What are the Symptoms of Vaginal Infections other than STD? What are the types of vaginal infections?

This is tricky as some vaginal infections may appear as STD. Thus, creating a panic situation, unnecessarily. There are mainly three types of vaginal infections which may appear as STDs. The only way to be sure if it is actually an STD or an injection is to get tested for STD near you. But there are some ways you can possibly detect the difference between the two. So lets get started.

The types of vaginal infections are as follows

  • Vaginitis
  • Trichomoniasis
  • Bacterial Vaginosis

Vaginitis

The Vaginitis is a medical term that is used to refer to any infection or inflammation of the vagina. The symptoms of vaginitis are common and most women will have at least one form of the Genesis in their lifetime. Even though the Genesis is so common, many women know little about it. The term yeast infection is what most women think of when they hear the word for vaginitis. However, a yeast infection is only one kind of vaginal infection. Vaginitis can be caused by several different organisms. Sometimes at the same time, as well as by hormonal changes, allergies or irritations.

The symptoms of vaginitis are as follows

  • A feeling of heat and fullness in the vagina
  • a dragging feeling in the Kamui
  • increased urinary frequency and vaginal discharge that is leukorrhea. The clear or a white secretion becomes pure orange and yellow.

The severity of leukorrhea depends upon the degree of bacterial infection. Abnormal vaginal discharge is the most common symptom in bacterial virginities. Mild irritation or burning of the vulva and vagina often without itching or redness. Thin watery discharge often with an unpleasant odor grayish white or yellow in color and heavier than usual. In yeast infection, odorless thick white discharge burning and itching sensation. Itching and or irritation of the genital region redness in the perineal area. The area between vagina and anal sphincter redness of the labia majora and labia minora. Sometimes redness in these areas can be hidden by pubic hair.


Bacterial Vaginosis

In Bacterial vaginosis, you may develop a greyish white foul-smelling discharge. The patient often described as fish-like may be more obvious after sexual intercourse. Yeast infections the main symptom is edging but you may have a white thick discharge that resembles cottage cheese.

This infection can cause a greenish yellow sometimes frothy discharge. Symptoms of a yeast infection associated with virginities. It may include whitish grey discharge that may be very thick or thin and watery. Itching burning and irritation of the vagina area, Itching, burning and irritation of the vulva area of skin around the vagina the symptoms may vary with the cause. Although most are characterized by a discharge, odor irritation and origin yeast infections involve genital etching and a thick white vagina discharged while bacterial vaginosis involves a thin grey vaginal discharge in a fishy odor.

Trichomoniasis

Trichomonas vagina infection, on the other hand, leads to genital itching, a vagina loader and a heavy vaginal discharge which may be yellow-grey or green in color. However, symptoms may not always be present or not always noticed. For example, nearly half of the women with clinical signs of bacterial vaginosis report no symptoms. Any woman can get vaginitis or inflammation of the vagina. The normal environment of the vagina is acidic which helps to prevent overgrowth of organisms that can cause vaginitis. When disruption of the lining occurs due to extreme stress or antibiotic use, women may develop vaginitis. There are different types of vaginitis the most common are yeast of a gen IDUs a bacterial infection called bacterial vaginosis.
