Symptoms of Vaginal Infection

Vaginal Infection
An infection in your intimate area could manifest with several symptoms, either individually or even all together. In order to identify a vaginal infection, it is important to understand its symptoms correctly and seek professional help immediately.
Vaginal Secretion
Grey, Yellow or Yellow-Green Vaginal Secretion
Vaginal discharge is a normal phenomenon. If you are producing a transparent or white vaginal fluid, your vagina is healthy. However, if your vaginal fluid is grey, yellow or yellow-green, and/or is thick, or thin and foamy, then you have a vaginal infection.

Normal vaginal secretion has important functions: it acts as an effective lubricant during sex, and as an essential part of the vagina’s natural defense cycle and its well-balanced environment. Abnormal vaginal secretion is a visible effect of the harmful bacteria present in the vagina.
Bad Small
Bad Smell
Along with color changes in the vaginal secretion, a rotten fish-like smell is a clear indicator of vaginal infection. The smell may vary from a mild stench to an extremely strong odor, depending on the seriousness of the vagina’s condition.
Itching, Swelling and Burning Pain
Itching, Swelling and Burning Pain
Bacterial infection causes itching, swelling, soreness, and burning pain in the vagina.

If you have any or all of the symptoms of vaginal infection, do not worry because there are ways to cure it.

If you don’t have vaginal infection, do keep on with proper feminine hygiene because that’s the best way of protecting yourself.
