Also known as colpitis, vaginitis is the medical term for an inflammation of the vagina. It is often caused by an infection, as in about 90 per cent of cases, but also can be caused by other things, including a defective IUD or intrauterine device.
Side effects of vaginitis include pain, itching, swelling, burning, irritation, redness and discharge.
Women who suffer vaginitis after receiving a defective IUD implant for birth control such as a Mirena IUD can claim economic compensation via a birth control lawsuit.
