I have been told that I have BV but I have no symptoms? I know that it could cause preterm lavour so I was wondering if anyone has because of it!

I had BV up until about 15 weeks of pregnancy. Very very important that you get antibiotics ASAP, as it will cause preterm labour and possibly an infection in the newborn. The sooner you are treated, the less likely you are to go into labour prematurely. Oh, and BV rarely shows symptoms, which is why it is routinely screened for.
