Does bacterial vaginosis cause bad odour from the nose?

No. Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common vaginal infection in women ages 15-44. It is an infection caused when there is an imbalance of “good” and “harmful” bacteria that are normally found in a woman's vagina. It does not cause bad odors from the nose. You may have a chronic sinus / upper respiratory infection. Best to consult with an ENT.

My doctor talked over my head. We are confused. What is bacterial vaginosis?

Imbalance. All healthy women have a mix of bacteria & some yeast in the vagina.

BV. Simply put, an overgrowth of the normal vaginal bacteria. It is not dangerous, easy to treat, and symptoms are usually vag discharge, itching, and odor. If pregnant, treatment is needed because it can lead to early delivery or early rupture of amniotic membranes. Flagyl is a good treatment in pills or vaginal cream. (pills if you're pregnant).

Was taking Metronidazole for bacterial vaginosis but it caused severe itching and a foul odour. Does it mean I have a yeast fungal infection instead?

Maybe, probably not. Yeast infections cause itching but usually not odor. Probably the odor is from the BV itself, even if first noticed after starting treatment. But regardless of odor, the itching could indicate a yeast infection. Allergy to metronidazole unlikely but possible. You also need to be checked for other STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomonas if not yet done. Discuss with your doctor or clinic. Read more...

I have recurrent bacterial vaginosis, I have used metradonizole in the past, it clears the odour for a month or so but it returns?

U need vag cultures. And an ultrasound and possibly an endometrial bx to make sure it is not coming from your endometrium, u should get on a multi-vitamin and acidlphilus pills or probiotics as these can help prevent infection, and u need to try to keep that area dry meaning changing sweaty clothes after working out and do not wear tight fitting clothes and u may need a differnet med next time like Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) vaginal.
