Testing and Treatment

First Care tests for yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis, and cervicitis. Pelvic swabs are administered while the patient is lying down. Our licensed staff may use a speculum to assist in swabbing. If you are experiencing symptoms, schedule your free appointment now to get tested and treated.

Yeast Infections

Yeast infections are caused by a fungus called candidiasis. Yeast normally lives in the body but when it grows in the vagina it can cause some bothersome symptoms.  If yeast is present, we will recommend treatment with an over-the-counter cream or prescribe an oral pill.

Bacterial Vaginosis

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is a condition that happens when there is too much of certain bacteria in the vagina. This changes the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina.

Symptoms may include:

  • A thin white or gray vaginal discharge;
  • Pain, itching, or burning in the vagina;
  • A strong fish-like odor, especially after sex;
  • Burning when peeing; and
  • Itching around the outside of the vagina.

Trichomoniasis

Trichomoniasis (or “trich”) is a very common STD caused by infection with Trichomonas vaginalis (a protozoan parasite). Although symptoms vary, most people who have trich cannot tell they have it.

Symptoms may include:

  • Itching, burning, redness or soreness of the genitals;
  • Discomfort when peeing; and
  • A clear, white, yellowish, or greenish vaginal discharge (i.e., thin discharge or increased volume) with a fishy smell.

Urinary Tract Infection

UTIs are common infections that happen when bacteria, often from the skin or rectum, enter the urethra, and infect the urinary tract. The infections can affect several parts of the urinary tract, but the most common type is a bladder infection (cystitis). Kidney infection (pyelonephritis) is another type of UTI. They’re less common, but more serious than bladder infections.

Cervicitis

Cervicitis is inflammation of the cervix. The cause can be infectious or noninfectious. Acute cervicitis can be due to infections, such as gonorrhea or chlamydia, but often times no specific infection can be determined. Patients will be offered testing to help determine the cause of cervicitis and treatment as necessary.
