( vaginal infection)
Joe Hing Kwok Chu
Trichomoniasis is a sexually
transmitted disease caused by a trichomonad (Trichomonas
vaginalis) that may also
invade the male urethra and bladder.
The symptoms in women include
pruritus and burning associated with a foul, heavy, yellow-green or
gray vaginal discharge, discomfort during intercourse, and painful
urination, and on rare occasions, lower abdominal pain.
A discharge associated with odor but
without irritative vulvar symptoms suggests a bacterial vaginosis.
Candida Yeast Infection
Itching and irritation and redness
around the external vagina,
especially in the absence of significant discharge.
Minimum thick, white discharges that look cottage cheese and may
smell like beer or yeast. Burning and / or pain during urination or
during sexual intercourse,
suggests candida infection .
