  • it can be, becuz douching takes out the healthy bacteria that fights the bad bacteria, so with nothing downthere fighting for the greater good, the bad a nutshell...instead of douching I just soak in a hot bath with summers eve bath wash after my cycle or sex or whenever you are not feeling the freshest, its wayyy safer than douching.

  • It's not because I got it when I wasn't sexually active. I don't douche either though, so I don't know why I had it.

  • what is BV?

  • BV is not always sexually contracted! Preganant women and women who douche are at risk because the ph in the vagina changes cultivating bacteria that causes the infection. Make sense? So if you have sex with the infection you could pass it on! But it doesn't mean you got it from sex,most of the time it's cultivated from your own body.
