BV vs. Yeast Infection

Time to get educated on our vagina’s favorite infections! Bacterial Vaginosis is the most common vaginal infection with yeast infections following close behind at number 2. There are many similarities between the two infections that can make them confusing and hard to identify. We are here to shed some light on the situation so you can know what infection has come to rain on your V’s parade.

What is a yeast infection?

In your vagina, there exists a mix of bacteria. The bacteria, candida, is a type of yeast that is always present in the vagina. When there is an overgrowth of the candida and your flora becomes unbalanced, you can get a yeast infection. A vaginal yeast infection, also known as vulvovaginal candidiasis, can be caused by a few things. You can have a higher risk of getting a yeast infection if you have a spike in estrogen from birth control, you regularly take antibiotics, you are pregnant, have a weaker immune system, douche, and a few others. The symptoms you will likely experience are itchiness and irritation of the vagina along with white to light yellow discharge that has a cottage like consistency. The odor will be non-existent or it will have a yeasty kind of smell (like bread).


What is BV?

BV or bacterial vaginosis is caused by an imbalance of bacteria in your vagina. There is a balance between a mix of good and bad bacteria, lactobacillus being one of the good bacterias that keep your vaginal pH more acidic. When the good bacteria drops, the number of bad bacteria can increase and cause BV. This infection can be caused by having intercourse with multiple partners, douching, and smoking. Some of the symptoms include a burning sensation when you pee, gray or yellow discharge that is thin and the discharge odor can smell fishy.


How do I treat them?

Typically when you have a yeast infection, you can treat it with over the counter medication, like Queen V’s Eraser! BV is usually treated by prescribed antibiotics, but the Eraser can help relieve the symptoms. If you believe that you have a vaginal infection, the best course of action would be to visit your doctor. They will diagnose your infection and give advice on the best treatment!

The Eraser is gone cause it’s boric acid. It’s a pesticide. Boric Acid is used to kill roaches. Buy empty gel capsules fill with boric acid.
