Experiencing any kind of discharge that is different from white or yellow and has a fuel smell, frequency, quantity and texture might be a strong indication that you have toilet infection.
Pain also can be felt however its not a common symptom of toilet infection.
1. Douching or excessive washing of the vagina, particularly after sex, menses or even while bathing.
2. Wearing tight underwear or not keeping the vagina dry after bathing.
3. Excessive use of creams, perfumes or soap near the vagina.
4. It could also be due to hormones.
5. Excessive use of antibiotics.

Natural homemade remedies to cure toilet disease:
1. Use apple cider vinegar to rinse
Mix apple cider vinegar with water for a douche. Apple cider vinegar is believed to restore the acidic pH of the vagina. Mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with one cup of warm filtered water. Don’t use white vinegar, as this is too acidic.
2. Try using plain yogurt
It sounds messy and of course, it is messy. But inserting yogurt into your vagina is a way of re-providing the vagina with harmless bacteria that may be able to chase out the parasite.
Use plain yogurt and a 10 mL syringe. Every night, fill the syringe with the plain yogurt and fill your vagina by inserting the syringe and depressing the plunger.
Go to bed as usual, but wear a sanitary pad. The messiness comes in the morning when you get out of bed. You should also wear a thin pad during the day.
You should repeat every night until the symptoms disappear.
3. Try a clove of garlic.
A whole clove of peeled garlic can be inserted into the vagina and has been reported to be helpful in treating this infection. This is because the garlic contains allicin, which is a natural antibiotic that fights infection.
Peel a clove of garlic. Poke some holes in the garlic so that the allicin can be released. Insert the clove into your vagina. Replace the garlic every four hours for seven days or until symptoms have disappeared.
