  What is Vaginitis?
 

Vaginitis is described medically as an irritation or inflammation of vagina. Vaginitis (Shweta Pradara) is a common disease affecting millions of women each year. If left untreated it can lead to various complications. The current medical therapy may temporarily reduce infection but tend to disrupt the normal vaginal flora or cause recurrent episodes. Hence herbal therapy for the treatment of vaginitis is gaining popularity an account of its reduced side effects and restoration of normal vaginal flora.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Vaginal Candidiasis (VC)

Yeast infection of the vagina is what most women think of when they hear the term "Vaginitis". Since yeast is normal in a woman's vagina, what makes it cause an infection? Usually this happens due to a change in the delicate balance in the woman's body system. For example a woman may take an antibiotic to treat her urinary tract infection but the antibiotic kills her "friendly" bacteria which normally keep the yeast in leash. As a result yeast overgrows and causes infection. Other factors which upset the delicate balance include pregnancy which changes the hormone levels and diabetes which allows too much sugar in the urine and vagina, high estrogen contraceptive, thyroid disorder and corticosteroid therapy. Normal causative organism is Candida albicans.

It is estimated that 75% of women suffer from this disease at some point of time during their reproductive period and 5% -8% have recurrent episodes. Approximately 3 million women in US have recurrent Candida infection. The prevalence of VC is expected to raise due to the growing number of non-C albicans species (Which are immune to antifungal medication) who have wide spread antifungal resistance.

BV and VC contribute more to the HIV epidemic than previously thought.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

How to treat Vaginitis?

A patient is examined in the doctor's office and a specimen of the vaginal discharge is collected. It is sent to Pathology laboratory for identification of the causative organism. Treatment is then prescribed depending upon the lab report.

Since the causative organisms of the vaginitis are different, it naturally follows that the treatment needs to be specific to the cause. Different medicines are needed to treat different infections. A drug that is appropriate for the treatment of yeast infection is not effective against bacterial infection. Often there are mixed infection which is more bothersome from the point of treatment. Sometimes a clinician finds frank vaginal discharge on vaginal examination but the vaginal smear shows normal vaginal flora. Conversely, a woman may not present any symptoms at all, but the vaginal smear shows evidence of infection.
