One of the most common problems with female intimate organs is bacterial vaginosis, which was reported by every third in statistics.
What it is?
As you know, not all bacteria are equally bad, inside you are usually maintained a balance of good and bad. And if it shifts in the wrong direction, you can diagnose bacterial vaginosis.
What is the reason?
A lot of them. In some people, good bacteria hold tight the defense, others are exposed to unpleasant influences. Stress, prolonged use of antibiotics, thorough washing of the genitals with soap – all this provokes the growth of bad microorganisms.
How to make a diagnosis?
If you have an unpleasant smell – especially with weakness – go to the gynecologist, who will inspect and take a smear. When you examine the contents under a microscope, you can see if the bacteria have chosen the cells – as if on circles someone poured the ground pepper. So it’s bacterial vaginosis.
How to cure it?
As a rule, an antibiotic is prescribed for Flagyl (Metronidazole), which is taken once. But self-treatment in such cases is very dangerous!
Why is it so important to treat bacterial vaginosis?
Infection adversely affects the mucous membranes inside the vagina, and your body becomes vulnerable to much more unpleasant diseases. So you need to treat it, especially with an active sexual life.
How to protect yourself?
If you have already found vaginosis, the best prevention is regularly eating yoghurt and other sour-milk products that inhabit the body with useful bacteria. And, of course, do not forget about the support of the flora, when you drink antibiotics from other diseases.
