Vaginitis is caused when there is an overgrowth of bad bacteria inside the vagina. When the balance of the natural flora inside the vagina is disturbed which can be due to several reasons like lack of hygiene, multiple sexual partners, vaginal infections etc., the result is vaginitis.
Vaginitis can cause severe itching, inflammation, pain at the time of intercourse and urination, foul smelling discharge and sometimes bleeding as well. Several alternative treatment methods are very effective in treating vaginitis. Homeopathy too has several treatment methods that can treat vaginitis.
