Vaginal Bacterial Infection

Aug 17, 2007
If you think you might have a vaginal bacterial infection, don't hesitate to have a proper medical checkup. There are a myriad of reasons why this is good for you, but the foremost reason is that by going in for a checkup you can rule out that what you have is anything other than a simple vaginal bacterial infection.

A vaginal bacterial infection can most of the time, be classed as a simple yeast infection. By determining for certain through a checkup that what you have is an infection you can then set about the task of finding the right kind of treatment for it.

By going in for a checkup you also give yourself some maneuvering room to take preventative action against a possible recurrence of your infection.

Most infections will be uncomfortable and will generally have you running around in circles to find a relief from the itching, or burning sensations you might suffer from.

With an infection such as a yeast infection you might also have to deal with a cottage cheese-like discharge which can also have an unpleasant acrid smell to it.

There's no help for it really, if you do suffer from this kind of infection you will need to get it treated as the chances are good that it won't go away on its own. You'll also want to try and abstain from having sexual relations until the infection clears up as well.

Since it's an "infection" and not something else there's a better than even chance that you can pass on your infection to your partner as well regardless of whether they're male or female.

However in the event that you find yourself unable to abstain from sexual intercourse, you might want to practice safe sex and use condoms as far as possible. Although this might not be a 100% fool proof method of protecting against the transmittance of your infection it does stand a better chance than using nothing at all.

Also, with a vaginal bacterial infection you will want as far as possible to stop it from recurring. You might be cured of the initial outbreak but you can get it again through sexual intercourse with an infected partner, so it's always best to be aware of that possibility.

To that end, taking all the necessary precautions, changing dietary habits and generally as stress free lives as possible can go a long way in fighting a vaginal bacterial infection. With minor changes such as these you give your immune system a fighting chance to stand up against whatever infection might be thinking about your body.
