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.
Vaginal Discharge During Pregnancy
I want your opinion of vaginal discharge duringpregnancy. If you have a sudden white mucus plug comeout, you're about to end the pregnancy and go into labor. I'm not that far along. The vaginal discharge will go back to whiteand thick after you ovulate. If you conceive, there may be drops of blood mixed in, or justbrown or orange streaks in the discharge. I'm a little farther along than that. The vaginal discharge usually increases involume during pregnancy, starting after implantation.
However, it remains white and thick throughoutunless something is wrong. I know any red blood in vaginal dischargeis dangerous, whether a sign of a miscarriage or uterine tear or something else only the will know. When you are pregnant, any bleeding is a reasonto go to the ER. Fortunately, I'm not seeing that type ofvaginal discharge. You'll normally see more white and thickvaginal discharge. Some women wear menstrual pads when pregnant to contain it. That sounds fishy to me. I didn't thinkI'd need diapers until after I had the kid.
If the vaginal discharge smells fishy or likevinegar, you have a yeast infection. I can't even take a pain reliever rightnow. What do I do about a yeast infectioné It is safe to use over the counter yeast infectiontreatment when pregnant, and you may need several. Pregnancy throws off your pH balanceand makes yeast infections much more likely. Glad I don't have that fishy smell downthere, then. It is thick and offcolor though. If it is green or yellow, you may have a bacterialovergrowth. That's dangerous during pregnancy. It could make things smell, and you do wantto talk to a about it. However, if
there are any lesions, itching and other signsof a social disease, you have to talk to a . Technically, life is sexually transmitted. A sexually transmitted disease contractedbefore or during pregnancy puts the kid at risk, and it may be flaring up worse whilepregnant because pregnancy compromises the immune system. Yes, I'd talk to the if I was worriedabout it, but I am not. Then you'll just see more white and thickdischarge. It would have increased in volume
as the cervix thickened and rose up from thelow point after ovulation. But not as high as it would be if I wasn'tpregnant. That's where a lot of the mucus is comingfrom, but know that it will become dry if you're dehydrated just as when you'renot pregnant.
