Vaginal Disorders

Many of the vaginal disorders are considered infectious. Candidal infection is quite common and most women will have at least one yeast infection in their lifetime. It is a fungal infection characterized by thick white discharge and very often with profound itchiness and discomfort.

Other infectious disorders include bacterial vaginosis and trichomoniasis. Bacterial vaginosis is characterized by thin milky white discharge which may have a fishy odor. Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection that is caused by a parasite and may present with painful intercourse and foul smelling discharge.

Patients often self-medicate with over-the-counter medications which may not necessarily be treating the correct infections. Seek medical care if you are having inflammation or discharge from the vagina which is causing troublesome symptoms.
