Vaginitis is a general term for inflammation of the vagina and vulva. The most common types of vaginitis are bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections, trichomoniasis and vaginal atrophy (atrophic vaginitis).
A change in the normal balance of vaginal bacteria or a vaginal infection usually causes vaginitis. It can also happen after menopause due to reduced estrogen levels in the body. Other causes include excess use of vaginal sprays, douches, soaps, scented detergents and spermicidal products.
Factors that put you at an increased risk of developing vaginitis are hormonal changes, uncontrolled diabetes, side effects of certain medications, douching, poor hygiene, wearing damp or tight-fitting clothing and using an intrauterine device (IUD) for birth control.
