Bacterial Vaginosis Information
When the delicate balance of bacteria in the vagina is disrupted, it can lead to bacterial vaginosis (BV). Symptoms may include a foul-smelling discharge, redness, and itching; however, many times symptoms are not apparent and the condition is only detected during a gynecological exam. Bacterial vaginosis is usually treated with antibiotics. Practicing safe sex is one of the most important things you can do to avoid infection.
