Common genitourinary infections.
J Obstet Gynecol Neonatal Nurs. 1995 Oct; 24(8):735-42.JO

Abstract

Vulvovaginal pain, itching, and burning are a triad of symptoms for which women frequently seek health care. Often accompanied by vaginal discharge and dysuria, these symptoms account for as many as 5 million office visits a year. Proper assessment and management of these symptoms by nurses, nurse practitioners, and nurse midwives can help to substantially improve a woman's quality of life and help prevent long-term problems. Several differing syndromes or infections can be the cause of these symptoms. The most common causes are discussed, and a plan for management and prevention is presented.
