The symptoms can frequently be similar for both, but, typically, BV is associated with a foul fishy ordor, a watery discharge that comes and goes, and itching. A yeast infection generally does not have a distinct odor, but may have a thick discharge and itching associated with it. Many times, vaginal dryness is the first indication of a yeast infection.
