They aim to raise awareness of bacterial vaginosis and encourage women to learn more about the causes and symptoms.

Bacterial vaginosis is a common, but not well known, vaginal condition.

BV occurs when there is an imbalance  of the pH in the vagina which can cause lots of unpleasant symptoms such as fishy odour and abnormal thin, grey discharge from the vaginal area.

BV affects 1 in 3 women.

The campaign also encourages women to talk about all feminine health problems, not just BV.

If you think you might be suffering from bacterial vaginosis then please see your GP.

Would You Tell Your Friends Your Sex Secrets Or Intimate Health Issues?

It has been confirmed that women are more likely to talk about sex with their friends than their partners.

Women’s intimate health brand Balance Activ as part of BV Awareness Month have revealed that women won’t share sex secrets with their partners but will happily discuss with friends.

According to a study, 38% will reveal how often they have sex and 3 in 10 will give details such as where they have done the deed.

However, women are not as open to share details about intimate health matters.

Less than 1 in 5 women will discuss this with their friends as they fear they will be rejected or feel embarassed.

In a bid to encourage more women to talk about intimate health issues, Balance Activ and Dr Dawn Harper have organised its ‘Time to Talk’ campaign, in conjunction with BV (Bacterial Vaginosis) Awareness Month.

It isn’t just women who shy away from talking about sexual health matters – only 6% of men talk about these issues.

Some men feel embarassed to speak to their partners or GP about sexual health problems such as erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.
