Vaginitis - Diagnosis of Sexually Transmitted Gynecological Infections

Vaginitis is one of the most common problems in clinical medicine, and it is the reason cited most often for visits to obstetricians and gynecologists.

The four most common infections causing vaginal discharge are bacterial vaginosis, aerobic vaginitis/desquamative inflammatory vaginitis, candidosis, and trichomoniasis. Management of vaginal discharge can be challenging as many of the symptoms and signs are non-specific. If not treated or treated inappropriately these conditions can lead to an assortment of complications. A key objective in the diagnosis of vaginitis is the appropriate diagnostics test.
