Brief Answer:
Bacterial vaginosis likely.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

You are currently suffering from bacterial vaginosis (BV). It is mostly caused by an anaerobic organism, G.vaginalis. It can be associated with other vaginal infection like yeast infection etc.

Metronidazole or same categorical drug (like Tinidazole/ Secnidazole) is the treatment of choice to cure BV. It can be taken as a single dose.

In mixed vaginal infection, AFS kit (combination of Azithromycin, Fluconazole & Secnidazole) is quite effective.

Local application of Clindamycin gel is also helpful. In such cases, your sexual partner also needs complete course of treatment.

In this scenario, you must consult with a gynecologist regarding this for proper guidance through pelvic examination (with or without speculum), relevant investigation (like STD profile, vaginal swab test, complete hormone assay etc).

Take suggestive measures with supportive medication accordingly.

I hope this answers your query.


Wishing you good health.

Regards.
