Dear Red Hot Mamas,
What are the symptoms of vaginitis? I ask this as my nurse practitioner says I have this condition.
Thank you for all your help.
Problems with the vagina are quite common. The symptoms associated with vaginitis are:
- Vaginal discharge
- Unpleasant vaginal odor
- Pain during intercourse
You may have all the symptoms or just one or two.
There are some self-help measures which you can take to include:
- Avoiding scented products (shower/bath products; vaginal deodorants; scented sanitary protection)
- Wearing cotton underwear and loose clothing
- Keeping yourself dry and clean
Your practitioner may also discuss prescribed treatment options which are available to treat this condition.
