Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a bacterial infection caused by the imbalance of the pH in the vagina. Lactobacilli, an organism found in the vagina, helps to regulate the pH so that other bacteria cannot grow in the vagina. When other bacteria enters the vagina, it can reduce the amount of lactobacilli, which allows other bacteria to grow, resulting in BV.
BV may not present symptoms or you may notice a change in vaginal discharge. We have a range of BV treatments including tablets to treat the infection and vaginal gels.
