Vaginal Infections

The vaginal “ecosystem” can be easily disturbed. Vaginal infections can be triggered by dozens of daily things, such as sexual behavior, hormones (including hormonal contraceptives and changes in menstrual cycle), vaginal blood (from your period, irregular bleeding, etc.), anything inserted into the vagina (diaphragm, tampons, strings from an IUD) or medications (antibiotics, douching agents, antifungal agents, spermicides).
