The cause of bacterial colpitis
Nonspecific bacterial colpitis
Nonspecific bacterial colpitis manifests itself when a woman’s body is weakened and the conditionally pathogenic flora, always present in the vagina, begins to multiply excessively, causing inflammation. In this case, most often you have to deal with staphylococci, streptococci, yeast-like fungi and so on.
This includes, for example, allergic colpitis. The onset of the disease can be triggered by the use of intimate perfumes, local contraceptives.
Any form of colpitis is a reason to visit a gynecologist. If you feel itching, discomfort, pain in the vagina, if there is a change in the quantity, color, smell of secretions - all these are “signs” of possible colpitis. For a full and effective treatment of the disease, a microscopic examination of the vaginal smear and the qualified help of a specialist are necessary. . Self-medication in this case is a direct path to the chronic course of the disease, and then to endometriosis, cervical erosion and infertility.
Prevention of colpitis
Preventive measures in relation to colpitis are reduced to personal hygiene and hygiene of intimate life, however, not raised to the absolute. Be moderate in the use of intimate perfumes, do not abuse fragrant tampons and pads. And with wearing synthetic underwear, too, please be more careful.
Not the last role in the prevention of colpitis belongs to the diet. Try to eat less sweet (which, by the way, like you adore, for example, Candida fungus), more vegetables and sour-milk products.
Be healthy and take care!
