What are the symptoms? 

The main symptom of vaginitis is a lot of whitish, gray, or yellowish discharge from the vagina. Some milky vaginal discharge is normal for females of all ages, but infections cause an abnormal amount of discharge. The discharge may have a bad odor.

You may also have:

  • an unpleasant odor from the vagina
  • itching
  • a swollen, red vulva, which may be painful or itchy
  • painful intercourse
  • bleeding in the vaginal area.
  • symptoms of a urinary tract infection, such as pain when you urinate.

If you have pain in your lower abdomen or irregular bleeding with these symptoms, see your health care provider right away. If you are at risk for a sexually transmitted disease and have the above symptoms, you should also see your provider right away.
