What is vaginitis?
Vaginitis, also called vulvovaginitis, is an inflammation of the vagina and possibly, the vulva. Vaginitis affects women of all ages but is most common during the reproductive years.
The most common types of vaginitis are:
Bacterial vaginosis: results from a change of the normal bacteria found in your vagina to overgrowth of other organisms
Yeast infections: results from an overgrowth of yeast (Candida) in the vagina
Trichomoniasis: a non viral sexually transmitted infection which is caused by a parasite and spread through sex
Common symptoms include change in color, order, or amount of vaginal discharge, vaginal itching or irritation, pain during intercourse, painful urination, and light vaginal bleeding or spotting.
Get the Treatment you Need
Several different prescription-only antibiotics can be used to treat bacterial vaginosis. They can be taken by mouth or inserted into the vagina as a cream, gel, or suppository.
Prescription-only anti-fungal medications taken by mouth or over-the-counter or prescription gels or creams inserted into the vagina treat vaginal yeast infections.
Trichomoniasis usually is treated with a single dose of an antibiotic by mouth. Sexual partners must be treated to prevent the infection from recurring.
