Vaginal Infections (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
If you are diagnosed with vaginitis, keep your genital area clean and dry. Take showers instead of baths. This will also help prevent future infections. Don't douche or use feminine hygiene sprays or powders while being treated. Don't have sexual relations while being treated.
After you leave the doctor, abstain from sexual intercourse until treatment is completed and symptoms subside.
