solutions for vaginitis in york
Vaginitis is an extremely common inflammation of the vagina experienced by up to one-third of all adult women. It is most common in teens and adult women up to 75 years of age. The condition is usually caused by a change in your internal vaginal bacteria (bacterial vaginosis or BV), yeast infection or reduced vaginal bacteria after menopause.
Vaginitis symptoms include unusual discharge, itching, irritation, painful urination and pain during intercourse. We typically treat vaginitis with medication in pill or cream form that focuses on addressing the underlying cause.
There are several factors that can change the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina and lead to vaginitis. These include the following:
- Antibiotic use
- Hormonal changes from pregnancy, breastfeeding or menopause
- Use of spermicides
- Sexual intercourse (especially with a new partner)
- Infection (yeast infection or urinary tract infection)
