What are symptoms of bacterial vaginosis?

Many women with bacterial vaginosis usually have no symptoms. When symptoms do occur, the most common include:

  • Vaginal discharge that is usually thin and grayish white
  • Vaginal odor (foul-smelling or unpleasant fishy odor)
  • The vaginal discharge and odor are often more noticeable after sexual intercourse.

 The amount of vaginal discharge that is considered normal varies from woman to woman. Therefore, any degree of vaginal discharge that is abnormal for a particular woman should be evaluated.
