What causes Bacterial Vaginosis?
Bacterial Vaginosis the most common infection of the vagina which causes discharge in the vagina and a fishy smell caused by misbalance of microorganism present in vagina.Healthy vagina normally has a balance of mostly “good” bacteria(Lactobacilli) and fewer “harmful” bacteria . Lactobacilli(good bacteria) stop other vaginal microorganisms from multiplying to a level where they cause symptoms. Reduction of lactobacillus (good bacteria) in vagina allows more resistant bacteria to gain a foothold, multiply. This causes increase in concentration of bad bacteria and it causes infection called Bacterial vaginosis. It’s not a STD(sexual transmitted disease). Bacterial vaginosis is a common condition, and studies have shown that approximately 1 out of 3 women in the US are affected.
