Vaginal itching and irritation
Vaginal odor is stronger after sex
White or gray vaginal discharge, often excessive
Many people will tell you, the only way to get rid of the odor and
discharge caused by BV is with antibiotics. We all know what antibiotics
are going to do... cause a yeast infection. So why not try a natural
product that is guaranteed to work and causes no other health problems.
What is bacterial vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis is an abnormal vaginal condition that is most often
recognized by a fishy vaginal discharge. This is as a result from an
overgrowth of normal bacteria in the vagina. You may have heard of
Gardner Ella vaginitis. This is what this condition used to be called. It
was named after the bacterium that was thought to cause the condition.
New research found that there are several different species of bacteria
that live naturally in the vaginal area. Gardner Ella is not the only
bacteria causing all the odor. The name of this condition has been
changed to bacteria vaginosis to reflect these new findings.
When all the different species of bacteria become imbalanced, you will
notice a vaginal discharge that is associated with a fishy odor.
Bacterial vaginosis is not a STD. It is not passed by sex. It is very
embarrassing and disturbing but it is not dangerous. If you notice an
unusual discharge, you should have it checked so you can rule out
chlamydia and gonorrhea which are serious infections.
Symptoms of bacterial vaginosis?The symptoms of bacterial vaginosis are a foul, fishy odor and a grayish
white discharge. The amount of the discharge varies so there is no
amount that is considered "normal". There are no other symptoms. If
you have a vaginal discharge that is abnormal for you, it is a good idea
to see a health practitioner to rule out all other conditions. Some women
with bacterial vaginosis will experience no symptoms at all.
Current research has determined it is an imbalance of natural
What causes bacterial vaginosis?
vaginal bacteria that causes bacterial vaginosis. The problem is it is
not possible to determine when a bacterium is out of balance.
Consequently, locating the offending bacteria and eradicating it is
not a solution.
How is bacterial vaginosis diagnosed?Generally, your doctor will perform a pelvic exam to rule out other,
more serious, problems. A sample of the discharge will be collected to
examine under a microscope. Bacterial vaginosis can be distinguished
from other common problems, such as yeast, with this microscopic
There is a particular test your doctor can perform called a "whiff test". A
drop of potassium hydroxide testing solution is added to the discharge.
The result is usually a strong fishy odor.
How do you treat bacterial vaginosis?The most common treatment for bacterial vaginosis is antibiotics i.e Yeasticide
This helps you fight the yeast or bacteria in your pussy to the barest minimum.
Yeastrol - an antiboitic / antiyeast has been doing a damn good job and deserves
a mention on this blog.
Usually, one course of treatment is successful. A small percentage of
women will experience recurrent symptoms within a month.
Consequently, a second course of antibiotics will be prescribed.
As women, we know that taking antibiotics to cure this problem will
almost absolutely cause another problem, yeast infection. This is why
more and more women are seeking natural, herbal remedies for this
problem. With the antibiotics, you are trading one problem for another,
more difficult, problem.
Are there complications of bacterial vaginosis?Once bacterial vaginosis is treated, the fishy odor problem is usually
gone for good. No special follow-up is necessary if the symptoms
disappear. The infection is not transmitted sexually so sexual partners
need not be treated.
If you are pregnant, bacterial vaginosis can cause premature labor,
premature birth, infection of the amniotic fluid, and infection of the
uterus. You doctor will probably test for bacterial vaginosis early in your
pregnancy. Any unusual discharge during pregnancy should be reported
immediately to your doctor or mid-wife.
