Multiple: Std's or sexually transmitted diseases, are diseases transmitted through sexual contact. Examples are gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, hiv, hepatitis c, genital warts, and genital herpes. Bacterial vaginosis is a condition caused by an overabundance of anaerobic bacteria in the vagina. Symptoms can include a watery, foul or fishy smelling discharge and/or vaginal irritation.

A 33-year-old member asked:

How can I know if I have bacterial vaginosis or an STD?

By exam and testing: You visit a health professional or clinic who understands STDs and genital infections. They will examine you and do some tests to find out. Your symptoms may be a clue: if you have a strong vaginal odor (especially if it smells fishy), then BV is likely. Most STDs don't cause discharge with odor.
