What Is Bacterial Vaginosis?

Bacterial vaginosis is considered as a sexually transmitted disease, although the exact cause for the bacterial infection of the vagina is unknown. Although it is a common infection among women, there are some potential health risks associated with the disease. It’s important for a woman to be able to recognize the signs and symptoms so that she may get treatment.

Stay away from hot bathes and showers! All of us indulge in a long hot soaking bath from time to time and it’s not feminine friendly. All of those added items in your bath water also have access to your vagina. If the water is too hot and you are not using any remedies to combat bacteria they will look at this as an invitation to invade your body. Bacteria thrive on heat so the best thing to do is take a warm tepid bath with colloidal oatmeal and baking soda. This will help to neutralize the acidity and decrease your vaginal ph levels.

WaterWorks can be used every day when you shower. It uses only natural, plain tap water to clean the vagina. Its medical grade stainless steel nozzle and running water react with the vaginal mucosa to remove unwanted odors to give you more confidence. Many women use it after sex to rinse out semen right away, which can help prevent vaginal discharge and odor afterwards. I’ve had patients who have struggled with odor for years who find they have no odor after the first use! You can imagine their relief.

You should not use Bactrim if you are allergic to sulfamethoxazole or trimethoprim, if you are heavy or breast-feeding, or if you conceive anemia (lack of red blood cells) caused by folic stinging dearth. Before using Bactrim ( Generic Bactrim ), delineate your doctor if you have kidney or liver disease, a folic acrid deficiency, asthma or penetrating allergies, AIDS, a glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase or if you are malnourished.

Brucellosis Infection: Brucellosis in dogs, is caused by Brucella canis bacteria. The transmission of the bacteria is through the mucous membranes. The bacteria may hence enter the body through nose, mouth, conjunctiva of the eye and the vagina. It is commonly transmitted via mating, and hence usually occurs in the breeding season. While the male dogs may develop prostatitis, the infected pregnant females abort their fetuses; if born, puppies die shortly afterwards. It should be noted, that Brucella canis can also cause disease in humans.
