Vaginal Infections

Dr.David-Fong Vaginal Infection

Understanding Vaginal Discharge

Vaginal discharge stands out as one of the most prevalent concerns reported in gynecological consultations, ranking among the top three presenting complaints. This symptom often indicates lower genital tract inflammation, with the leading causes encompassing vulvovaginal candidiasis (commonly known as yeast infections), bacterial vaginosis, trichomonal infections, bacterial vaginitis, and chemical vulvovaginitis. The silver lining lies in the fact that a skilled gynecologist can adeptly diagnose these conditions. Employing a combination of patient history, physical examination, and office laboratory tests, including a saline wet mount of the discharge and measurement of vaginal acidity (pH level), allows for a precise diagnosis.

Beyond the Common Causes of Vaginal Discharge

Sexually transmitted infections, such as herpes, Chlamydia, and gonorrhea, may also manifest with abnormal vaginal discharge. Additionally, retained foreign bodies can contribute to this symptom. The expertise of a gynecologist becomes paramount in unraveling the complexity of these conditions, ensuring accurate identification and tailored management strategies.
