vagina slightly acidic, which stops other bacteria growing there. BV develops when the natural balance of bacteria in your vagina is upset, and there are not enough of the lactobacilli present to keep the vagina acidic. "

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common cause of vaginal discharge. It causes a grey or greyish-white discharge that can smell ‘fishy’.
