Vaginitis facts

  • Vaginitis is inflammation of the vagina.
  • Symptoms of vaginitis include vaginal pain or discomfort, itching, discharge, and odor. Pain with urination or during sexual intercourse is also common.
  • Vaginitis may be due to infections or non-infectious causes.
  • Infectious vaginitis may be due to bacteria, fungi, or the parasitic organism known as Trichomonas.
  • Infectious vaginitis should be treated with antibiotics.
  • Vaginitis can also be related to physical or chemical irritation of the vagina.
  • Some infectious causes of vaginitis are sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs), but not all vaginal infections are sexually-transmitted.
  • Vaginitis in pregnancy should be treated to avoid complications for mother and baby.

Comment from: Ella Lee, 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: December 12

I was diagnosed with vaginitis and I feel extremely painful in my vagina. I went to see a doctor, and they told me I need to do normal gynecological check-ups, and vaginal discharge check-ups. And not long after they told me that inflammation in my vagina is severe. And I decided to take some Fuyan pill. Not long after I recovered, I think this is amazing.

I take topiramate (Topamax) for preventing migraines. It has saved my life for that, but the side effects are horrible. The 2 most horrible side effects for me are loss of memory and vaginitis. I did not contract this sexually. I have been single and celibate for 18 years and counting. Prior to that I was a good girl too.
