Symptoms of vaginitis include:
- Abnormal vaginal discharge
- Vaginal odor

There are three most common types of vaginal infections; there are Candida or Yeast infections, Bacterial Vaginitis, and Trichomonas vaginitis.
If you are having symptoms of vaginitis, please call the office and speak to a triage nurse. They will schedule you an appointment with one of our providers. The provider will take a sample of the discharge from the vagina and view it under a microscope to decide. A culture may also be sent to an outside laboratory for testing.
Treatment you may receive for vaginitis includes either an antibiotic, or a cream that is applied to the vagina.
