What it Covers
How it Works
Diagnoses and treatment for vaginitis.
After an initial exam, our providers will help you determine the cause of your vaginitis symptoms and the best treatment options for you. Physicians refer to a variety of conditions as vaginitis if they cause infection or inflammation of the vagina.
Because there is such a variety of vaginitis types and causes, there are also a variety of treatment options we can consider. It usually isn’t easy to figure out what’s going on by yourself, we’re here to help.
Common kinds of vaginitis include:
Bacterial vaginosis, caused by an overgrowth of bacteria and characterized by a strong, unpleasant odor.
Candida, most commonly referred to as a yeast infection, caused by an overgrowth of the fungus candida.
Chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis, the most common STDs in women, are common causes of vaginitis.
Viral vaginitis is inflammation caused by a virus, such as herpes simplex virus, and is often accompanied by painful sores or warts.
There is also noninfectious vaginitis, often caused by an allergic reaction to products such as detergents, douches, fabric softeners, perfumed soaps, vaginal sprays, or spermicides.
