What is Bacterial Vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis is a type of vaginal inflammation primarily caused by accelerated growth of naturally-occurring bacteria in the vagina. As a result of this bacterial overgrowth, a women’s natural balance is consequently upset and can lead to bacterial vaginosis.

The vagina contains a bacteria called Lactobacilli. They produce lactic acid, making the vagina slightly acidic. This helps to prevent some harmful bacteria from growing there. When there are lower levels of Lactobacilli, it can cause the vagina to become less acidic. If the vagina is not acidic enough, harmful bacteria can grow and thrive.

What are the symptoms of Bacterial Vaginosis?
Bacterial Vaginosis is a result of an imbalance of beneficial and harmful bacteria in the vagina. An imbalance can occur due to many reasons including having sex with a new partner, having sex with multiple partners, not using protection during sex, or being pregnant.

Symptoms associated with Bacterial Vaginosis include:
  • Vaginal itchiness
  • Burning sensation when peeing
  • odor
  • Unusual vaginal discharge
The vaginal discharge may have a watery, thin consistency, and a strong, unpleasant smell, often described as fishy. While the mentioned conditions may not be overly worrisome for some, they should, in any case, be thoroughly and effectively treated.
