There are primarily two kinds of Vaginitis that are sexually transmitted diseases:
(trick-oh-moe-nye-uh-sis), which is caused by a parasite. 7.6 million new cases a year. Sometimes called trich (trick).
- Vaginal yeast
Infection, which is a fungal disorder caused by an imbalance in the natural bacteria found in the vagina.
Primary Mode of Vaginitis Transmission:
- Having unprotected sex without a condom, or dental dam.
- Multiple sexual partners.
- Itching, burning, and swelling of vagina, external or internal.
- Frothy, yellow colored discharge, or infected looking discharge.
- Bad odor.
- Painful sexual intercourse.
How Vaginitis Is Treated:
If you have had unprotected sex, see a health care provider at once to get tested. STDs usually come in threes. Go to
Yeast Infection Remedy to learn more about yeast infections, which are usually the cause of most Vaginitis.
To help your doctor determine what is wrong:
- Do not have sex without a condom 24 hours before the exam.
- Do not douche, (not even with water) 24 hours before the exam.
- Do not use any vaginal sprays or creams 24 hours before the exam.
- Do not go to the doctor when you are having your period.
Because Vaginitis can be a symptom of other sexually transmitted diseases, your doctor may go ahead and order some more tests to make sure that you are not infected with other sexually transmitted diseases.
Whether or not this is a simple case of yeast, bacterial Vaginitis, or a more serious form of Vaginitis will depend upon the following factors:
Doctors usually prescribe some form of ketoconazole and as an anti-parasite, anti-fungal aid, to bring Vaginitis under control. Oftentimes, the doctor may want to see the sexual partner to make sure that his/her body is not harboring the bacterial, fungal or protozoan infection that may caused the Vaginitis in the first place. The two sexual partners will pass the Vaginitis infection back and forth, if they are not both treated.
