Bacterial Vaginosis: Signs of Infection

By Nabta Team

Did you know that like our stomach, the vagina has an acidic environment? This environment is maintained by the normal bacteria present in the vagina. A change in the composition of the bacteria can result in bacterial vaginosis: characterized by a watery, fishy vaginal discharge is the most common infection of the vagina.

Bacterial vaginosis increase the risk of late miscarriage (between 14 and 24 weeks' gestation) and preterm births.

Additional physical symptoms could include a burning sensation while peeing as well as itching around the vagina. Make sure you visit your doctor if you have these symptoms, as this condition is only treatable by antibiotics.
