Bacterialvaginosis is a disease that's caused by the overgrowth of a type of bacteria that's called Gardnerella vaginalis, Gardnerella vaginalis. And as the name might suggest, this is the most common vaginal infection. Now I wanna put these really big quotes
around the term infection because the thing that's interesting about Gardnerella vaginalis is that it's a bacteriathat's naturally found in the vagina. Now some may consider this to be a sexually transmitted infection, which is interestingbecause it doesn't cause
any problems until there'stoo much of it there. So when we look to the causes of bacterial vaginosis, they are all things that change the vaginal environment. That can include acts like douching, so douching, or rinsing of the vagina. The other is having newor multiple sex partners.
And finally, another known cause is the use of antibiotics. This could be in the case of somebody that has a throat infection or a pneumonia that's on antibiotics which will then attackthe bacteria that exists within the vagina andallow Gardnerella vaginalis to overgrow and cause bacterial vaginosis.
So we've touched a little bit on it here, but I wanna draw it out. So when we talk about the pathophysiology of a disease, we'retalking about the mechanism by which that disease occurs. So in order to understandthe pathophysiology of bacterial vaginosis, we need to take a look at a sample of bacteria
that exists in the vagina. So I'll draw out someGardnerella vaginalis bacteria, and so I'll put this up in our key. This is the symbol forGardnerella vaginalis. And I'll draw a few of them around here, but I also wanna show that there are a lot of other bacteriathat exist in this sample. So if you really look at it here,

Vagina Warning Signs that Your Vagina is Unhealthy
Warning Signs that Your Vagina is Unhealthy1. Itching Burning A constant itching and burning sensation indicatesthe onset of a number of vaginal infections. When the harmful bacteria outnumber the goodbacteria in the vagina, the imbalance manifests itself through the physical symptom of itchingand burning. A certain amount of yeast is essential toward off harmful bacteria in the vaginal area. However, an overproduction of yeast can resultin a yeast infection, causing symptoms that include itching and burning.
An inflammatory sensation and itching withoutany foul odor emanating from the vagina are signs of a yeast infection, according to a2004 study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association. Itching can also be a reaction to chemicalsor ingredients in soaps, creams, contraceptive foams and prepackaged douching mixtures. These mixtures can alter the bacterial balanceand acidity of the vagina that protect it against infections. 2.
