Can vaginitis go away untreated? It isn’t a good idea to wait for vaginitis to disappear unless you know what’s causing it. For instance, some mild yeast infections go away on their own, but not all cases do. Bacterial vaginosis usually clears up on its own, but left untreated, it can put you more at risk for STIs.
Similarly one may ask, how do you get vaginitis?
You get vaginitis when the normal amount of yeast and bacteria in your vagina gets out of balance. This could happen for several reasons, including an infection, a change in hormones, or antibiotic use. It could also be because of a reaction you have to something that comes into contact with your vulva or vagina.
Similarly, what are the 3 main causes of vaginitis?
Approximately 90% of all cases of vaginitis are thought to be attributable to 3 causes: bacterial vaginosis, vaginal candidiasis (or vulvovaginal candidiasis [VVC]), and Trichomonas vaginalis infection (trichomoniasis). Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause of vaginitis, accounting for 50% of cases.
Will vaginitis go away without antibiotics?
Bacterial vaginosis often clears up on its own. But in some women it doesn’t go away on its own. And for many women it comes back after it has cleared up. Antibiotic treatment works for some women but not others.
