Vaginal Discharge

Vaginal Discharge Causes

PID can be caused by sexually transmitted bacteria that usually come from an infected partner.

Vaginal Discharge Definition

Vaginal discharge, also known as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an inflammation of the female genital tract. It is a result of various sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia and gonorrhea.

Vaginal Discharge Diagnosis

Diagnosis of PID can be done through physical examination as well as laparoscopic procedures to detect further growths or abnormalities in the pelvic area.

Vaginal Discharge Symptoms and Signs

Women suffering from PID experience extreme pelvic pain, discomfort during sexual activity as well as infection of the urinary tract. Bleeding, nausea and vomiting are also present during the onset of the disease.

Vaginal Discharge Treatment

Pelvic inflammatory disease can be treated with antibiotics. Intravenous antibiotics are administered to severe cases, while oral doses of doxycycline, metronidazole and intramuscular ceftriaxone are given to milder cases. Laparoscopy is thus done when surgery is required to treat the patient.
