Vaginal Discharge, Itching or Irritation

It sounds like you may have an infection, either of the vagina or the cervix. Most of these infections can be treated easily with antibiotics. You should see your doctor to diagnose which infection you have and which antibiotic will be appropriate for you.

Common vaginal infections include bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis and chlamydia. Gonorrhea is another less common vaginal infection. Some of these infections can be passed between sexual partners. It is important to know which infection you have so you can tell your partner if they need to be treated or not.

Sometimes these infections are more serious and need to be addressed immediately. Symptoms of a more serious infection include

  • fever

  • pain in the lower part of your belly

  • a┬áthick yellow or yellow-green vaginal discharge.
