Vaginal health issues can affect women of all ages, regardless of whether they are sexually active or not. These problems can range from vaginal infections to vaginal lumps and bumps or vaginal growths, vaginal ulcers, as well as vaginal dryness or painful intercourse (dyspareunia).
Vaginitis is when there is an infection of the vaginal canal, which often manifests as abnormal vaginal discharge, vaginal itching, vaginal soreness, an abnormal vaginal odour, or even postcoital bleeding (bleeding after intercourse), or spotting (bleeding in between periods). The causes of vaginal infections can be non-sexually transmitted such as yeast infections or sexually transmitted like chlamydia and gonorrhoea, with symptoms of abnormal vaginal discharge that can ultimately lead to more serious complications like a pelvic inflammatory disease. Our clinics offer diagnosis, testing and treatment of troubling vaginal infections including sexually transmitted diseases, recurrent yeast infections or recurrent bacterial vaginosis.
Vaginal lumps and bumps or abnormal vaginal growths may be due to benign causes like vulval cysts or vaginal cysts, infections such as genital warts, molluscum contagiosum, or more malignant causes like vulva cancer or vaginal cancer. Diagnosis of vaginal lumps and bumps is usually done clinically although sometimes a biopsy may be required. Treatment of vaginal growths depends on the underlying cause.
Genital ulcers can be extremely painful and distressing and are most commonly due to infections like genital herpes, which can cause recurrent ulcers.
Vaginal pain during intercourse or painful sex can be due to a variety of reasons and treatment may vary accordingly.
