I think I have Thrush or Bacterial Vaginosis

If your current symptoms appear to be the same as described for thrush and BV, and you have had no recent change in sexual partner then you can buy treatment from the pharmacy or a prescription from your GP.

 

Bacterial Vaginosis:

Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is the most common cause of unusual vaginal discharge. One in three people with a vagina get it at some point in their lives. People who have a penis don’t get Bacterial Vaginosis.

It's not a sexually transmitted infection and for many people, Bacterial Vaginosis goes away by itself.

Thrush:

Thrush is an infection caused by a yeast fungus.

It's not a sexually transmitted infection but can sometimes develop after you've had sex. It can develop in the vagina and on the genitals.

It's a very common cause of unusual vaginal discharge – 3 out of 4 people with a vagina will have thrush at some point in their lives.

It’s unusual for people who have a penis to get thrush.
