Acid reaction of the vaginal contents it prevents colonization of pathogenic and conditionally pathogenic microbes.
Contributing moments of occurrence of vaginitis is to reduce the resistance of the woman’s body in somatic infectious diseases, reduced endocrine function of the endocrine glands (ovaries disease various nature, menopause, diabetes, obesity), violation of the anatomical and physiological organization of the vagina for prolapse of its walls, gaping genital slit. Predisposing moment can be mechanical, chemical, thermal damage of the vaginal mucosa when carrying out manipulations in the vagina and in the uterus (abortion illegal, improper douching, the introduction of various objects into the vagina).
Development of obesity also contributes to the malnutrition of the vaginal mucosa with vascular disorders and of senile atrophy. The obesity arise from the failure to observe the rules of personal hygiene and hygiene of sexual life, but also in irrational use of antibiotics. All of the above points contribute to the settlement in the vagina unusual microflora with further development of inflammatory changes. Obesity can cause streptococci, staphylococci, Proteus, fungi.
