3 Common Vaginal Problems
Do you ever think about what vaginal problems are common and which ones aren't common?
The 3 most common vaginal problems are:
1) Yeast Infections
2) Bacterial Vaginosis
Three out of four women will experience yeast infections at some point in their life, nearly half of the women will experience two or more infections, so you see it is very common. Yeast Infections are caused by an overgrowth of candida.
Candida normally lives inside the body (in places such as the mouth, throat, gut, and vagina) and on the skin in small amounts without causing any problems. However, some factors—such as antibiotics, pregnancy, uncontrolled diabetes, or a weakened immune system (even if just from stress)—can upset the balance of bacteria in the vagina, causing the yeast to multiply.1 Without intervention, yeast thrives due to the vagina's wet, warm accommodations.
Trichomoniasis is caused by a parasite and spread through unprotected sex. It's the most common curable STI and can be spread even when you have no symptoms. Though infection is more common in women, men can get it too. The time between exposure to trichomoniasis and the onset of symptoms can be anywhere from five to 28 days. Please see your doctor if you are experiencing any of these...
Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is the most common cause of vaginal discharge in women during their reproductive years. BV typically occurs when there is more harm than good bacteria in the vagina. Specifically, BV develops when the normal balance of Lactobacillus bacteria that colonize in the vagina gets thrown off by an overgrowth of other bacteria.
This is great information, to let us know that we are not alone when it comes to vaginal issues, they are very common and nothing to be embarrassed about.
If you are experiencing any of these, the best thing to do is visit your physician so they can direct you in the right direction to get help.
