The term vaginitis is one that is applied to any inflammation or infection of the vagina, and there are many different conditions that are categorized together under this ‘broad’ heading, including bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis and non-infectious vaginitis. However, for most women, the most common form of vaginitisis that caused by a yeast infection. Because this is the most common form of vaginitis, this is therefore the particular form of infection that is going to be investigated and analyzed in this book. In this book, you will learn more about this infectious disease. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Troy McElfresh. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/027147/bk_acx0_027147_sample.mp3.

Use coping strategies for a happier life. Genital herpes or Herpes Simplex-2 is a member of a family of diseases and illnesses that include chicken pox, shingles, and mononucleosis. The cold sores that people find around the mouth and nose are from Herpes Simplex-1, the cousin of genital herpes. The two diseases are similar, yet very different. A highly contagious viral infection, herpes is not dangerous or life threatening, but causes emotional trauma and is an ongoing nuisance. Herpes is transmitted from person to person through intimate contact, oral, genital, or anal. Kissing, sharing towels, or touching infected areas and then touching your own body can also pass on the infection. Women with genital herpes may have breakouts deep in the vagina where the open sores cannot be seen or felt. Someone with herpes may have breakouts deep in the vagina where herpes is at their most contagious when the sores are visible, however an infected person may be contagious at any time. A person without infection has a 75% chance of contracting herpes during intimate contact with someone who harbors the infection. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dorothy Deavers Moore.

This book is an investigation of the impact of virginity testing on the livelihoods of young girls in the Eastern Cape. Maluleke (2012) defines virginity testing as the practice and process of inspecting the genitalia of girls and women to determine if they are sexually chaste. Singer (2000) argues that virginity is seen by the presence of hymen in girl's vagina, whereas its absence means no virginity. This study will adopt the definition of Maluleke (2012) as it reflects the testing procedures in the O.R Tambo district municipality. With modern day's new views on human rights, the practice of a virginity test has been less practiced for a period now, with the ever-growing risk of HIV infection tribal communities' leaders have revived this practice which relates to the Reed Dance Ceremony (Squidoo, 2012).
Researches that dealt with Candida Albicans yeast in great interest have been vastly expanded which was regarded one of causes of candidiasis. C. Albicans are the most common types of Candida infections, which cause inflammation of women in fertile age infection in the lining of the vagina. It can also affect the nails and the incidence of inflammation in the tunic of the nail and its erosion and the separation of the nail plate and loss in advanced cases of disease.

Vulvodynia (also called "vestibulodynia") is a chronic pain syndrome categorized in the ICD-9 group 625 specifically ICD-9 625.7, which is for pain and other disorders of the female genital organs. It refers to pain of the vulva unexplained by vulvar or vaginal infection or skin disease.Pain is the most notable symptom of vulvodynia, and can be characterized as a burning, stinging, irritation or sharp pain that occurs in the vulva, including the labia and entrance to the vagina. It may be constant or intermittent, but vulvodynia is usually defined as lasting for at least 3 months.
Neonatal meningitis is the term used to describe meningitis that occurs in the first 28 days of life. Many different organisms can cause neonatal meningitis, broadly grouped as bacteria, viruses and fungi. However, the most common causes are bacteria, in particular group B streptococcus (GBS) and Escherichia coli (E. coli). GBS bacteria live harmlessly in the vagina and intestinal tract of approximately 10 to 30% of women. These bacteria can sometimes be passed to the baby during delivery. The result is usually colonisation of the skin surfaces and only a small percentage of babies go on to become ill with serious infection. When a baby becomes ill in the first six days of life this is called early onset disease. When a baby becomes ill between seven and 28 days after birth this is called late onset disease. Rarely, infection may occur as late as three months of age.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! TEN affects many parts of the body, but it most severely affects the mucous membranes, such as the mouth, eyes, and vagina. The severe findings of TEN are often preceded by 1 to 2 weeks of fever. These symptoms may mimic those of a common upper respiratory tract infection. When the rash appears it may be over large and varied parts of the body, and it is usually warm and appears red. The dermal layer fills with fluid being deposited there by the body's immune system, usually as a result of a negative reaction to an antibiotic. The skin then begins to sag from the body and can be peeled off in great swaths. The mouth becomes blistered and eroded, making eating difficult and sometimes necessitating feeding through a nasogastric tube through the nose or a gastric tube directly into the stomach.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency (X-SCID) is an immunodeficiency disorder that affects lymphocytes. It is a recessive trait stemming from a defective version of the gene responsible for the functionality of the Interleukin 2 receptor (IL2RG). Persons afflicted with X-SCID often have infections very early in life, before three months of age. This is followed by pneumonitis, an inflammation of the lung which produces common symptoms such as cough, fever, chills, and shortness of breath. In addition, moniliasis, a type of fungal infection, is a telltale sign of X-SCID. Moniliasis involves moist areas of the body such as skin, the mouth, respiratory tract, and vagina. Symptoms of moniliasis include difficulty in swallowing, pain on swallowing and oral lesions.
In spite of advances in obstetric care, approximately thirteen million preterm birth occur annually worldwide. Infection is an important and frequent cause of preterm labour and birth using the ascending route from the vagina. Since there are adverse effects from antibiotic use, it is logical to ask do antibiotics given systemically decrease the incidence of preterm birth? A historical review was carried out to assess the numbers and quality of randomised clinical trials. The results confirmed improvement in the number and quality of trials since the sixties.Also, an umbrella review was carried out. Forty five clinical trials were included. The results indicated that the use of antibiotics during pregnancy had no effect in preventing preterm labour before 34 weeks and this is accompanied by an increase in the maternal adverse effects. Antibiotics were also shown to be not effective in preventing neonatal morbidity associated with prematurity. This book should be especially useful to Obstetricians, General Practitioners, young doctors, women in fertile age and researchers in the medical field.
