National Bacterial Vaginosis Month: Infographic

Jacob Collyer-Smith Lifestyle Writer

This April 2016 marks National Bacterial Vaginosis Month. A campaign day launched by a company called Balance Activ, who manufacture a range of products for intimate health conditions such as bacterial vaginosis (BV). You’d be forgiven for not knowing about BV, as it sounds like a fairly rare condition right? Wrong. Surprisingly, bacterial vaginosis is one of the most common intimate health conditions which affects women. 1 in 3 women will have BV at some point during their lifetimes, but most people are completely unaware of the condition.

That’s why we’re right behind National Bacterial Vaginosis Month, this Saturday, and why we've created the infographic below, to help raise awareness of bacterial vaginosis, its causes and how you can recognise its symptoms. Please share, and help us to raise awareness of this little understood condition.
