In brief: Symptoms gone?

The symptoms of bacterial vaginosis, such as a fishy vaginal odor and increased discharge, should disappear after proper treatment to the infection.
Be sure you have completed all of your antibiotics as prescribed. If you are still experiencing symptoms, you might consider seeing your doctor where you can be retested for cure.

In brief: BV

Bacterial vaginosis or BV usually causes an abnormally strong odor that is accentuated by menstrual blood or seminal fluid.
It also manifests as a whitish, yellowish homogenous discharge. If you do not have these signs and symptoms you probably are free of the condition. There is also a test that can be done in a doctor's office.
