Bacterial Vaginosis Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis, And Treatment Information

Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is a condition that occurs as a result of a PH and bacterial imbalance in the female genitals. It commonly occurs in women of childbearing age. The symptoms can cause a lot of embarrassment for any women suffering from this condition. In most cases the symptoms include abnormal discharge, unpleasant odor and pain, itching or burning.

In case of adults, pregnant women, and breastfeeding mothers, this condition is treated with oral antibiotics such as cefuroxime or amoxicillin. Doxycycline is prescribed for children. In case, the disease has progressed, intravenous antibiotics are recommended. Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen or aspirin are helpful to manage the symptoms of arthritis seen in Lyme disease.

The congestion that accompanies a chest cold is caused by inflammation and an accumulation of mucus. According to Ask Dr. Sears, this mucus serves as a breeding ground for germs. When bacteria in the mucus multiply, an acute bacterial infection can develop. The side effects of these illnesses include fever, cough, wheezing, chest tightness and, in severe cases, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing.

Thanks for this site. I've had my Mirena only for 5 weeks and will be getting it removed tomorrow morning. I feel duped by not knowing all of these side effects prior to insertion. This was to make life easier – not more complicated! It's nice to read that other women were not aware of what all this IUD could do to their body. Sorry it's a lot, but now I'm taking so many medicines that I think that it will help me with the upcoming crash. Then I can talk about getting off these things! I would love to be all natural again. I now have a hysterectomy scheduled and am quite happy about it. Never thought I'd write those words.

If you are suffering from chronic bv, then you are not alone. This infection is the most common infection among women in the country and it may truly be very embarrassing and stressful. When appropriate bv treatment is not done, it might lead to an inflammatory disease in the pelvis and pose serious problems. This is principally true if the woman concerned is pregnant. It may spread up to the uterus and cause low-birth weight babies or even premature deliveries.
