There is a possibility of various infections in the female reproductive system, two of which are mild infections related to bacterial and fungal vaginosis. These infections are very common and annoying. In this article, we will examine these two infections as well as how to treat them and the causes of them, stay with us.
Bacterial vaginosis is caused by the presence of a microbe called “Grandella vaginalis”, which is very abundant.
It may be transmitted through sexual contact or another way (even contact with skin or water).
The special feature of this infection is that it causes a large amount of fluid, which is bluish/green in color and smells like rotten fish. (For this reason, it is also called “fish syndrome”).
This smell shows itself especially after the chemical reaction between secretions and sperm or blood.
Therefore, after sex or during menstruation, women can seriously notice this unpleasant smell.
Bacterial vaginosis is not very severe and rarely has other symptoms other than this smelly discharge.
The treatment of this infection is very simple, using a few suppositories or taking a few pills in a few days will eliminate all this infection.
Generally, no other adjuvant treatment is performed except in cases of frequent recurrences of the infection; Because in these cases, probably, some microbes have not been removed from the urethra.
Vaginal fungus is also very mild, it is caused by a fungus called “Candida albicans”, which, like all other fungi, grows much better in moist environments.
Vaginal fungus shows itself in the form of very thick and white secretions, it has a slight smell of milk or yogurt. The lower the amount of infection, the less these secretions are released.
But these secretions are accompanied by another very irritating symptom: severe itching that affects the labia minora, labia majora, and the vulva. On the surface of the vulva, inflammatory symptoms are also observed, including: redness, small grains and sometimes small cuts.
Treatment of vaginal fungus is also done using suppositories and/or tablets.
But when these two infections are combined with each other, everything will be complicated, bacterial vaginosis and vaginal yeast co-exist because treating one does not work for the other. Therefore, a double treatment should be followed for about ten days.
The drawback of fungus is that it is chronic and disrupts the relationship between women and their husbands, because this disease causes painful intercourse.
The situation worsens when the infection is dormant and asymptomatic, waking up precisely during sexual intercourse.
That is why men are blamed for the transmission of this infection. While they are not to blame, because if a man is infected with the fungus, he will clearly recognize it, red seeds will appear on his penis, while the inflammation may show itself in the form of sores or cuts. As you can see, these symptoms are not invisible in men.
Attention, antibiotics cause vaginal fungi!
Antibiotics can also cause problems. Whatever the reason for prescribing antibiotics (bladder inflammation, tooth infection, abscess, acne, etc.), it causes fungus because it destroys all microbes except Candida albicans. Candida Albican also benefits from the created opportunity for further growth.
Also, it is very common for a woman who has cystitis and itching to be prescribed antibiotics. Antibiotic-based treatment will eliminate cystitis, but it will provide the conditions for the growth of yeast!
As a result, the fungus manifests itself through itching, while bacterial vaginosis is characterized by excessive discharge that emits a very foul odor during intercourse or during menstruation.
These common infections are not dangerous, unlike sexually transmitted infections (genital herpes, gonococcus, chlamydia) that can become the cause of infertility.
