In brief: Normal bacteria

Remember there are normal vaginal flora living in vagina, If no excessive discharge it can be normal, There is one that gives a fishy smell but can be normal,.
Be careful of excessive douching disturbing normal flora. Can do swab and send to lab to see if can assist with douche or supplements
