Our expert says:
Vaginal infections can be caused by bacteria(wiping the wrong way and infecting the vagina with bacteria from the anal area or transmission during sex), abnormal PH of the vagina (the vagina is self cleansing and douches disturbs the PH), using antibiotics, which lowers the normal good bacterial load in the body which normally protects us.
