Pijn en geur bij vagina

You may suffer from various vaginal symptoms:

  • Change in your discharge
  • Discharge with an unpleasant odour (fish smell)
  • Redness, irritation
  • Pain, burning sensation while urinating
  • Pain during and after sex
  • Blood loss after sex
  • Swollen labia
  • Wounds, sores, chapping, cuts

 

These symptoms may point to many different causes: for example, an STI, skin condition, cervical cancer, reduced resistance due to medication, diabetes, HIV infection or pregnancy. But for sex workers, the most common causes of pain and odour in the vagina are bacterial vaginosis and fungal infection (candida). These are not STIs.

These disorders are caused by an imbalance in the vagina, for example due to:

  • Use of antibiotics or other medications
  • Pregnancy
  • Washing your vagina with soap or vaginal douches
  • Excessive use of remedies such as Lactacyd
  • Keeping vaginal sponges or tampons in for too long
  • Switching directly from anal to vaginal fucking or sharing sex toys without changing condoms
  • Many (changing) sex contacts
  • Having an STI
