Testing Reaffirms the Need for Improved Safety Standards for Vaginal-Use Products

BV is incredibly common — it is estimated that at least 75% of women in the U.S. will experience episodes of vaginitis at some point during their life. This new testing joins the growing evidence linking the use of intimate care products to vaginal infections, and also raises questions on if the products many people are using to “self-treat” BV symptoms, may in fact be worsening the problem.
