Know Your Bacterial Vaginosis Treatment Options

April 2nd, 2008 by Jason Katzenback

An estimated 1 out of 4 women who have symptoms of bacterial vaginosis, also known as BV have noticed that their symptoms have disappeared on their own. The reason why this happens is because when the vaginal lactobacilli organisms begin to increase back to their normal levels, other bacteria levels in the vagina begin to drop. Even though this form of vaginitis may disappear on its own, doesn’t mean that it always will. If you have a case of bacterial vaginosis and you do find that it’s not going away, then it’s time for alternative bacterial vaginosis treatments.

Bacterial vaginosis is an inflammation of the vagina, some signs and symptoms can include things such as: A foul smelling odor with vaginal discharge, vaginal discharge maybe milky white, yellow or even a thin gray color. Other symptoms can also include, burning when you urinate, itchiness and the area in or around the vagina maybe tender as well. If you do suffer from this form of vaginitis always remember there are several different bacterial vaginosis treatments available, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. It is considered the most common form of vaginitis.
