Bacterial Vaginosis

What is the Bacterial Vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is very common and it affects women of all ages. It occurs when the natural balance in your vagina is disturbed. Numerous types of bacteria naturally live in the vagina without causing harm or symptoms. If one type multiplies to an unusual extent, this can cause bacterial vaginosis.

Bacterial vaginosis results from an imbalance of bacteria in the vagina. Symptoms include vaginal discharge and odour.
Bacterial Vaginosis is not a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) and can be treated with medication.
