According to Dr. Rania Ibrahim, vaginal infections often cause infection or swelling of the vaginal area, which can ultimately be passed between sexual partners during sexual intercourse. Bacteria and yeast – as well as some of the chemicals found in various creams and sprays – are often at the root of these conditions.
Your ObGyn will determine the source of your vaginal infection by reviewing the symptoms you’re experiencing, some of which include:
- Burning while urinating;
- Vaginal itching;
- Irregular vaginal discharge accompanied by an unpleasant odor and odd color;
- Pain during sexual intercourse.
The first step to proper treatment of vaginal infections is a correct diagnosis. And because comparable symptoms can be found in different forms of vaginitis, this is not always an easy task.
In many cases, women incorrectly assume they have a “yeast infection” and choose to self medicate when, in reality, they have a vaginal infection that won’t be responsive to self-treatment with non-prescription drugs.
Because different kinds of vaginal infections have various causes, the treatment you’re given needs to be precisely planned for the type of the infection you’re battling. So, it’s recommended that you make an appointment with your ObGyn before self-treating any type of vaginal infection.
