What is yeast infection?


Vaginal yeast infections, also called vaginal candidiasis, are prevalent in women. It is estimated that 75% of women will have at least one yeast infection in their lifetime. A vaginal yeast infection is a fungal infection that causes irritation, discharge, and intense itchiness of the vagina and the vulva — the tissues at the vaginal opening. Although it is very common to treat yeast infections, the symptoms of yeast infections are similar to other, more serious conditions, including sexually transmitted infections and bacterial vaginosis (bacterial overgrowth in the vagina). Therefore an accurate diagnosis is important before you use any over-the-counter treatment products.




What is urinary tract infections or UTI?


A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of your urinary system — your kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. It is one of the most common infections in humans. Women tend to get urinary tract infections more often than men because bacteria can reach the bladder more easily in women. Women’s urethra (the opening to your urinary tract) is shorter than men’s and is located near the rectum. A simple UTI can be treated with a short course of antibiotic meds, but a UTI complication can lead to more serious consequences. The most common UTIs occur mainly in women and affect the bladder and urethra:

  • Infection of the bladder (cystitis) is usually caused by Escherichia coli (E. coli), a type of bacteria commonly found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. However, sometimes other bacteria are responsible. Sexual intercourse may lead to cystitis, but you don't have to be sexually active to develop it. All women are at risk of cystitis because of their anatomy — specifically, the short distance from the urethra to the anus and the urethral opening to the bladder.
  • Infection of the urethra (urethritis) can occur when GI bacteria spread from the anus to the urethra. Also, because the female urethra is close to the vagina, sexually transmitted infections, such as herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and mycoplasma, can cause urethritis.
Urinary tract infections are common in women, and many women experience more than one infection during their lifetimes.




What is bacterial vaginosis or BV?


Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is an infection of the vagina that happens when there are too many certain bacteria in the vagina. This changes the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina. A type of bacteria called lactobacillus keeps your vagina slightly acidic, so bad bacteria don't grow well. If your lactobacillus levels drop, more bad bacteria move in, and you get BV. Women in their reproductive years are most likely to get bacterial vaginosis, but it can affect women of any age. The cause isn't completely understood, but certain activities, such as unprotected sex or frequent douching, increase your risk. About half of the time, women with BV have no symptoms. But if a symptom develops, it can be:

  • Burning feeling when you pee
  • Fishy smell that gets stronger after sex
  • Itching
  • Thin white, gray, or green discharge
BV is not the same as a yeast infection. Bacterial vaginosis has been tied to a higher risk of other health problems, so it is crucial to take a diagnosis and get early treatment.




What other common GYN exams I should to know about?


During a gynecologist visit, a doctor might ask questions related to private topics, such as sex, birth control, pregnancy, and problems related to menopause. Common exams may include thyroid gland check, breast examination, and a pelvic examination. The pelvic examination includes the following:

  • External reproductive organs
  • Internal reproductive organs
  • (Optional) Rectum
A pelvic examination is not usually done before age 21 unless there is a symptom, such as irregular periods, pelvic pain, or vaginal discharge.




What is HPV?


HPV stands for Human Papillomavirus, a common virus that can infect many parts of the body. There are more than 100 different strains of HPV, grouped into (i) high-risk types (may cause cancer) and (ii) low-risk types (non-cancer causing).

  • About 40 HPV strains can infect the genital area.
  • High-risk strains of HPV are associated with cervical, vaginal and vulvar cancer in women, and less commonly, anal or penile cancer in men. The most common high-risk strains are 16 and 18.
  • Low-risk strains of HPV may cause no symptoms or lead to genital warts. HPV types 6 and 11 are responsible for about 90% of genital warts.
  • Other HPV strains may infect the skin of the fingers, hands, and face.

Certain types of HPV can infect the cervix (the lower part of the womb), vagina, and vulva. In most cases, the body's immune system can fight off the infection and clear the virus. However, sometimes the HPV infection can persist and cause abnormal changes to the cells. Some of these abnormal cells may develop into cervical cancer. This usually takes years to develop. Specifically, HPV subtypes 16 and 18 account for about 70 percent of cervical cancer cases. Source: Healthhub.sg
