  Sexually transmitted diseases - Bacterial Vaginosis
 
I have never even heard of bacterial vaginosis, and now my doctor says I have it. What are the implications?

This bacterial infection is also found in women who are not sexually active, so the means of infection is not proven. Some women experience a pale runny discharge, which can be accompanied by an unpleasant smell. However many women who are infected have no symptoms at all.

If your infection had not been detected, the possibility could have existed of premature labour. The infection is treatable with antibiotics, so you should not face any problems.
