Infections and Vulva Care

Published by

Various things can go wrong with the vagina causing a woman pain and uncomfort. The most common are the normal infections. The vagina is a warm moist place that needs the exact pH balance and a healthy eco system of balanced bacteria.

Three common infections of the vulva are:

  • Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) – Excessive white-grey milky secretion, fishy smell, mild to severe vaginal itching and redness. Nasty smell after sex or during menstruation.
  • Yeast Invection – Thick chunky curd-like (cottage cheese like) secretion, no odor or slight yeasty smell, Vaginal itching and redness, irritation and intense burning
  • Trichomoniasis – Profuse gray or green/yellow secretion, no odor or foul fishy smell, burning, itching and redness, Soreness of the vulva and vagina

All three these infections are recognized by uncommon vaginal secretions and what these secretions does to the vagina and vulva.

The first signs of an infection is normally a nasty smell, a strange secretion and some itching and burning in the vulva and vagina. In general this will make you feel miserable.
