My vaginal discharge smells like fish. I'm assuming this couldn't possibly bedue to a messy fish and chips dinner. No, way more intimate than someone constantlyspilling dinner in my lap. Then the most likely cause is due to an infection. I don't think I have a social disease. Well,I hope I don't have a sexual disease. If you have bacterial vaginosis caused bythe overgrowth of bacteria naturally down there, you can end up with a fishy odor. How could I have developed thaté
So much douching to remove any odor that youstripped away healthy bacteria, leaving the bad ones a fertile playground. If you said that about my digestive tract,the solution would be probiotics. If you have that type of discharge, you cantreat it by eating yogurt and hoping that circulates through your system to the vagina.Or you can take the direct route and put yogurt up there. That's as embarrassing to admit as a coloncleanse. You know that it is bacterial overgrowth ifit is worse after you have sex or if you're
suffering a UTI too. I don't see how a UTI could cause this. If you're wiping back to front, the poopbacteria that get into the urinary tract and cause a UTI will cause vaginosis too. What's a reason that doesn't have to dowith a playground being between two sewersé A fishy odor accompanied by a green dischargemeans you have trichomoniasis. It is sometimes called just trich, pronounced trick. *That I've heard of, but I don't knowanything about it.
Trichomoniasis is a protozoan infection, andit causes a sour or fishy smell. Then trich is a sexual disease. Yes, and they can cure it with antibiotics. What else could it beé If it smells like rotted meat down there,you may have forgotten a tampon. That's what can cause toxic shock syndrome. Yes, and rotted fish smells means you havethe vaginosis or severe yeast infection, plus the bacteria that can cause toxic shock syndrome.
Anything on that list necessitates gettingto a , and after which, only using ultrathick maxi pads. If the vaginal discharge smells bad and lookslike curds, you have a yeast infection. It is also more likely if the itching is bad,skin is red and it hurts when you pee or have sex. At least that I can treat with stuff fromthe store. And any other cause requires talking to a, yogurt or not.

It can additionally cause a person to experienceseptic shock and lowered blood pressure.
Confusion, body rashes, pain, rapid heartbeat,and light headedness are all common symptoms of this type. Gangrene has been documented as far back as1194 AD, when Duke Leopold of Austria had his foot crushed by his horse. Once the foot was infected, his surgeons advisedhim to have it amputated. It took them three tries to do so successfully,however, and after he likely suffered more injuries, he contracted wet gangrene and eventuallydyed. The disease was not widespread until the 19thcentury during the American Civil War.
Fought between 1861 and 1865, the war wasa bloody affair, claiming the lives of 750,000 soldiers. By some estimates, gangrene was responsiblefor nearly 400,000 of those debts. Soldiers on both sides were subjected to poormedical facilities and practices. s mistakenly would use dirty hands andinstruments to operate on patients, which resulted in the fast spread of gangrene. During this time, it became known as â€œgangrene.â€� In most cases, soldiers dyed after contractingthe wet gangrene type.
A similar problem was presented in World WarI when soldiers began contracting â€œtrench foot.â€� World War I was known for its use of trenches,and where soldiers often spent long hours inside these trenches during battle. The long hours and even days spent in thetrenches' unsanitary conditions often resulted in the development of gangrene, which alsocaused sensory nerve damage, inflammation, and frostbite.
