Do You Have a Bacterial Vagina Infection?

Every woman is different down there, and sometimes it\’s hard to decide when something seems a little off. Usualy, signs of itchiness, burning, or a change in the amount or color of vaginal discharge are signs of a bacterial vagina infection.

But how do you know what kind of bacterial vagina infection you may have? The most common infection of the vaginal area experienced by women is called bacterial vaginosis, or BV for short. It is not a sexually transmitted disease, however it does develop as a result of an imbalance of natural healthy bacteria and an increase of harmful bacteria in the vagina.

Women who frequently engage in sexual activity with new partners are more prone to getting bacterial vaginosis, and can be found in around 20% of women who are pregnant. The most common symptoms of this bacterial vagina infection may or may not include:

* Different amounts of discharge from the vagina; * Thick or thin amounts of vaginal discharge with a grey or white coloring; * A strong, fishy smell of the vagina (especially right after engaging in sexual intercourse); * A burning sensation sometimes during urination; and * Itching and discomfort around the the vagina.

Although many women with BV experience these symptoms, most women who are diagnosed with BV actually report no symptoms at all. The bacterial vagina infection, BV, is still very misunderstood, but it is known that any woman can be affected, even if they are not sexually active. Frequent douching of the vagina, using heavily perfumed soaps in the bath or shower, wearing underwear or pants that are too tight, and experiencing other medical conditions have all been known to trigger a bacterial vaginosis infection for women.

As with any bacterial vagina infection, it\’s important to treat BV as soon as possible to reduce risk of further complications. A woman who lets her BV go untreated becomes more susceptible to HIV infection and other STDs, increases her risk of complications after a surgical procedure, and becomes more prone to experiencing pregnancy and delivery complications.

As far as treatment goes for this bacterial vagina infection, more and more women are turning toward homeopathic remedies that take advantage of all natural products such as tea tree oil and others to work together to cure bacterial vaginosis. Many women who decide to go the route of antibiotics report experiences of harsh side effects and even recurring symptoms of BV after being finished taking prescription medication.

An all-natural home remedy system can yield faster and more permanent results than antibiotics, often curing BV in as little as three days. To learn more about how to find treatment, visit my website at
