Do you ever have that...unfresh feeling? Maybe it's BV! Bacterial vaginosis, or BV, is the bane of vagina-owners and the healthcare providers who care for them. This garden-variety vaginal infection is the most common vaginal infection in the U.S., and yet is often misunderstood. In this episode, Miriam the midwife answers your question about what causes BV, whether it is a sexually-transmitted infection, how to deal with BV that won't go away, and whether sticking yogurt in yer vag is a good idea.
