Vaginitis


 

An inflammation of a woman’s vagina is called vaginitis. There are many different reasons for vaginitis, but the most common reasons are bacterial vaginosis, Candidiasis (yeast infection), and Trichomonas. Please note that a small amount of clear or cloudy white vaginal discharge is normal, and it increases during midcycle. The symptoms usually include abnormal discharge, burning, itching, foul-smelling discharge, and vaginal pain. Your doctor most likely can diagnose the type of vaginitis you have by pelvic exam and taking a vaginal sample to review under microscope. There might be need for vaginal cultures, or additional testing as well. Most cases of vaginitis are treated by a short course of medical treatment. In order to decrease your chance of getting vaginitis do not use feminine hygiene sprays or scented deodorant tampons, do not douche (it is better to let the vagina cleanse itself), thoroughly clean diaphragms, cervical caps, and spermicide applicators after each use, and use condoms during sex. Use plain warm water to clean the vulva, as soaps and detergents can change the normal balance of organisms inside the vagina.
