Vaginal Infections (cont.)

Vaginal Infections Treatment

Diagnosis is usually made based on your symptoms and results of urine tests and vaginal cultures (samples checked in the lab). Treatment is based on the organism causing the infection. Depending on the cause of the infection, your health care practitioner may prescribe vaginal suppositories, antifungal pills, or antibiotics (as pills or an injection). Treatment varies depending on which form of vaginitis you have, the severity of infection, duration of infection, recurrence of infection, and whether you are pregnant.
