Bacterial Vaginosis is a bacterial infection in the vagina that is very common, but a lot of women don't know about until they get it. It's caused when there is an imbalance of bacteria that are normally present in vagina.
Have you had BV? What's your experience been like? Can you share your story to help others?

I have had these horrible symptoms for 17 days now. It started with and awful vaginal itch, swelling, burning and a slight odor. My doctor diagnosed me with bacterial vaginosis (BV) and a yeast infection... but sometimes it gets so bad that I wish I could rip my vagina off..."
