When experiencing abnormal vaginal symptoms, many women assume it’s a yeast infection. Yet, a recent study demonstrated that only 1/3 of women correctly self-diagnose.

Dr. Vera Kohut provides insight into why so many women make this common mistake and offers sound advice to help identify the type of infection and seek best course of action. Starting with the right diagnosis is the key to faster relief.
