What causes vaginitis?
Hi,
I have been suffering from vaginitis for the past 2 years and it is a very irritating and embarassing disease.I would like to know from anyone what causes it and could it lead to something more serious like cancer?What are the ways i can control it and reduce the number of occurences coz i get it after about 4-6 months.
Any advice will be much appreciated.

Vaginitis just means infection of the vagina. There are many possible causes for this. The easiest way to find out the cause in your case, is to ask your doctor to take a swab and send it to the laboratory.
