What is Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)?

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a type of vaginal infection caused by an overgrowth of bacteria. BV is the most common vaginal infection in women of childbearing age.

Although it may cause a number of uncomfortable and troubling symptoms (discharge, odor, itching), it is not generally considered a serious condition.

While BV is not considered a sexually transmitted infection (STI), it is often associated with sexual activity, and it can increase a woman’s risk of developing other STIs.

What Are the Symptoms of Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)?

Many women experience symptoms of Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) at some point in their lives. The most common symptoms include a fishy odor, burning, itching, and discomfort during urination or intercourse. Some women also experience a gray or white discharge. These symptoms can be mild or severe, and they may come and go. 

BV symptoms include:

  • White, gray, or even greenish vaginal discharge
  • Thin, watery, or milky discharge
  • Foul or “fishy” smelling vaginal odor
  • Vaginal itching
  • Burning feeling during urination
  • Pain or discomfort during intercourse
  • Sore or painful vagina

What Causes Bacterial Vaginosis?

Bacterial vaginosis is caused by an overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina. This can happen when there is a change in the pH balance or when the good bacteria that keep the vagina healthy are killed off.

Almost anything that disrupts the normal vaginal environment can lead to bacterial vaginosis, including:

  • Douching
  • Sexual activity
  • Spermicides
  • Antibiotics
  • Having a new sexual partner
  • Poor bathroom hygiene
  • Pregnancy

How Is Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) Treated?

BV is treated with antibiotics, which can be taken orally or applied directly to the vagina in the form of a cream or gel.

In some cases, BV may resolve on its own without treatment. However, BV can increase the risk of other vaginal infections, such as yeast infections and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), so it is important to see a doctor if you think you may have BV. 

Common BV Prescription Medication

There are a number of different antibiotics that can be used to treat BV. The most common include metronidazole and clindamycin.

Other antibiotics used to treat BV include:

  • Tinidazole
  • Azithromycin
  • Secnidazole
