Common Red Day Infections and How to Beat Them.
On red days, the female body is at its most vulnerable.
This is the time when the cervix slightly opens to allow blood to flow, but at the same time allows bacteria to enter—making the vagina more susceptible to infection. Levels of estrogen also drop, making it harder for the vaginal flora to recuperate when attacked by bacteria.
But what makes women even more vulnerable on red days? Poor menstrual hygiene. Washing, changing pads regularly and choosing the right feminine wash on your red days like GynePro can be crucial in ensuring that you keep red day bacteria at bay.
Here’s a list of the top 3 common infections women experience during menstruation and what you need to know about them.
Yeast Infections (Candidiasis)
Yeast infections occur when the balance of organisms in your vagina is upset, and the amount of yeast grows too much, causing an infection. Yeast infections are most likely to be noticeable just before or just after your menstrual period.
- Odorless cheese-like discharge
- Redness in the vaginal area
Urinary Tract Infection
Urinary tract infection (UTI) happens when bacteria finds its way through the urinary tract.
- Burning feeling when urinating
- Frequent and intense feeling to urinate
- Pain or pressure in the back abdomen
- Cloudy, dark, bloody or strange-smelling urine
Vaginitis is an inflammation of the vagina usually caused by a change in the normal balance of vaginal bacteria or an infection.
