What are vaginal infections?

Vaginitis and vaginosis is an infection of the vagina or vulva that can cause discomfort, itching and vaginal discharge.

Different types of vaginal infections

  • Yeast infection

    The vagina is infected with a yeast called Candida, usually Candida albicans, resulting in a yeast infection called candidiasis.

  • Bacterial vaginosis

    Bacterial vaginosis is a vaginal infection that occurs when the balance of vaginal bacteria is disturbed.

  • Trichomonas vaginitis

    A vaginal infection caused by Trichomonas vaginalis protozoa usually transmitted sexually.

Signs & Symptoms

When suffering from yeast vaginitis, you may experience some typical symptoms of this type of infection.

  • redness of the vulva or vagina;

  • itching;

  • irritation or burning;

  • pain during urination or sexual intercourse;

  • a whitish, odourless discharge.

Some signs and symptoms may suggest the presence of vaginal inflammation not caused by a yeast infection. For example:
