How should vaginitis patients use contraception?

The biological characteristics of the vagina suggest that it has the ability to prevent the invasion of external microorganisms due to its normal histology. However, when the natural defense function is destroyed for some reason, the pathogen is easy to take advantage of the situation and cause vaginitis.

There are two common vaginitis in women of childbearing age: one is trichomonal vaginitis caused by Trichomonas vaginalis. It can be transmitted directly through sexual intercourse, or indirectly through public places such as baths and medical devices.

It is characterized by pruritus of vulva and vagina; another kind of vaginitis is fungal vaginitis caused by Candida albicans, which is characterized by pruritus of vulva and white bean curd like leucorrhea.

After suffering from vaginitis, sexual intercourse should be prohibited during treatment. If it's mild vaginitis, you can choose long-term or short-term oral contraceptives; if vaginitis is very serious, especially trichomonal vaginitis, you should choose condom, because condom can avoid direct contact between penis and vagina, so as to avoid cross infection. At the same time, we should pay special attention to personal hygiene, prevent the use of public baths, and actively treat diseases.
