This could be BACTERIAL VAGINOSIS.When different types of bacteria outnumber the normal bacteria, Lactobacillus, an imbalance is caused in the bacterial organisms that exist in the vagina.Instead of Lactobacillus bacteria being the most numerous, increased numbers of other organisms are found in the vaginas of women with Bacterial vaginosis (BV) such as:bacteroides,gardnerella vaginalis, mobiluncus, mycoplasma hominis. Bacterial Vaginosis is also called Gardnerella-associated vaginitis, and nonspecific vaginitis. It is one of the most common causes of vaginitis symptoms among women, particularly those who are sexually active, producing painful inflammation of the vagina.Although more than 50% of women with Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) have no symptoms, when symptoms do occur they include:excessive, thin gray or white vaginal discharge that sticks to the vaginal walls,fishy or musty, unpleasant vaginal odor, most noticeable after sex,vaginal itching and irritation. The risk of acquiring Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is increased by:changing sexual partners,douching, and using intrauterine devices (IUDs). Diagnosis is made by: going to the doctor,undergoing a pelvic examination,change in pH of vaginal fluid,If the vaginal cells have the classic appearance of 'clue cells', cells from the vaginal lining that are coated with Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) organisms, which appear in Bacterial Vaginosis (BV). And as added confimation the sample is mixed with potassium hydroxide and produces a strong fishy odor when the bacteria is present . Bacterial Vaginosis can be difficult to cure using either conventional or alternative treatments. The usual treatment is antibiotics, taken orally or vaginally. Which include Ampicillin, Ceftriaxone, Clindamycin,and Tetracycline. Bacterial Vaginosis is thought to be associated with ectopic pregnancy,infertility, low birth weight,pelvic infections, and premature birth. It doesn't go away on it's own. You should go to the doctor and get an exam, Basically a pap. They have this gel you can get and apply it for 5 days. It's non invasive. There you could talk with your doctor about other possiblities other then bacterial vaginosis.... if that is not what this is. It's common. A lot of women have it. Most don't even know it...
