If you’re not sure whether you have BV or thrush just from looking at lists of symptoms there are a couple of other things you can consider.
If you’re feeling sore, itchy, or experience a burning sensation, you probably have thrush rather than BV.
BV doesn’t typically cause any pain or irritation, whereas thrush is particularly noticeable because of those irritating symptoms.
If your vaginal discharge is greyish or watery you’re probably dealing with BV, but if it’s white and looks a bit like cottage cheese you’re dealing with thrush.
If you’re noticing a strong fishy smell, then you probably have BV, as thrush rarely causes a strong smell.
No matter what you’re dealing with, get yourself to a doctor for a formal diagnosis so you know that you’re getting the right treatment for your infection.
