Bacterial vaginosis is caused by imbalances in levels of lactobacillus in the vagina. However certain risk factors like smoking, douching or frequent sexual activity can increase chances of getting BV.
Though there are no physical signs, some common symptoms of BV include:
Burning sensation after urination
Fishy bacterial vaginosis smell that gets stronger after sex
Itching and irritation
Thin white, grey, or green vaginal discharge
There are several studies to show the ability of vitamin C to combat infection. Hence, vitamin C is helpful in fighting bacterial infections like bacterial vaginosis.
There are no over-the-counter drugs which can cure bacterial vaginosis. Doctors will prescribe drugs like Metronidazole, Clindamycin or Tinidazole for BV treatment.
Ignoring BV can cause further complications and increase a woman's risk of contracting STDs like chlamydia, gonorrhoea, herpes or HIV.
