    Have there been recent developments in curing vaginitis?

    In an effort to reduce the occurrence of vaginitis, research is underway to determine the factors* that encourage the growth of vaginal bacteria, as well as their potential to cause infections. The medical community no longer considers vaginitis a minor irritant, and this condition is now the subject of substantial research in which scientists are also studying links with other conditions, such as pelvic inflammatory disease or pregnancy-related complications.

    In addition, U.S. researchers funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases have developed a simple and quick test to detect fungal infections. When this test becomes available for home use, vaginitis sufferers should find it easier to obtain an effective over-the-counter treatment.
