Vaginal Infection Treatment & Causes

Vaginal Infection Treatment
Serving Tarzana & Woodland Hills CA

vaginal infection causes, yeast infection
The vagina is a very sensitive reproductive organ that may sometimes become infected or inflamed. The medical term used to describe this phenomenon is known as “vaginitis”.

Potential Causes of Vaginal Infection

Vaginitis can result from vagina infection due to different organisms such as bacteria, yeast (i.e. yeast infection), or viruses. They may also be caused by reactions or irritants caused by chemicals including creams, sprays, or certain articles of clothing coming in to contact wit the area.

Yeast infections are not considered a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

Vaginal Infection Symptoms to Look For

If you suspect you may be suffering from vaginal infection, then you should look for these telltale signs before making an appointment with our Tarzana gynecologist:

The test is also used to confirm a successful vasectomy (the tubes conveying sperm from the testicles to the penis are cut and sealed as a form of permanent birth control).
  • Abnormal amount of smelly vaginal discharge
  • Burning sensation felt during urination
  • Itching on the outside of the vagina
  • Discomfort during intercourse
Keep in mind; some vaginal infections may not produce any symptoms. This is why it is encouraged to have a check-up with your gynecologist frequently. Diagnosis can be tricky.

Treatment for Vaginal Infection

Treatment is based on identification of the cause found through various tests that will be requested. Often times the use of antibiotics is used to kill off the organisms responsible for the problem. Vaginal suppositories may also be recommended as well as lifestyle changes to prevent further infection. Home care techniques may be implemented as suggested with Dr. Torbati. It is not recommended to try and treat vaginal infection at home on your own using natural ingredients or over-the-counter medications without first seeing a licensed gynecologist.

Dr. Torbati treats vaginal infection including yeast infection at his OB/GYN private practice located in Tarzana. Many of his patients also come from neighboring cities including Woodland Hills, Van Nuys, Encino, and Reseda.
