  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Flora of vagina changes during pregnancy and after due to change in Ph under the effect of hormones. This makes the area more prone to infections. Process of delivery and interventions during it leads to trauma to tissues and increases the chances of infection.
    Get yourself checked and vaginal swab culture done as it is recurring. Take medication accordingly. It is very important to treat your husband also. Maintain good hygiene in the local area and your undergarments should be frequently changed and dried properly after wash. Hygiene washes are available in market to clean the local area and can be used regularly to avoid recurrence.
    Self medication and excessive antibiotic intake should be avoided. Check if you are taking any medication for some other problem for long which might lower your immunity. Consult your doctor and discuss these in detail.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
