Abnormal Vaginal Discharge
What is Vaginal Discharge?
Every female has normal vaginal discharge produced by glands in the vagina and cervix, which serves to cleanse the vaginal canal and maintain a healthy vaginal environment. This normal discharge may vary throughout one’s menstrual cycle.
What is abnormal vaginal discharge?
There are naturally occurring bacteria in the vagina (“vaginal flora”) which help maintain an acidic environment. Any disruption to the natural balance of the vaginal environment, often due to bacteria that should not be present, can result in abnormal vaginal discharge.
Abnormal vaginal discharge may be different in colour, consistency and volume and may at times be accompanied by an unpleasant odour from the vaginal. This usually indicates the presence of a vaginal infection.
Our clinic offers a range of vaginal swab tests for evaluation of abnormal vaginal discharge.
These range from basic swabs for the most common non-sexually transmitted vaginal infections to comprehensive panels covering all sexually transmitted vaginal infections.
You can speak to our doctors to find out which test is most appropriate for you.
