Does something seem a little off down there? Maybe you’re experiencing pain, itching, or a difference in vaginal discharge? Any of these symptoms are enough to make a woman worry about her health. If you’d like to figure out what’s going on with your body, keep reading.
Bacterial Infection In Vagina Fact #1:
Most women do not properly diagnose their symptoms. In fact, over 44% of women who diagnose themselves with a yeast infection actually end up having a bacterial vaginosis (BV) infection.
Bacterial Infection In Vagina Fact #2:
Even though the symptoms of bacterial vaginosis and a yeast infection are similar, they are both very different infections. A yeast infection is a result of a fungus (yeast, or candida albicans) becoming unbalanced in the vagina as well as the intestinal tract, usually from a change in diet or other antibiotic drugs. The Candida start to multiply, resulting in a yeast infection.
Bacterial Infection In Vagina Fact #3:
Bacterial vaginosis is the most common of all vaginal infections in women. BV is a result of an imbalance of “good” bacteria in relation to “harmful” bacteria. As the harmful bacteria increases, the good bacteria become wiped out, thus leading to a bacterial vaginosis infection.
Bacterial Infection In Vagina Fact #4:
If you are experiencing symptoms of a thick, white, and odorless vaginal discharge, these are the signs of a yeast infection.
Bacterial Infection In Vagina Fact #5:
If you are experiencing symptoms of a thin, milky white or gray vaginal discharge that is also accompanied by an unpleasant or fish-like smell, these are the signs of a bacterial vaginosis infection.
Bacterial Infection In Vagina Fact #6:
It’s very important to pay close attention to your symptoms to avoid misdiagnosis because both infections are very different and require different treatments. More often than not, most women find themselves with a bacterial vaginosis infection.
Treatment for BV can vary from prescription antibiotics to over the counter medication to homeopathic remedies. More and more women are turning toward homeopathic remedies as opposed to prescription drugs because of the bad rep that these sorts of medications get for bringing with them harsh side effects (nausea, headaches, itchiness, etc.).
In addition, many women report recurring symptoms of BV after finishing prescribed antibiotics or over the counter treatments, whereas the use of all natural products have been reported to yield faster and much more permanents cures.
With a proper all-natural system that makes good use of natural products (for example, tea tree oil), the natural balance of bacterial flora can be easily and naturally replenished in as little as three days.
