Bacterial vaginosis is a NOT an infection

It is an overgrowth of harmful bacteria in the vagina due to the depletion of very valuable lactobacillus - reason unknown. The vagina normally contains a lot of "good" bacteria, called lactobacilli (say: "lack-toe bah-sil-li"), and a few other types of bacteria, called anaerobes (say: "ann-air-robes").

Too many anaerobes can cause bacterial vaginosis. We don't know why the anaerobe bacteria overgrow and cause this imbalance. You may notice a discharge from your vagina. The discharge may be clear or colored. It may be very light or heavy. It may have a fishy smell, especially after you have intercourse. Some women have bacterial vaginosis without any symptoms.
