Symptoms of Bacterial Vaginosis


Visitors: 338

Millions of women every year experience bacterial vaginosis and many of these women will have recurring bacterial vaginosis.

One problem is that as many as fifty percent of the women with BV will not show any symptoms of bacterial vaginosis and therefore there are probably many more women that do not even know they have this infection.

What are the symptoms of bacterial vaginosis?

  • Increased or abnormal discharge
  • Fishy vaginal odor
  • Itching
  • Burning

While some discharge is of course perfectly normal for women if your discharge changes then this is an indication that something may be wrong.

The discharge of bacterial vaginosis will usually be white, gray or pearly gray and thin. The discharge will also tend to cling to the vaginal wall. The discharge may also carry the fishy vaginal odor.

The next symptom of bacterial vaginosis that is very distinct is the fishy vaginal odor. Again many women won't experience it but this symptom is what makes women take action because it is particularly annoying. It also can make a woman extremely embarrassed during public or intimate situations.

Women are also very likely to avoid intimate situations at all costs and will not reveal the reason why. This can lead to a great deal of increased stress to the woman and in the relationship.

The other two symptoms of bacterial vaginosis are not as likely to occur but they are also very vague indicators and could easily be representative of another problem like a yeast infection or any number of other female problems or potentially a *** transmitted disease (STD).
