Top 10 Cut on the Vagina Causes

  1. 1.Trichomonas Vaginal Infection

    Trichomonas vaginalis infection (or "Trichomoniasis" or "trich") is a common sexually transmitted disease caused by a parasite of the same name. It affects over 3 million people per year, but only about 30% have any symptoms.

    You should go see your primary care doctor in the coming days. He or she may order a number of tests to identify if the bug is actually the cause of your symptoms. Treatment involves prescription metronidazole or tinidazole.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    vaginal discharge, vulvovaginal odor, vaginal itch or burning, vaginal bleeding, white/gray vaginal discharge
    Symptoms that always occur with trichomonas vaginal infection:

    Symptoms that never occur with trichomonas vaginal infection:
    vaginal ulcer
    Urgency:
    Primary care doctor
  2. 2.Yeast Infection

    Yeast infections are caused by a fungus called "Candida." Candida is the scientific name for yeast that lives almost everywhere, including in the human body. Typically, our immune system keeps it under control, but if you take antibiotics or gets sick, the fungus can multiply and cause an infection. In this case, it is happening in the vagina.

    You can treat this with over-the-counter medications. However, if an over-the-counter does not work, it could be a different type of vaginal infection and evaluation in a clinic is needed.

    Rarity:
    Common
    Top Symptoms:
    vaginal itch or burning, thick vaginal discharge, white/gray vaginal discharge, vaginal pain, vulvovaginal redness

  3. 3.Bacterial Vaginosis

    Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is an infection caused when too much of certain bacteria change the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina. BV is not a sexually transmitted infection and is not caused by poor hygiene (in fact, excessive washing of the vagina may increase the risk). Its symptoms are usually mild, consisting primarily of a white-gray vaginal discharge that has a fishy smell.

    You should visit your primary care physician. If you have any symptoms of BV, a swab of the discharge will be tested to confirm the diagnosis, and antibiotic treatment will be started.
