What is Vaginitis?

Vaginitis refers to infection or inflammation of the vagina. This includes the external vagina such as the opening and vaginal lips (vulva), or the inside of the vagina. Patients typically note vaginal irritation, itching or dryness. They may also note vaginal discharge, which may have a foul odor (smell). This condition is caused by infection or changes in the balance of healthy vaginal bacteria. It can be caused by sexually transmitted diseases, but can also be caused without sexual activity. Normal aging can also be a cause with patients after menopause at an increased risk for vaginal dryness and irritation.

Typical Symptoms of Vaginitis

  • Increased vaginal discharge that is smelly

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge e.g. in color, smell, or quantity

  • Increase in vaginal discharge

  • Itching around the genital area

  • Thick white vaginal discharge

  • Soiled gential area e.g. due to diarrhea or proloned tampon use

  • Been sexually active with multiple partners during the past 1 month

  • Yellow vaginal discharge

Doctor's Diagnostic Questionson Vaginitis

Your doctor may ask these questions to check for this disease:

  • Has the vaginal discharge odor worsened recently?

  • Have you noticed any changes in your vaginal discharge?

  • Have you had more vaginal discharge lately?

  • Do you have any vaginal itching?

  • Do you have a thick white discharge like cottage cheese or yogurt?

Treatmentof Vaginitis

Treatment of vaginitis depends on the cause. If there is an infection, antibiotics or anti-fungal medications may be prescribed. Occasionally steroid creams may be used if there is concern for a skin condition. If the irritation is secondary to low female hormones, estrogen cream may be prescribed
