Two years ago I was having constant BV issues. No sooner would it clear up, then it would come back again especially in the warmer summer months. I was exercising regularly at the time, I had a steady boyfriend and at first I thought he may have been the cause but then I realized he wasn't to blame. My doctor kept implying that I wasn't keeping myself clean enough which was very frustrating because I knew darn well that wasn't the case. One day I finally decided to stop using tampons. An absolute pain I know but ever since I stopped using them, I've had no more BV problems.
