Vaginal itching caused due to be BV can often become acute and persistent. The urge to scratch can be so acute that one may want to do it in public. Imagine scratching with the risk of your colleagues watching and wondering what you are up to!
Of course you always have the option running to the washroom- but visiting the ladies room frequently can raise eyebrows too. No doubt it will help you relieve your itching and handle the discharge behind closed doors. It will however make others around you wonder what is making you rush to the wash room at frequent intervals

  • 1. How BV Symptoms Can Affect Your Daily Life Bacterial Vaginosis or BV for short is a very uncomfortable condition which almost 70% of women have to put up during their fertile years. This infection which causes vaginal itching and a fishy vaginal odor is known to affect women – both who are sexually active as well as those who are not. It is a myth that virgins cannot get bv. Although more common in sexually active women, bv can affect teenagers and women who are inactive sexually also. The primary cause of bv in most of us is an overgrowth of fungus and bacteria in the vagina. Here in this article I am going to share with you some of BV symptoms which can affect your daily life in more ways than one
  • 2. # Fatigue & tiredness When we have any infection (BV or something else) our body starts losing Vitamin B and folic acid. Vitamin B plays a major role in processing energy in our body. Deficiency of vitamin B/ folic acid can result in irritation, weakness and fatigue. It is therefore important to replenish vitamins in our system by taking oral supplements of Vitamin B and Folic Acid. Alternatively food rich in these vitamins can also help in fighting the infection in general and get rid of fatigue. # Vaginal discharge Excessive vaginal discharge which is the most common symptom of BV can make most of us feel dirty, unhygienic and uncomfortable. Any kind of physical work out tends to worsen the discharge and the fishy vaginal odor. This makes us stay away from gym, swimming pool etc. # Sex life
  • 3. The vaginal discharge and fishy smell can also play havoc with one’s sex life. Embarrassed by the discharge and odor many of us find excuses to avoid having sex with our partners. This in turn can affect the relationship we share with our partners. Those of us who irrespective of the excessive discharge engage in sex have to put up with another problem- enhanced fishy odor during and after sex! This can be absolutely repulsive and put off our sexual partners completely. # Vaginal itching Vaginal itching caused due to be BV can often become acute and persistent. The urge to scratch can be so acute that one may want to do it in public. Imagine scratching with the risk of your colleagues watching and wondering what you are up to! Of course you always have the option running to the washroom- but visiting the ladies room frequently can raise eyebrows too. No doubt it will help you relieve your itching and handle the discharge behind closed doors. It will however make others around you wonder what is making you rush to the wash room at frequent intervals! BV symptoms caused due to antibiotics Those of us who take antibiotics to treat BV based on our doctor’s advice have to put up with yet another BV symptom – the side effect of antibiotics - Candida
  • 4. yeast overgrowth. Prolonged use of antibiotics can lower our body’s natural immunity and cause problems like earaches, respiratory infections, athlete’s foot etc. Overgrowth of Candida yeast can result in a yeast infection of the vagina or vaginal thrush as it is popularly known. The reason that yeast thrives in this situation is because antibiotics create an acidic environment conducive for growth of yeast in our bodies.
