Vulvovaginitis

is inflammation or infection

of the vulva and vagina.

Vulvovaginitis can affect women of all ages and is extremely common. It can be caused by bacteria, yeasts, viruses, and other parasites. Some sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can also cause vulvovaginitis, as can various chemicals found in bubble baths, soaps, and perfumes. Environmental factors such as poor hygiene and allergens may also cause this condition.
 
Women in reproductive periods are likely to develop vaginitis secondary to yeast infection (Candida Infection), women close to fifty or post menopausal women are likely to develop vaginitis as a result of oestrogen deficiency and sometime lichen sclerosis which they are precancerous.
 
It is Queens Clinic Policy once women develop vulvovaginitis a full sexual history and examination must be carried out and sexual health screen is a mandatory tests in sexually active women.

                                                     

It is also Queens clinic advice that women using Condoms should be aware that Condom is not sexual health protection
