It develops when there's an imbalance between the "good" bacteria in the vagina that are helpful and the "bad" bacteria that can cause problems. Bacterial vaginosis may cause pain, itching, and a bad-smelling discharge. But most girls with BV don't notice any symptoms — and that's not necessarily a good thing.

There is no single HIV prevention technology which suits everyone — young African women who have tried four different vaginal products make different choices, with no one product being much more popular than the others, researchers told the HIV Research for Prevention conference HIVR4P in Madrid this week. Activists took to the stage during both the opening and closing sessions to express their concern about decisions by the US National Institutes of Health to reduce funding for the development of microbicides and other topical products. Too often, health products are developed and brought to communities without stopping to ask whether the product is something people want and will use.

Instead of correcting them, I just nodded and faked my share of orgasms because I prioritized men feeling comfortable over my own sexual pleasure. Studies tell us that up to 67 percent of women who have experienced penile-vaginal intercourse have faked orgasms. What I like to call the three-strokes-of-penetration-bite-your-lip-arch-the-back-and-moan routine.
