Maintaining balance is essential for every part of your life, including your health. When it comes to your vaginal health in particular, a change in estrogen levels can lead to an increase in bacteria and trigger vaginitis. Whether this condition is acute or chronic, it should be addressed as soon as possible. At Cohen Medical Practice, we can offer effective treatment options for both detecting and treating this issue. If you are experiencing painful urination, itching, spotting, or other similar symptoms, we urge you to schedule your appointment at one of our three NYC locations today.
What Causes Chronic and Acute Vaginitis?
Vaginitis is commonly caused by a bacterial infection. In this case, the bacteria normally found in your vagina (lactobacilli) is outnumbered by other bacteria (anaerobes). When this occurs, the balance in your system is upset and bacterial vaginosis develops.
Other causes include a yeast infection and trichomoniasis, which is caused by a parasite. Often, these infections are a form of STD and should be treated with medication and monitored closely.
Is This Condition Serious?
Due to the inflammation caused by this illness, those who have it may be at a greater risk of acquiring STDs in the future. Moreover, women who are pregnant or become pregnant while having vaginitis may be at a higher risk of premature delivery or low birth weight. In all cases, it is better to identify and treat this condition as soon as possible to avoid future complications.
How Is Vaginitis Treated?
At Cohen Medical Practice, we provide a range of treatment options to address this condition and help you feel better again. Along with offering annual exams, we also provide hormone replacement therapy options to restore your balance. Annual exams can give us great insight into not only the nature of this condition, but other issues you may be struggling with.
If hormone replacement is a good choice for you, you’ll be happy to know that administering this treatment is fast and often non-invasive, depending on the chosen method of delivery.
