Understanding Women’s Health

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a vaginal infection caused by an overgrowth of bacteria. Every healthy vagina contains bacteria. Typically, these bacteria balance each other. Sometimes, the “bad” bacteria grow too much and overpower the “good” bacteria. This throws off the balance of bacteria in your vagina and leads to bacterial vaginosis.

Bacterial vaginosis may cause your vaginal discharge to have a “fishy” odor. It can also cause vaginal irritation in some people. Others may not have any symptoms of BV.

In addition to BV, the Women’s health panel also has STI and Candida Panel underneath it.

The Importance of Women’s Health Testing

Up to 84% of people with bacterial vaginosis don’t have symptoms. If you do, you may have: Off-white, gray or greenish-colored vaginal discharge, fishy-smelling vaginal discharge, especially after sex, vaginal itching or irritation, and a burning feeling when you pee.
