What Is Bacterial Vaginitis?

Bacterial vaginitis is a condition that causes inflammation and discomfort in the vaginal region. Seeking gynecological help for bacterial vaginitis can alleviate symptoms.

This video discusses the most common causes, symptoms, and treatment options for bacterial vaginitis. Lifestyle activities and medication usage can lead to this problem. Douching can disrupt the pH balance in the vaginal area and trigger bacterial vaginitis. Using antibiotics can also lead to an outbreak of this condition. In some cases, engaging in sexual activity may make women more susceptible to bacterial vaginitis. Many women become aware of their condition when they experience abnormal vaginal discharge, odor, or pain. A gynecologist can prescribe an antifungal medication to relieve symptoms.
