As a woman, it’s good to know the different types of condition that may affect us. For example, bacterial vaginosis, which is a type of bacterial infection of the vagina. I only got to know about this recently.
What is bacterial vaginosis then?
It is believed that bacterial vaginosis is a result of an overgrowth of bacteria that exist normally in the vagina, then causes the typical bacterial vaginosis symptoms, such as vaginal itching, abnormal milky white vaginal discharge that is smelly.
Rest assured that this infection is actually not a sexually transmitted disease, but somehow it can be triggered or worsen by intercourse, especially with someone new. Why is that so? Well, no science can explain that for the time being.
Weird enough, as many as 50% of women that have bacterial vaginosis have no symptoms at all!
Many causes can bring on bacterial vaginosis. One of them is believed to be due to an abnormal balances in a woman’s pH levels at the vaginal area. Sometimes, wearing the wrong type of undies, such as thongs, also can lead to this infection.
If you are experiencing symptoms that are similar to those of bacterial vaginosis, the best thing is to see a doctor! There’s a e-book available that teaches how to get rid of bacterial vaginosis. You can find out what this book is about in this bacterial vaginosis freedom review.
