A.

Up to 50% of the women who have bacterial vaginosis do not have any symptoms. Most women learn they have the infection during their annual gynecologic exam. But if symptoms appear, they can include:

  • White or discolored discharge.
  • Discharge that smells "fishy" that is often strongest after sex.
  • Pain during urination.
  • Itchy and sore vagina.
