Understanding Vaginal Infections

Vaginal infections are common conditions that can affect women of all ages. They occur when there is an imbalance in the naturally occurring bacteria and yeast in the vagina, leading to symptoms such as itching, burning, unusual discharge, and discomfort during urination or sexual intercourse. There are several types of vaginal infections, including:

  • Yeast Infections (Candidiasis): Caused by an overgrowth of the fungus Candida albicans, yeast infections are characterised by thick, white discharge, itching, and irritation.
  • Bacterial Vaginosis (BV): BV occurs when there is an imbalance of bacteria in the vagina, leading to symptoms such as thin, greyish-white discharge with a fishy odour, itching, and burning.
  • Trichomoniasis: This sexually transmitted infection (STI) is caused by the parasite Trichomonas vaginalis and can cause symptoms such as frothy, yellow-green discharge, itching, and irritation.
  • Other Infections: In addition to the above, other less common infections such as fungal infections and viral infections can also occur in the vaginal area.
