Vaginitis refers to various disorders that lead to vaginal infections or vaginal inflammations. These disorders are caused due to infections by organisms like bacteria, yeast or viruses. Further, usage of creams, sprays or clothing can also affect vagina and cause vaginitis. It can also be caused due to infection passed during sexual intercourse, vaginal dryness and lack of estrogen. The symptoms of vaginitis include- white vaginal discharge, itchy feeling in vulva, redness, burning sensation, abnormal smelling of vaginal discharge, greenish-yellow discharge, bleeding, discomfort in lower abdomen, etc.
‘Kaphaja Yoni Vyapath’ is the term for vaginitis in ayurveda. Due to excessive use of Abhishyandi substances i.e. oily substances, they reach the reproductive system and cause Pichhila, sheets, pandu varna, yoni Srava, kandu and alpa vedana in yoni. Other factors that change normal balance of the vagina are excess use of antibiotics, douching, spermicides, sexual intercourse, breast feeding, and abnormal changes in hormones.
The main reason for problems with yoni is Vata dosha imbalance, especially because of Vata sthana of the reproductive system. Thus, the treatment of vaginitis focuses on pacifying the effects of Vata dosha. This is done by ayurvedic therapies like, Snehana (unction), svedana (fomentation), mrdu shodhana (purification), etc. The treatment is also accompanied by intake of medications like ashokarishta, lodhrasava, aragwadharishtam, etc. This line of treatment helps in reversing the symptoms of vaginitis in a natural way.

“The ayurvedic approach of disease looks for the root cause and not merely the symptoms. The basic principles of Ayurveda consider an individual human a specific identity and hence his treatment giving importance to the treatment of the patient rather than the treatment of the disease.”
“Since Ayurveda focuses on the root-cause of the disease, it effectively reduces the risk of severe health complications arising out of the untreated underlying cause. Patients who complete their Ayurveda treatment have a reduced risk of health complications later.”
