When acidity in the vagina is reduced, the number of protective bacteria (lactobacilli) that are found in the vagina also decreases. The reduction of these protective bacteria can increase your chances of get infected with bacterial vaginosis.

#2. Poor hygiene: some ladies don't know how to keep clean, especially the genital area. Keeping a poor hygiene is very dangerous and is capable of increasing the number of bacteria in the genital area which can cause vaginal infections.
