Thrush & Bacterial Vaginosis
Thrush is a very common condition caused by yeast which lives harmlessly in the female vagina. It can be made worse by products that may cause irritation of the vagina, such as vaginal deodorant or bubble bath. It can be treated by anti-fungal tablets or a cream and pessary.

BV is not a sexually transmitted infection, but it can cause an increase in unpleasant smelling vaginal discharge. It may settle down on its own or vary through the monthly cycle but it can be treated with antibiotics.
