This infection affects approximately one in three women at some stage of their lives, and is quite common to not notice any symptoms of BV. Some women mistakenly believe that BV is not a serious infection and will not lead to any complications if left untreated, but this is not the case.
Gardnerella vaginalis, also known as Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) can lead to an increased risk of developing pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which can lead to infertility, and endometriosis. Your susceptibility for other STIs, including HIV, is increased. Untreated BV in pregnant women can lead to complications, including miscarriage or premature birth.
Gardnerella vaginalis (BV), is not usually directly transmitted through sexual intercourse, but is more common in sexually active women. BV is caused by a combination of different bacteria that upset the natural balance of the vagina. The most typical symptom of BV includes an abnormal white vaginal discharge with an unpleasant fishy smell, which may appear after sexual intercourse. Often BV is not painful or uncomfortable and may not be easily noticeable, so you should get tested regularly if you're sexually active.
You should take a gardnerella vaginalis BV test two weeks after you last had unprotected sex. If you have already been treated and would like to check that your infection has cleared successfully, you can also take the test. We provide safe and discreet BV testing for men and women.
