Bacterial vaginosis refers to vaginal inflammation arising from an imbalance of naturally occurring bacterial flora in the vagina. Both good bacteria and bad bacteria are present in the vagina. Bacterial vaginosis occurs when the natural balance between these bacteria is disrupted and bad bacteria (anaerobic bacteria) outgrows the number of good bacteria (lactobacilli that keeps vagina slightly acidic and keep a check on overgrowth of bad types of bacteria) residing in the vagina. Homeopathic medicines for bacterial vaginosis majorly helps to reduce the vaginal discharges, vaginal itching and complaint of burning during urination.   homeopathic medicines for bacterial vaginosis
