Uncover the often unspoken truth about vaginal infection.

When it comes to topics about sex or sexual diseases, women often hold back from an open discussion. Most women feel very awkward discussing such issues, even with close family and friends. Without honest exchanges among people on sexual matters, including that on vaginal diseases, more and more women will suffer silently.

Most women, and even young teenage girls, will suffer an infection in their genital region at least once in their lifetime. But research reveals that many women do not fully understand these conditions and they often go untreated.

As a confident and aware woman, you shouldn't be afraid to ask questions about your intimate health. Be aware and be safe from vaginal infections while you can.

Vaginal infection is scientifically termed as Vaginitis, an inflammation of the vagina characterized by swelling, redness, heat, pain, and an abnormal vaginal discharge. Causes of such infection are certain bacteria, fungi and protozoans which deposit huge amounts of waste materials that irritate the vagina and the vulva or intimate area (area around vagina).

There are many types of vaginal infections, each causing different kinds of contaminated vaginal discharges and other symptoms, such as swelling, bad-odor, and itching.

Vaginitis or vaginal infection occurs when the normal acid-alkaline balance of the vagina is upset resulting in the excessive reproduction of harmful infection-causing bacteria.
