Vaginitis is a word for various disorders that cause inflammation or infection of the vagina. These can be caused by organisms like yeast, or by irritations from chemicals or sprays.
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common cause of vaginitis symptoms among women of childbearing age. BV reflects a change in the vaginal ecosystem. This imbalance, including pH changes, occurs when abnormal bacteria outnumber the normal ones. A change in sexual partners and douching may increase the risk of acquiring bacterial vaginosis.
Vaginal atrophy (also called atrophic vaginitis) is a condition where the lining of the vagina gets drier and thinner. This results in itching, burning and pain during sex, among other symptoms. The condition also includes urinary tract problems such as urinary tract infections (UTIs) and frequent urination.
Aerobic vaginitis (AV) is the name given in 2002 to a vaginal infectious entity which was not recognized as such before. It is characterized by abnormal (dysbiotic) vaginal microflora containing aerobic, enteric bacteria, variable levels of vaginal inflammation and deficient epithelial maturation.
Desquamative vaginitis is characterised by: Persistent or intermittent, blood-stained or yellow, profuse or sticky vaginal discharge. Painful intercourse ( dyspareunia) Itch ( pruritus vulvae) and/or burning ( vulvodynia ). Other symptoms may include pain on passing urine ( dysuria ), bleeding after intercourse, malodour and dryness.
