Gynecologists in Britain report that statistically, eight out of ten women have suffered, at least once, from a vaginal infection. Despite the symptoms, many women do not see their gynecologist, due to lack of time or because they are embarrassed. In fact, for a lot of women infection is an embarrassment, a taboo subject, as they think of it as a typical sexually-transmitted disease. But that is not true! The truth is this condition, apart from being very common; it is caused by a series of factors. However, whatever the cause, the infection must be treated. If the fungus is not treated correctly, it can get worse or come back after the next period – even after taking medication. It is important to seek medical advice and get a treatment that is suitable for you.
Vaginal infections weaken the immune system and prevent healthy vaginal bacteria from overcoming the fungus. The lactic acid bacteria, called lactobacilli, inhabit the whole vaginal mucous membrane. A healthy vagina has an acidic pH-value between 3.8 and 4.5, keeping unwanted bacteria from spreading. The protective microcosm of the vagina is not easily upset, but internal and external influences can increase the number of lactic acid bacteria and unfavorable bacteria. This causes a rise of the pH-value inside the vagina, with the resulting bacterial imbalance causing the vaginal infection.
The causes of a bacterial infection can be one or a combination of the following.
Nowadays, a quick infection test from the pharmacy can provide a safe and accurate diagnosis. The most common symptoms of a vaginal infection you may experience are:
It is indicated to take a test or go to the doctor if you experience one or more of the above symptoms.
A specific antibiotic is needed for the treatment of bacterial vaginosis. Since the bacteria of bacterial vaginosis are not caused by the candida yeast fungus, the treatment needs to be done with a different product. Fortunately, at Apomeds, we have the appropriate infection medication for you in stock!
For the treatment of bacterial vaginosis, we carry a highly effective antibiotic called Metronidazole. This medication fights anaerobic bacteria like helicobacter, gardnerella, and campylobacter. Also, Metronidazole works against protozoan bacteria like trichomonas, entamoeba histolytica, and giardia. After you take this antibiotic as instructed by your prescribing physician, within a short period the infection will be stopped and the symptoms disappear. Ultimately, the bacteria are killed and the vaginal flora regenerates.
Products that restore the acidic vaginal and gut flora are needed since the vaginal fungus dislikes an acidic environment. The following natural products can be taken as prevention, externally and internally:
If the fungus comes back frequently, after taking the medicine and the recommended precautions, it is highly advisable to wear cotton underwear that can be washed at 90 degrees in the washing machine and no longer wear string thongs. Healthy nutrition and a lifestyle with little stress, are also crucial for the regeneration of the natural balance of the vaginal flora.
