- Non-specific vaginitis - can occur at any age
All vaginitis can be divided into specific and nonspecific. The specific vaginitis are mostly diseases, sexually transmitted diseases (gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, chlamydia, genital herpes) - pathogens of these infections enter the body from the outside. Non-specific vaginitis caused by opportunistic and microorganisms that reside in a woman's body.
Why start a nonspecific vaginitis
Non-specific vaginitis caused primarily pathogenic microflora is constantly dwelling on the walls of the vagina. These are some types of staphylococcus, streptococcus, E. coli, Proteus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Haemophilus influenzae, yeast fungi genus Candida, mycoplasma, ureaplasma, and others.
The vagina of healthy women of reproductive (reproductive) age has the ability to cleanse itself. This happens due to the fact that the normal vaginal flora
The microflora of the vagina: purity
suppresses livelihoods opportunistic, creating uncomfortable conditions for it. The composition of normal microflora include various microorganisms, but the bulk of its mass is laktobatslly that produce lactic acid - that acidity helps cleanse the vagina.
Vital functions of normal microflora is supported by the female hormones estrogen. Therefore, nonspecific vaginitis developed primarily for women with hormonal disorders
Hormonal disorders - oversupply and a lack of equally dangerous
or immunocompromised. Immunity disorders may occur when colds, against various common diseases (especially endocrine), intoxication, trauma, excessive physical and emotional stress, heavy stress, and so on.
Most nonspecific vulvovaginitis (inflammation of the vagina and vulva) occur in girls and older women, deprived of hormonal support. In children, the cause of vulvovaginal

It may be getting an infection through the blood of its permanent foci (nasopharynx, upper respiratory tract, and so on).
Finally, nonspecific vaginitis may develop non-compliance with the rules of personal and sexual hygiene. In this case, the infectious agents can enter the vagina from the gastrointestinal tract or of the lower urinary tract.
Non-specific vaginitis in the acute stage is manifested by pain and discomfort in the abdomen, copious, sometimes there is mild itching, burning sensation in the Tolowa Language organs. In girls, burning and itching may be more pronounced due to the fact that the genital mucosa have a thin and vulnerable. Often these symptoms are joined signs of lower urinary tract - Frequent painful urination. Vaginal mucosa swollen, reddened, sometimes bleeding - to secretions mixed with blood.
Not always all of these symptoms are severe, often acute stage of the disease goes unnoticed, so some women do not seek medical attention promptly.
Select with nonspecific vaginitis depends on the nature of inflammation: they can have serous (liquid) or mucopurulent, with or without impurities of blood. With a significant inflammatory process may be disturbed condition of the vaginal mucosa, especially in the upland areas of the papillary layer - these areas have the form of small red spots, which sometimes take the form of a small hill.
If the phenomena of vaginitis hold more than two months, it is considered to be the transition of the disease into a chronic stage. This swelling and redness in the vaginal mucosa are reduced, but the small red spots are rising - this is a signal that was carried out in insufficient.
Complication nonspecific vaginitis can spread infection to domestic (more common in women of reproductive age) and external (vulvovaginitis are more common in children) genitals.
Diagnosis begins with a medical examination and questioning of the sick woman. Then take laboratory tests - a swab from the vagina, cervix and the urethra (identifies the severity of inflammation), crop nutrient discharge to the environment in order to identify the infectious agent and its sensitivity to various drugs.
Help clarify the diagnosis and colposcopy
Colposcopy - how to prepare it properly?
- Research with a special optical equipment, which allows to consider in detail all the changes in the vaginal mucosa.
Identified as associated diseases and foci of infection - they are important to promptly treat. Treating nonspecific vaginitis is conducted only after a full examination.
