Vaginal Bacteriosis

What is Vaginal Bacteriosis? How to Identify and Eliminate?

Vaginal bacteriosis is nothing but another name for the infamous bacterial vaginal issue - bacterial vaginosis. A number of people also know this issue as bacterial vaginitis or vagionsis. They are all the same problem under different (but closely similar) names.

No matter what you call it, vaginal bacteriosis is the most commonly observed vaginal infection caused by bacteria among women. And that too, the issue is prevalent among women of the child-bearing age rather than every woman of all ages. It is a problem caused by heavy growth of bacteria inside the female genitalia - especially the vagina.

Growth of bacteria inside the vagina is nothing surprising. In fact, it is expected to host millions of bacteria under normal circumstances. And it does host all of that. This is good for health of the vagina and the woman. However, there are certain kinds of bacteria that are expected to form this massive bacterial population. Not all bacteria are welcome inside the vagina, and there are classes of bacteria that harm the human vagina.

It is the growth of these harmful bacteria that leads a woman to have bacterial vaginosis (BV), or vaginal bacteriosis as it is also popularly known as. Under the circumstances that the good bacteria have reduced in count and the bad bacteria have increased to more than a desirable level, a woman is infected with BV. The consequences are not severe, but the overall problem is better avoided than carried along.

The primary symptom of the problem is a horrible odor coming out of vaginal discharge. The patient will experience discharge from the vagina on an ongoing basis. The discharge could be colorless but is likely to be yellowish or greenish in color. And it is characterized by its foul odor.

There are other symptoms associated with vaginal bacteriosis. These include a swollen vagina, itching inside it, and an inflammation during and after urination and intercourse. Each of these is a secondary symptom, and may or may not occur with the patient depending upon the case. However, the primary symptoms of bacterial vaginosis will practically always be present if you have BV.

BV can be confused with other non-bacterial vaginal infections such as yeast infections and trichomoniasis. The symptoms are similar but not the same. Again, the typical characterization of vaginal bacteriosis is the bad odor that is rather similar to rotten fish.

The traditional treatment of vaginal bacteriosis is using antibiotics. The antibiotics are designed to eliminate the bacteria from the vaginal zone. The catch is that these end up eliminating the good bacteria as well. Hence while it works to begin with, the solution is not the best possible. Also, since it does not eliminate the root cause (changed acidity level inside the vagina) the problem remains prone to come back.

The best bacterial vaginosis treatment, thus, is the natural one rather than the traditional. This is best done at home, using elements that are found in every-day life and would treat you by eliminating the root cause of the problem which in turn will automatically reduce the excess of bad bacteria. You need to apply the right combination of elements, and to the right extent. Obviously you would neither want to overdo it, nor would you want to apply the BV home treatment techniques too little to be effective. Proper application will quickly and permanently eliminate your vaginal bacteriosis.
