Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a vaginal infection. It is caused by an overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina: when there are more anaerobic bacteria (“bad”) than lactobacilli bacteria ("good"). Bacterial vaginosis has normally no symptoms, but when it has, they may include a burning sensation when you urinate, a fishy smell, itching, and white, gray, or green discharge. It can be treated with antibiotics prescribed by a doctor, which can be taken by mouth, in the form of a cream or gel to put in the vagina.
