how is bacterial vaginosis transmitted

Limiting the number of sex partners you have. Having multiple sex partners or having sex with a new partner may lead to bacterial vaginosis

Leaving vaginal douches on the store shelves during shopping trips. Vaginal douching is capable of creating a breeding ground for vaginal infections by upsetting the natural balance of the vaginal environment.

Making sure that you understand the potential risks of the intrauterine device for contraception. The fact is that having an IUD inserted into your uterus may be a key factor in the development of bacterial vaginosis.
