The vagina is incredibly complex, but overproduction of a fungus known as fungus candida at the opening of or inside the vagina can lead to yeast infections. Yeast infections are incredibly common, and symptoms typically include inflammation and irritation of the vulva, itching, and thick, white, unusual discharge that resembles cottage cheese.
While we do not require testing prior to the treatment, we do recommend that our patients get tested in case treatment is not effective. All of our consultation and treatment services are completely confidential.
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an incredibly common condition. It’s caused when bacteria from the urethra reach the bladder and cause an infection. For this reason, it’s also known as a bladder infection or cystitis. UTIs affect some women more than others, especially those with shorter urethras.
We are unable to treat patients with severe symptoms and indicators of a progressively spreading infection, including fever, debilitating pain, vomiting, and other signs. We also recommend that expecting and nursing mothers and those with preexisting kidney or bladder conditions also seek more specialized in-person treatment or emergency care.
Oral contraception (birth control) offers women a preventive measure against unplanned pregnancy; however, unlike condoms (male contraceptives), it does not protect against STDs, STIs, or HIV. This type of oral contraception is not recommended for women with a history of blood clots because they may include cardiovascular side-effects or for women who smoke.
Vaginas are home to micro-organisms, including certain healthy bacteria. But when there is an increase in the production of these bacteria, it causes bacterial vaginosis and vaginitis (BV), both of which are common conditions. These conditions may also be responsible for causing excessive or abnormal vaginal discharge, a fishy smell that is more noticeable after intercourse and during menstruation.
