Bacterial Vaginosis also known as BV is an infection of the vagina caused by an imbalance of a certain bacteria in the vagina causing a foul fishy smelling discharge. When the vagina is healthy it produces the right balanced amount of healthy bacteria and keeps the bad bacteria in check. If you are suffering with BV it means something threw off your vaginal flora.

Bacterial vaginosis/BV is considered a mild vaginal infection and may clear up on it's own if you don't engage in intercourse for two to seven days
