Causative organisms for Blue Waffles STD:

Vaginal infections can be caused by bacteria, fungi, virus or any other pathogenic parasites.  However, there are some factors which increase the risk of suffering from sexually transmitted infections:

  • Under normal circumstances in healthy bodies, the good bacteria which are colonizing in vagina are likely to kill the bad ones such as anaerobes. When the immune system is weak the reverse process takes place. Due to this risk of vaginal infection increases.
  • Promiscuous sexual behavior is a main factor for the transmission of many sexually transmitted diseases. Having many sexual partners increased the risk of infections like blue waffles. There is higher rate of vaginal infections and STDs in sex workers.
  • Unhygienic conditions also contribute to the spread of infection. Most of the bacteria need high temperature and moist environment for their growth. When vagina is not kept clean and dry there is more risk of infection. Women who do not clean their vagina after sexual intercourse are at increased risk of STDs.
  • When unhygienic sexual toys are used for masturbation, the bacteria are transmitted quickly. Bacteria become inactive or dormant while on these toys but as soon as they enter vagina, they become active metabolically and start reproducing. In this way the use of these toys can increase the risk of infection.
  • Repeated cleaning of vagina though apparently seems good but sometimes it can kill good bacteria in vagina as well and as a result there is more risk of catching STDs.
  • In some cases, the use of vaginal deodorants, perfumed soaps to keep genitals fragrant can result in inflammation of vaginal walls and hence there is more risk of such infections.

As you experience some of the symptoms mentioned above, you need to consult gynecologist. The vaginal examination is needed and sometimes the sample of vaginal discharge is sent to laboratory for further testing.
