Can vaginitis be prevented?
Vaginitis due to STDs can be prevented by practicing safe sex or abstinence.
It is not possible to prevent all cases of yeast infection or bacterial
vaginosis. Attention to hygiene practices and avoiding spread of fecal material
to the vagina may help prevent vaginitis in young girls.
