Bacterial vaginitis

Bacterial vaginitis also referred to as Bacterial vaginosis, is one of the most frequently occurring conditions wherein there is fluid discharge from genitourinary tract of the female. It is characterized by inflammation of vagina and increased alkalinity or rise in pH in the regions surrounding it. About 10% women around the globe are affected by the condition. However as many as half of the women population have either mild or no symptoms. It is caused due to overgrowth of a particular set of bacteria which out competes the normal flora of vagina resulting in a shift from acidic to alkaline conditions. It is easy to treat the disease but if left untreated, bacterial vaginitis increases the risk of developing pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) as well as complications during pregnancy.
