Bacterial vaginosis and yeast infection are both the results of imbalances in the normal flora of the vagina. A yeast infection involves an overgrowth of candida and related species. Odor is not a huge complaint of women with yeast. Symptoms may include redness and discomfort. The vaginal pH is normal. In contrast, bacterial vaginosis is a death of the protective bacteria in the vagina. Odor is a common complaint, but inflammation and irritation are not. The vaginal pH is usually higher than normal.

How can you differentiate yeast infection from bacterial?

I am not a Doctor or anything, but I can attempt to answer this question based on my own personal experiences. Although a yeast infection can have a funny odor, it is usually different from bacteria. Bacteria usually has a foul-like "fishy" odor. The discharge is usually thin, and clear. A yeast infection on the other hand, has a cottage cheese like discharge, and the smell is usually "musky". Not to mention a yeast infection itches like mad, and can be very annoying. My suggestion is to go to the Doctor and not to try and diagnose yourself, because although you can get medicine for a yeast infection over the counter, medicine for bacteria can only be prescribed, and trust me the longer you wait on either on of these infections the worse it is. Hope that helps,
