When you’re pregnant you kind of think that because your periods are on pause for nine months that you’re also going to be free from yeast infections and BV, but unfortunately that’s often not the case!
Approximately 10% – 30% of pregnant women will experience bacterial vaginosis (BV) during their pregnancy. But don’t worry! EmpressBody has got a holistic solution to help you treat your BV using natural products that will also help your pregnancy.
Pregnancy can cause an increase of bad bacteria in your delicate yoni area, and lead to problems like a BV infections. If you’re pregnant and you have BV visit your doctor to discuss how to manage it. It’s best to get checked out as BV can cause complications such as:

What causes BV?
Bacterial vaginosis is caused by an imbalance in the normal bacteria that exist in a woman’s vagina. It is not transmitted sexually but is associated with having vaginal intercourse. Some people experience lots of symptoms and some women don’t experience any at all.
Any woman can get it, but you’re at increased risk for BV if you:
· Have new sex partners
· Have more than one sex partner
· Douche (use water or other liquid to clean inside the yoni)
· Are pregnant
· Are African-American. BV is twice as common in African-American women than in white women.
· Have an intrauterine device (also called IUD), especially if you have irregular bleeding. An IUD is a kind of birth control. It's a t-shaped piece of plastic that's placed in your uterus that helps prevents prevent pregnancy.
