    Women who suspect they may have a vaginal infection should visit their doctor. A doctor will examine the genital area to look for signs of other conditions and take a swab of vaginal discharge for laboratory testing. Taking a swab is an important step in obtaining a diagnosis. A doctor cannot accurately diagnose a vaginal infection by asking the woman about symptoms and/or by just conducting an examination.
