Bacterial Vaginosis-Better Help Information



Bacterial vaginosis is a type of vaginal inflammation caused by the overgrowth of bacteria naturally found in the vagina, which upsets the natural balance. Women in their reproductive years are most likely to get bacterial vaginosis, but it can affect women of any age.


Symptoms include

Vaginal discharge with foul-smelling Grayish or white vaginal discharge Burning sensation while urinating Itching around the vagina area


Causes

It is not a sexually transmitted disease, but an infection that can be transmitted from one sexual partner to another.

Overgrowth of one of several bacteria presents naturally in the vagina. The risk factors include: Having multiple sex partners Douching Natural lack of lactobacilli bacteria
