Bacterial Vaginal Infection
A bacterial vaginal infection
can also be known by the names of a yeast infection, candida,
candidiasis, and vaginitis amongst other things. There are
probably more names for this particular infection, but it all
comes down to one thing. You have a bacterial vaginal infection
and it’s nigh on driving you insane.
The itching alone is something
that you could do without, but when you throw in the other
symptoms such as vaginal discharge, a burning sensation, rash,
possible pain during sexual intercourse and an irritation of
the vagina, it’s really more than anyone should have to
The problem with this though,
is that if you have a bacterial vaginal infection, it is
something that you’re unfortunately going to have to put up
with, at least until you can find a cure for it.
Also noted ladies, that
even if you feel no pain during sexual intercourse, it might be
best to abstain until you’re well on the road to recovery.
Although not classified as an STD (sexually transmitted
disease), it can be transmitted from one partner to the other
during sexual intercourse.
This means that your partner,
even though might be a male, can still get a yeast infection.
In this case of course it wouldn’t be a bacterial vaginal
infection, but instead it would be a male yeast infection, or a
penile yeast infection.
It should also be noted that a
bacterial vaginal infection can be recurrent. What this means,
is that even though you might have cleared up your first
encounter with this infection, there’s a chance that you could
get it again.
In fact of the more than 75%
of the women who will get a bacterial vaginal infection in
their lifetime, many of them will have recurrent bacterial
vaginal infection symptoms.
That said, there’s really no
need to worry as in general a bacterial vaginal infection can
be cured, or cleared up, with only minimal fuss or bother.
There are as many cures for a bacterial vaginal infection as
there are causes, with the scales balanced firmly in favor of
the cures section.
It’s only when the infection
proves to be stubborn does it take the combined efforts of will
power, medication and stringent preventative measures to help a
woman with bacterial vaginal infection.
Prescription medications are
of course the preferred treatment for many women suffering from
a bacterial vaginal infection, but there are yet more women who
will turn to the route of home remedies to help cure
By far the most popular of
these home treatments happens to be that of applying natural
unsweetened yogurt to the affected area. This is one proven
method to beat off a bacterial vaginal infection.
Since a bacterial vaginal
infection normally occurs only when there’s a bodily imbalance,
you should keep to a healthy lifestyle. Stay away from douches
and other products that can create a warm inviting place for
the Candid Albicans bacteria to thrive in your
