Vaginal Yeast Infection

Need an online consultation for vaginal yeast infection? Trust GetCareMD to provide it.

Learn more about the condition and how we can help treat it:

A vaginal yeast infection is a very common fungal infection that can affect as many as 3 out of 4 women. The yeast (fungus) responsible for this is called Candida Albicans.
The infection occurs when hormonal changes, medication, or immune system issues allow the Candida Albicans to grow excessively.

Vaginal yeast infection is also known as

  • Thrush
  • Candidal vaginitis
  • Vaginal candidiasis
  • Vulvovaginal candidiasis

During a test for vaginal yeast infection, a small sample of your vaginal discharge is examined for the presence of fungal culture.

While it’s not a prerequisite for scheduling a vaginal yeast infection consultation online, we urge you to get tested beforehand.

This will allow us to design the most effective treatment plan for you.

Symptoms of Vaginal Yeast Infection

The symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection vary in severity and include:

  • Irritation and itching in the vagina and the vulva (the outer part of female genitalia)
  • Burning, redness, and swelling of the vulva
  • Pain or discomfort during urination and intercourse
  • Vaginal pain, rashes, and soreness
  • Watery, abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Thick, odorless discharge that’s white in color and resembles cottage cheese

In your online consultation for vaginal yeast infection, your infection may be categorized as complicated if:

  • You find sores, tears, and cracks in the vaginal walls
  • Your other symptoms are extremely intense and painful
  • You have recurring yeast infections (four or more in a year)

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) – Women

Do you need an online consultation for UTI? The experts at GetCareMD are here to help.

Find out more about the condition and how we can treat it:

A UTI is an infection in your urinary system, which includes:

  • Kidneys
  • Ureters
  • Urinary bladder
  • Urethra

While a UTI may affect any of these organs, most infections are limited to the bladder and urethra.

Women are far more susceptible to UTIs than men.

If you have milder symptoms, consider setting up a UTI consultation online without delay.

However, if you have preexisting conditions or severe symptoms, seek in-person emergency treatment from your nearest hospital.

Symptoms of UTI

Generally, symptoms of UTIs include:

  • A constant need to urinate
  • Pain, discomfort, or a burning sensation while urinating
  • Urine that has a cloudy, opaque appearance
  • Urine that’s tinged with red or bright pink colors, indicating the presence of blood
  • Urine that has an abnormal or unusually strong smell
  • Pelvic pain and discomfort

If you’ve caught one or more of these symptoms, you should schedule an online consultation for UTI right away.

Birth Control

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.

Bacterial Vaginosis & Vaginitis

What is Vaginitis?

Like other areas of the body — such as the mouth and the gut — the vagina also has a complex ecosystem of bacteria that keep it healthy.
When the production of these bacteria is imbalanced or uncontrolled, it can cause a condition known as bacterial vaginitis. Bacterial vaginitis (BV) often causes itching, pain, and abnormal discharge.
There are the most commonly occurring types of BV:

  • Bacterial vaginosis: it occurs due to a lack of healthy bacteria and extensive growth of other microorganisms.
  • Vaginal yeast infections: they’re caused by a fungus known as Candida Albicans.
  • Trichomoniasis: it’s caused by a parasite and can be transmitted from one person to another during sexual intercourse.

You can obtain professional help by scheduling a vaginitis consultation online at GetCareMD.

Symptoms of Vaginitis

The typical symptoms of vaginitis include:

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge (look for changes in quantity, color, or odor)
  • Vaginal irritation or itching
  • Pain or discomfort during sex and urination
  • Vaginal bleeding or spotting

Any vaginal discharge can also offer clues about your vaginitis. Here’s what to look for:

  • Bacterial vaginosis: it can cause a foul-smelling, grayish-white discharge. Its odor may be termed as ‘fishy’ and could be more noticeable after sexual intercourse.
  • Yeast infection: also known as candidal vaginitis, it can be identified by persistent itching and the presence of a thick white discharge that resembles cottage cheese.
  • Trichomoniasis: it causes a greenish-yellow discharge that may or may not be frothy.

If you’ve observed one of these discharges, you should set up an online consultation for vaginitis right away.

Causes of Vaginitis

There are different causes for different kinds of vaginitis:

  • Bacterial vaginosis: it’s caused when the number of healthy vaginal bacteria (lactobacilli) is exceeded by the number of other bacteria (anaerobes).
  • While there’s a link between bacterial vaginosis and sex — for women with multiple sex partners or a new sex partner — remember that one doesn’t have to be sexually active to get it.
  • Yeast infections(candida vaginitis): they’re typically caused by Candida Albicans growing in uncontrolled quantities inside the vagina.
  • Trichomoniasis: it’s a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by a single-celled parasite called Trichomonas Vaginalis. This parasite enters your body during sexual intercourse with an infected person.
