VAGINAL / VULVAL SYMPTOMS
Women’s Health Services
There are a number of conditions that can affect your vagina and vulva (the outside part of the female genitals). Some are uncomfortable, others can be painful and irritating.
If you have any of the following symptoms:
- an increase in the amount of vaginal discharge or an unusual or unpleasant smell
- itching, burning or soreness around the vaginal area
- pain when you pass urine
- pain when you have sex
you could have one of the following vaginal conditions:
- Vaginal infection including STI, Thrush, Bacterial Vaginosis or
- Vulval dermatitis
Thrush is a common infection of the vagina caused by yeast found in our body and often treated with over the counter treatment. If the infection keeps coming back a longer course of antifungal treatment can be prescribed.
Other more serious vulval skin conditions can be associated with itching, pain or irritation so it is always important to have a check-up with a doctor if the symptoms do not improve.

PELVIC PAIN CLINIC
Endometriosis and pelvic pain are both common conditions in Australia and often underdiagnosed, with many women enduring prolonged periods of abnormal painful symptoms before receiving appropriate help.
As part of the National Endometriosis Action Plan, the Federal Government announced 22 National Centres, of which we are one, that were selected to develop an Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain clinic. The aim of these clinics is to facilitate timely access to assessment, management, referral and support for those experiencing pelvic pain due to, and exacerbated during, their periods.
With one in seven Australian women affected by endometriosis, we are pleased that we are able to expand our services to develop and provide this clinic in the Southern Highlands
