Vaginal Infection Treatment

Some vaginal infections are transmitted through sexual contact. But many other infections (like yeast infections) are not necessarily caused by sexual contact.

Vaginitis is an inflammation of the vagina. It is often caused by vaginal infections that create discharge, odor, irritation, or itching.

The important thing is to recognize the symptoms if you develop a vaginal infection and then see your healthcare provider for precise testing.

Vaginal Infection Treatment

Vaginitis is an inflammation of the vagina. It is often caused by vaginal infections that create discharge, odor, irritation, or itching. It isn’t easy to diagnose because vaginitis has many causes. Women can use a variety of over-the-counter medications to treat the itching, discharge, and discomfort of these conditions.

Some vaginal infections are transmitted through sexual contact. But many other infections (like yeast infections) are not necessarily caused by sexual contact. Vaginitis means inflammation and can often be caused by infections. Vaginitis can also be due to hormonal changes (especially when a woman goes through menopause) or trauma in young girls. Some infections are associated with more severe diseases.

Three types of vaginal infections are the most common. Their causes are quite different, but their signs and symptoms are similar. Treatments of the three conditions vary.

  • Bacterial vaginosis
  • Vaginal yeast infection
  • Trichomoniasis

Many women wrongly think they have a yeast infection and decide to treat themselves. But these women might have a similar vaginal infection that will not respond to self-treatment and over-the-counter yeast medications. A study by the American Sexual Health Association reported that 62 percent of women mistake bacterial vaginosis for a yeast infection before diagnosis. The important thing is to recognize the symptoms if you develop a vaginal infection and then see your healthcare provider for precise testing. This will ensure you get the most appropriate and effective treatment right away.

What Our Patients Say

Dr. Kim was amazing. Took his time to educate me, made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions. The entire staff is amazing! The scheduling coordinator went above and beyond to get my appointments lined up and scheduled as soon as possible. My nurse was amazing as well. Highly recommend this office!

Meghan Groepler patient

What an exceptional experience! I have never been to a nicer medical office. Ever! I was let called in after a second of completing my check in and everyone was so very nice. I wish i knew the name of the assistant that answered all our questions, she was very nice and informative. Don’t hesitate ladies!

Alaa Fahem patient

The staff and everyone I met on the care team were extremely warm, kind, and knowledgeable. Although visit times are short, they made sure to explain everything thoroughly and made sure I understood. Even though they spoke quickly (lots of info to share in a short 15 minute slot) I never felt rushed or dismissed. I highly recommend this location and especially Dawn.
