You’re not alone. In fact, vaginitis is so common, nearly every woman experiences it in some form at least once in her life. Most of the infections referred to as vaginitis are caused by a change in the balance of bacteria in the vagina. Factors affecting the balance include sex, antibiotics, tight pants, damp underpants or swimwear, diet, birth control, douches/soaps, vaginal sprays, lubricants, and pregnancy.
Our medical team specializes in providing gentle, compassionate care for women. The sooner you schedule your appointment, the sooner you’ll feel better.
Treatment of vaginitis may include Sitz baths (which can be purchased at your local pharmacy) and following proper toilet and hygiene techniques. Many women assume vaginal symptoms are the result of a sexually transmitted disease (STD), which is often NOT the case. A patient’s idea of vaginal normality may be inaccurate and result in increased or unnecessary treatment seeking.
