Tips on how to avoid BV during quarantine
People have been stock-piling cupboard essentials and frozen foods due to the impact of Covid-19. It's no secret that these foods are full of preservatives and possess little or no nutritional value, unlike fresh foods. This is fine in the short term, but in the long term this diet could impact the normal pH level of your vagina. A deficiency in essential nutrients can also cause numerous health issues such as weak immune system and fatigue. There are simple changes that we can make to our diet to avoid a case of bacterial vaginosis (BV) during this time at home in quarantine.
Similar to pickled foods and citrus fruit, the yoni grows a particular type of good bacteria that helps it maintain a slightly acidic pH. The normal pH of your own vagina is similar to that of tomato juice. However, once it starts creeping up to that of coffee, an overgrowth of bad bacteria can take hold and cause bacterial vaginosis, which affects 29 percent of American women, which is almost 1 in 3. BV is one of the most common feminine health issues out there; but there’s no shame in it and with EmpressBody it’s easily fixed.
BV often features a distinctive fishy odour, which is a consequence of a compound of decay called putrescine, also found in certain foods. Traditional risk factors for BV or bacterial vaginosis include douching, which has also been associated with a wide range of problems. With no demonstrable benefits and considerable evidence of harm, douching should be strongly discouraged.

Poor nutrition is high on the list of risk factors for BV or bacterial vaginosis. Women appear more likely to get bacterial vaginosis if they have lower circulating levels of phytonutrients like vitamin C and beta carotene in your bloodstream - indicating a lower intake of fruits and vegetables - highly likely during this time of quarantine for coronavirus. Researchers also suggest that high fat intake such as saturated fat may increase vaginal pH, thereby increasing the risk of bacterial vaginosis. This means that dietary changes are a relatively simple way to reduce your risks of BV:
Increase your daily intake of vitamin C by eating more fruits and vegetables. These offer a wide range of health benefits aside from helping stave off BV.

Reduce the amount of foods that contain saturated fats from your diet. In other words, less fast food and more fresh cooking with healthy ingredients. EmpressBody knows that in today’s current quarantine situation, cooking fresh meals with fresh fruit and vegetables can be difficult, but highly recommend cooking in bulk a couple of times each week. This will have a positive impact on overall health.
You should avoid the following:
· Avoid perfumed soaps, bubble bath or shower gel
· Avoid vaginal deodorants, washes or douches
· Avoid antiseptic liquids in the bath
· Avoid strong detergents to wash your underwear
