Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is an overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina. When too much of that bacteria grows and spreads, the body’s natural balance is disrupted, and result in rise in vaginal pH to >4.5 (Normal vaginal pH ranges from 4.0 to 4.5)
Risk factors for developing BV includes frequent douching or sexual intercourse or cigarette smoking.
BV is not considered an STD so sexual partners do not require treatment
Abnormal vaginal discharge
Foul odor (Fishy smell)
Symptoms are more noticeable after sexual intercourse and during menses
Thankfully, treating bacterial vaginosis doesn’t have to be scary or overwhelming. In most cases, it can be treated with antibiotics (pills, cream, or gel)
It may reoccur within 3-12 months, so additional treatments may be needed.
