Vaginal infections cause inflammation of the vagina (“vaginitis”) that can result in discharge, itching and a great deal of discomfort or pain. There are several different types of vaginal infections, including: bacterial, yeast and even parasites.
A change in the normal balance of vaginal bacteria can cause vaginal infections. Reduced estrogen levels after menopause and some skin disorders can also cause vaginitis. And, vaginal infections can also be sexually transmitted.
We offer rapid testing of vaginal infections, so that we can identify the cause and prescribe the medications that will ease your discomfort as soon as possible.
In some women, recurrent or “chronic” vaginal infection can cause frustrating, ongoing problems. Our caring OBGYNS can work with these patients to restore bacterial and pH balance to their system, and help put an end to recurring infections.

Our gynecologists have dedicated their OBGYN practice to offering the highest standard in women’s health care – while ensuring that every patient feels welcome, comfortable, and truly cared for.

Bacterial vaginosis results from a change in the normal bacteria found in the vagina to an overgrowth of other unwanted organisms.
It is characterized by excessive grayish-white, “fishy” smelling vaginal discharge. The odor is often more obvious after sexual intercourse.
Yeast infections are generally caused by an overgrowth of a naturally occurring fungus called Candida Albicans. It is often brought on by the use of antibiotics.
The primary symptom is extremely uncomfortable itching. It is usually accompanied by a thick, white, “cottage cheese” discharge.
Trichomoniasis is caused by a parasite that is usually transmitted to a partner during sexual intercourse.
Trichomoniasis is an infection that typically causes a greenish-yellow discharge that is sometimes “foamy”. You will need a prescription from a doctor such as Flagyl or Tindamax to kill the parasite.
