What is Vaginitis?

How does Vaginitis occur? 

Vaginitis is common, especially in women in their years of reproduction. Vaginitis occurs when there is a change in bacteria or yeast that can be found in your vagina. There are different types of Vaginitis, and they have different symptoms, causes, and treatments as well. 

What are some symptoms of Vaginitis? 

Some of the symptoms of Vaginitis consist of gray or white vaginal discharge. Yeast infections also produce discharge from the vagina. Yeast infections can tend to cause the vagina and vulva to become itchy and red. If you have trichomoniasis, then you may not experience any symptoms at all 

What are the treatments for Vaginitis? 

The treatment can vary depending on which Vaginitis you have. BV is treatable with just antibiotics. Yeast infections are usually treated with cream or with medicine that you put inside your vagina. With Trichomoniasis only a single-dose antibiotic is usually needed.

If you are experiencing any of Vaginitis symptoms it is vital to contact a health-care provider to diagnose your symptoms so you can be treated immediately.
