Vaginal Health - Infection

If you have a vaginal discharge that is unusual in smell or texture, causes itching and burning or leaves smelly spots on your underwear then you might have an infection. This may only be a minor infection, but you should always consult your GP, as unusual discharge can be the first sign of serious illnesses such as cervicitis, cervical erosion or polyps. It can also indicate STIs or cancerous lesions in the genital organs and untreated infections may lead to infertility.
