Is it common for the contraceptive pill Ava 30 to give vaginitis ?

Is it common for the contraceptive pill Ava 30 Ed "Levonorgestrel and Ethyinylestradiol tablets" to give you vaginitis or something along those lines, I have been taking this for just over a week now and have noticed i have been very itchy, so I was just wondering if it would be that and should i change my pill or is there something I can do about it?
Thanks much appreciated

Hi, thanks for the query.

Estrogen in oral contaceptives may cause vaginal discharge. Vaginitis can also occur in pill users mostly due to unprotected intercourse. Trichomonial and chalmydial infections are common. In my opinion you should take antibiotic and antifungal pessaries along with barrier contaceptives for some time.

Hope this helps. If you have any further query you can directly reach out to me on the following URL:
