How To Recognize Yeast Infections, Trichomoniasis, and Bacterial Vaginosis
Most women experience vaginal problems at some point in their life. The three common vaginal issues women deal with are vaginal yeast infections, trichomoniasis, and bacterial vaginosis.
Vaginal Yeast Infections
Yeast is the most common cause of vaginal infection. This type of infection is caused . a fungus and affects the v**ina and the surrounding vulvar area. Three out of four women have at least one vaginal yeast infection during their lifetimes.
The symptoms of vaginal yeast infections include itching; a thick, white vaginal discharge that may look like cottage cheese; pain during s*xual intercourse; redness; burning; soreness; swelling; and general vaginal irritation. Not every woman experiences all of these symptoms.
Some women experience frequent yeast infections, so they are familiar with the symptoms and the course of treatment recommended for them. But if this is the first time you are having such symptoms, it’s important to see your doctor in order to get a formal diagnosis and rule out other possibilities. You don’t want to begin treating yourself when there’s a chance your symptoms could indicate something else entirely.
Trichomoniasis is the most common curable sexually transmitted infection (STI). The time between exposure to trichomoniasis and the onset of symptoms can be anywhere from five to 28 days. While some women don’t experience any symptoms, other women have symptoms such as a yellowish-greenish vaginal discharge, a foul vaginal odor, pain during s*xual intercourse, pain during urination, vaginal itching and general irritation and, in rare cases, pelvic pain.
If you suspect you may have trichomoniasis, you should discontinue s*xual intercourse and see your doctor immediately. If your doctor diagnoses trichomoniasis, your s*xual partner(s) should be diagnosed and receive treatment if necessary. s*xual intercourse should not resume until both you and your partner are treated and symptom-free.
Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common cause of vaginal discharge in women during their reproductive years. It is not an infection. Rather, BV develops when the normal balance of bacteria that colonize in the v**ina gets thrown off . overgrowth. While there is not a definitive answer about what causes BV, a few factors are known to raise your risk of contracting it, including having a new or multiple s*xual partners, using vaginal douches, having an intrauterine device (IUD), and failure to practice safe s*x . not using a condom during every act of s*xual intercourse.
The most common symptom of BV is a fish-like vaginal odor, as well as an abnormal vaginal discharge that is white or gray and that can be either watery or foamy.
