Are you experiencing vaginal itching, pain, or other discomfort? It could be a vaginal infection.

Medication, contraception, sexual activity, and more can make your vagina feel uncomfortable or cause changes in the smell and appearance of discharge, signaling a vaginal infection, sometimes called vaginitis. 

Most often, infections are triggered by bacteria, fungus, or irritants from soap or contraceptives.  learn more about a few of the most common types of vaginal infections and symptoms here. 

Yeast infections

Yeast infections might be the most well-known vaginal infection. A yeast infection develops because of fungus overgrowth in your vagina.

The most common symptom of a yeast infection are;

  • a vaginal discharge that is typically thick,

  • odorless, and

  • whitish-gray in color. The discharge has been described as having a cottage-cheese-like consistency.

  • Irritation and burning

  • Pain during sexual intercourse

  • Pain or burning during urination

  • Redness, irritation, or soreness of the vagina or vulva in women; swelling of the vagina

Bacterial vaginosis

Your vagina naturally has bacteria. If one type of bacteria begins to grow too much, it upsets the balance. and you might develop a bacterial infection called bacterial vaginosis. It can be triggered by having several sex partners or a new partner, but it also affects women who aren’t sexually active.

some women with bacterial vaginosis have no signs or symptoms at all. When symptoms do occur, the most common include:

  • An abnormal amount of vaginal discharge

  • The vaginal discharge is thin and grayish white.

  • Vaginal odor (foul-smelling or unpleasant fishy odor)

  • The vaginal discharge and odor are often more noticeable after sexual intercourse.

  • Pain with sexual intercourse or urination (rare symptoms).

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

Certain vaginal infections are transmitted through sexual intercourse. If you have unprotected sex with someone who has an STI, you can contract it. Trichomoniasis is one of the most common STIs affecting both women and men, and symptoms can mimic those of other vaginal infections.

  • unusual discharge from the vagina, penis or anus

  • pain when peeing

  • lumps or skin growths around the genitals or anus

What causes vaginal infections?

Vaginal infections can have several causes. common causes of vaginal infections include:

  • Bacterial infections. Certain bacteria are commonly found in your vagina. An overgrowth of these bacteria can cause bacterial vaginosis.

  • Yeast infections. Yeast infections are usually caused by a fungus called Candida albicans. Many things, including antibiotics, can reduce the number of antifungal bacteria in your vagina. This reduction can lead to an overgrowth of fungi and cause an infection.

  • Trichomoniasis. This vaginal infection is caused by a protozoan parasite that can be contracted through sexual intercourse.

  • Vaginal atrophy. This condition commonly occurs after menopause. It can also develop during other times in your life when your estrogen levels decline, such as while breastfeeding. Reduced hormone levels can cause vaginal thinning and dryness These can lead to vaginal inflammation.

  • Irritants. Soaps, body washes, perfumes, and vaginal contraceptives can all irritate your vagina. This can cause inflammation. Tight-fitting clothes may also cause heat rashes that irritate your vagina.


There are many other type of infections, most of which if not properly treated when the symptoms becomes obvious can lead to further complications like infertility, kidney disease or liver / heart issue.
