Signs and Symptoms|
Some women have no symptoms. In women, watch for itching, burning, or pain in the vagina, excess vaginal discharge, change in the appearance or smell of discharge. Some men also have no symptoms, but watch for urinary tract infection (UTI), frequent urination, and/or discharge from the penis.
Ways To Contract
Pregnancy, antibiotics, birth control pills, menstruation, and diabetes can lead to vaginitis. It can be spread during sexual intercourse, oral sex, or anal sex.
Untreated, you can still pass it on to your sexual partner(s). Uncomfortable symptoms will continue. Men can get infections in the prostate gland and urethra.
