Bacterial Vaginosis can appear and disappear without any reason, and around half of all women with BV are asymptomatic (do not have any symptoms).
If there are no symptoms, treatment is not necessary. Where there are symptoms, antibiotics may be recommended. Here are several symptoms or signs of bacterial vaginosis.
- A foul, or fishy, vaginal odor, often noticed after sexual intercourse.
- White or grayish vaginal discharge, that may be thin in consistency.
- Burning during urination and/ or itching around the outside of the vagina.
- Light vaginal bleeding
