A woman's healthy vagina is a moist place with a delicate balance of microorganisms. Subtle shifts can tip this balance, causing vaginitis (the general term for the variety of vaginal infections). At best, vaginitis can lead to a distracting level of discomfort, and at worst, serious health problems.
Vaginal Thrush is one of the most common infections affecting the genitals. A yeast called Candida albicans is responsible for the infection and discomfort caused in most cases.
