Conditions, Women's Health Services
Vaginal infections are a common occurrence in women’s lives, but they need not be a cause for undue distress. The common cause for vaginosis is change in vaginal pH and microbiome. This can happen due the use of wrong products, certain chronic diseases like Diabetes mellitus, or after antibiotic use.
At Zest Clinic, we understand the discomfort and anxiety that comes with these infections, and we’re here to help you navigate your way to recovery.
Common Vaginal Infections
There are several types of vaginal infections, the most prevalent being Bacterial Vaginosis (BV), Yeast Infections, and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Trichomoniasis, and Human Papillomavirus (HPV).
Symptoms to Watch For
While symptoms may vary depending on the type of infection, common signs include unusual vaginal discharge, itching or burning in the vaginal area, discomfort during intercourse, and pelvic pain. If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s crucial to seek medical attention promptly.
What to Expect
During your first visit, our professional and empathetic team will guide you through a comprehensive health history questionnaire to understand your symptoms better. This will be followed by a physical examination, which may include a pelvic exam, to identify any physical signs of infection.
