• 69228482[1]Always wear cotton underwear; avoid nylon and Lycra as much as possible, as they may trap air create breeding ground for yeast; never wear pantyhose without wearing cotton panties underneath.
  • Always use water-based lubricants when vaginal dryness is an issue, during sexual intercourse.
  • Always wipe from front to back after a bowel movement to prevent the yeast which normally inhabits the intestinal tract from being transferred to the vaginal area.
  • Yogurt or Probiotic supplements are very effective in helping cure yeast infections.  It's the new phenomenon in the health industry and becoming very popular in many over-the-counter yeast infection products.
  • One of the most effective ways to prevent yeast infections is to NOT use perfumed bath products or powders in the vaginal area, these can cause irritations which can lead to infection.
  • Don't use douches! Douches wash away the natural protective mucous of the vagina leaving the vagina more susceptible to yeast and other vaginal infections.
  • Never self-treat a yeast infection unless you have been previously diagnosed for a yeast infection by a healthcare professional.


69589703[1]Bacterial Vaginosis - Similar to a yeast infection, there is an overgrowth of bacteria, and the balance of the vaginal environment is upset when these bacteria occur in increased amounts. Recurrence of bacterial vaginosis is common and bacterial vaginosis can coexist with other vaginal infections. Women that have multiple partners or receive oral intercourse are at an increased risk of acquiring bacterial vaginosis.  Certain factors have been identified that increases the chances of developing BV.  These include multiple or new partners, intrauterine devices for contraception, recent antibiotic use, vaginal douching, and cigarette smoking.

Signs and Symptoms of bv bacterial vaginosis

  • Increased amount of discharge
  • Grey/white, thin, watery discharge
  • Foul/fishy odor with discharge
  • Increased odor to discharge immediately after intercourse

Nearly half of the women with bacterial vaginosis don't display any symptoms.

Treatment  how to treat bv Bacterial vaginosis

Common treatments include an oral antibiotic or a topical antibiotic cream. If you're unsure of your self-diagnosis, please see your doctor.

Trichomoniasis - This infection is caused by a one-celled protozoan organism. Trichomoniasis is almost always spread through sexual contact. However, the protozoan organism can survive for up to twenty-four hours in a moist environment, making wet towels or bathing suits possible instruments of transmission from someone with the infection.

Signs and Symptoms

Most men and some women don't display any symptoms, which may include:

  • Yellow/green, frothy, discharge
  • Foul odor with discharge
  • Increased amount of discharge
  • Inflammation of vulva/vagina
  • Increased frequency of urination
  • Itching


The treatment used is the oral antibiotic. It is recommended that both partners be treated at the same time to avoid recurrent infections. Partners should be treated even if they aren't displaying any symptoms.

Yeast Infection - There is normally a small amount of yeast (Candida albicans) present in the vagina. A yeast infection occurs when there is an overgrowth of yeast, often caused by a change in the pH balance of the vagina. Yeast infections are not usually sexually transmitted.

Some factors that may increase susceptibility to yeast infections

  • Increased stress
  • Use of oral contraceptives
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy
  • Use of antibiotics (protective bacteria are destroyed by antibiotics, allowing yeast overgrowth)

Signs and symptoms of yeast infections

  • Increased amount of discharge
  • White, clumpy (cottage cheese-like), discharge
  • Redness, itching, burning in vaginal/vulvar area

Treatment  how to treat yeast infections

Since yeast is normally present in the vagina, it's not possible to try to eliminate all yeast. Therefore, the goal of treatment is to reduce the overgrowth of yeast organisms and return the vagina to a healthy balance. Treatment consists of antifungal agents in the form of tablets, vaginal creams or suppositories. Over-the-counter treatments are available. However, if you are pregnant, always be sure to have any medications approved by a health care provider.
