Quick question for the community and I don't know if its a dull one, I am hoping I'm not alone on this... but what's the difference between BV and a Yeast Infection? And is there a noticeable difference? Or is it something only your OBGYN can differentiate? 

I ask because I am prone to yeast infections and/or have only ever been diagnosed with a yeast infection from my doctor, therefore, I always tell myself its a yeast infection because of similar symptoms from previous diagnosis and treat them as such. BUT I see that BV and yeast infection are both very similar and very common so how can one differentiate? And I feel that my doctor exams are always so quick so I have no idea if I am being diagnosed correctly and therefore being treated correctly. What's the difference? Are they treated differently?
