Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

Your vaginal discharge is bacterial vaginosis.

It occurs when the there is a bacterial imbalance in the vaginal flora.

It can be easily treated with either oral or topical antibiotics which need to be prescribed by your doctor.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating (bonus appreciated) as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!
