Did you know there is a vaginal disease that affects one-third of women who are of childbearing age? Are you dealing with this disease?
This disease is known as Vaginitis and to sum it up is an inflammation of the lining of the vagina caused by pathogenic fungi or bacteria. Our vaginas are homes to many different microorganisms. Some that are beneficial and others that are not. The balance of these microorganisms depends on our age, function of your ovaries, and lifestyle. That is because all of these things affect the glycogen content of the vaginal wall. This glycogen is converted into high concentrations of lactic acid. It is then used to prevent bad bacteria from spreading.
The symptoms associated with vaginitis can be brutal. If you have ever had any sort of genital issue you know how uncomfortable and embarrassing it really is. Vaginitis is a very serious issue.
- Change in color of discharge from your vagina.
- Change in odor of discharge from your vagina.
- Change in amount of discharge from your vagina.
- Pain during intercourse.
- Pain during urination.

Drugs and other chemicals can cause allergic reactions and severe dryness of the vagina. Antibiotics should not be used because they can actually cause the spread of fungal infections. If these things won’t do any good then how can we rid ourselves of vaginitis?
The answer to that is quite simple. There are many different natural remedies that will normalize the microflora of the vagina and eliminate the signs of vaginitis. Now before you do these it is best to find out whether your disease is being caused by yeast or bacteria. This will help you to better treat the issue.
