When the genital or vaginal area is affected by a bacterial infection, it changes the health and function of the surrounding tissue. Concerns may arise which include genital warts, UTI, and vaginal cancer. These health concerns can inhibit important bodily functions such as pregnancies and waste removal.
Genital warts appear as a growth on the skin tissue around the genitals and can be transmitted through sexual intercourse. Individuals with human papillomavirus are frequent carriers of this disease. Warts eventually disintegrate on their own without treatment. You can elect to receive treatment if you want to remove them sooner.
Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) are prevalent in women and cause pain or burning during urination. Women may experience other effects such as lower abdominal cramps, nausea, pus, blood, frequent urination, or pain.
UTI can be prevented through conventional means such as changing your lifestyle. The probability of having UTI can be reduced by cleaning the vaginal area and urinating before sexual intercourse. The risk of UTI can also be managed by exercising 5 days per week and drinking six to eight glasses of filtered water a day.
