Common Types of Vaginitis You should know! – GetCareMD

Vaginitis, in common words, is the inflammation of the vagina and is usually a result of an infection. Patients of vaginitis report having an unusual discharge, pain, or a burning sensation. One-third of women of all ages suffer from one type of vaginitis at least once in their lives. Vaginitis can stem from a number of causes like certain bacteria, viruses, or yeast in creams, body sprays, condoms, soaps, and lubricants. In some cases, it is caused by gonorrhea, chlamydia, and irritation from tampons. You can easily get treated for vaginitis by getting a vaginitis consultation online. All you need to do is book an online appointment with one of the healthcare specialists at GetCare MD and get a doctor’s prescription online. The medication can be arranged to be delivered to your doorstep so you don’t have to leave your home at all.

The most common types of vaginitis are:

  • Bacterial Vaginosis:

Caused by an imbalance of bacterial growth in the vagina, Bacterial Vaginosis is the most common type of vaginitis. Patients of Bacterial Vaginosis experience a runny vaginal discharge with an odd smell. This type of vaginitis can be treated with prescription antibiotics that you can get by booking an online consultation for bacterial vaginitis with GetCareMD.

  • Candida Albicans or Yeast Infection:

Vaginal yeast infection is caused by a specific type of fungus called ‘Candida’. This fungus is always present in the vagina in a particular amount. Infection occurs when something triggers this balance and causes the yeast to grow in abnormal amounts.  The triggers may be an antibiotic taken to treat some other disease, pregnancy, or a generally weak immune system. Common symptoms of yeast infection are redness and itching in the vagina and pain during intercourse or urination.

You can get online consultations for vaginal yeast infection with one of our highly experienced doctors at GetCareMD. The doctor will ask you specific questions about your symptoms and will provide you with an online consultation prescription.

  • Trichomonas vaginalis:

Trichomonas Vaginalis is caused by a one-celled parasite called Trichomonas Vaginalis. It is an STD and is caused when one person having Trichomonas has sex with another person. Men usually do not experience any symptoms of Trichomonas and this type of vaginitis is often diagnosed when a woman starts developing symptoms like lower abdominal pain, bleeding after sex, or a greenish discharge from the vagina.
