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.
My Vaginal Discharge Smells Like Poop
My vaginal discharge smells like poop. Are you sure you aren't just blaming thewrong orificeé I don't think I'm leaking poop. The brown on the underwear is a pretty suresign. However, if you have endometriosis that adheres to the bowel, you could have diarrheawhen you have your period and bad gas even if not superpooping. And I thought the stomach pains were bad enoughwhen you had endometriosis. So if you have endometriosis, you could havebad gas at best and extra pooping at worse
when having your period. This is a constant thing, but a new problem. Do you have a new babyé If you just had akid, all the muscles down there are so strained that you may lose the ability to hold it in. My kid is crawling around. If you really strained those muscles, youend up leaking pee and even poop when you strain to pick things up, cough, sneeze andso forth. I haven't leaked pee in weeks. That'swhat keigel exercises are for.
That doesn't mean you didn't strain thebowels too, especially if you have rectal tears or hemorrhoids. I don't want to blame this on the kid. If you spent a day or two in hard labor, itis possible there are now microscopic holes between the vagina and bowel, or vagina andurinary tract that let that stuff seep into the wrong area. So even if I can hold it in, it finds anotherway out. That's disgusting. It is also a health problem, since poop gettinginto the vagina is a guarantee you'll get
more infections. Or way greater odds of a UTI. It would take a checking things outto say if that's the cause. I also can't rule out you wiping back to front, introducingbacteria to that area, and thus just smelling bad from the bacterial infection. Which becomes yet another reason to talk tothe . And you want to do it before you find yourselfhaving to go to the for even worse problems.
What else could be causing thisé Bacterial infections can make it smell likepoop, though it usually comes with white or gray vaginal discharge. And a burning sensation. You also get a fish like odor, especiallyafter sex. However, if there's a yeast infection too, you'll get more colors and odors. It sounds weird to say you could have morethan one infection at once. Having bacterial vaginosis increases yourodds of developing a yeast infection, kind
of like how you can have two STDs at the sametime. I don't even want to know what it is liketo have two STDs at once.
My Vaginal Discharge Smells Like Vinegar
My vaginal discharge smells like vinegar. Discharge is normally a little acidic andsmells a little like vinegar. We'll just say the smell is bad enough tobe more than normal. Fortunately, the cause of that isn't asfishy as it sounds, I mean smells. It is a little fishy, yes, but I'm not usedto it smelling like this. If you were used to yeast infections, youeither have a depressed immune system or diabetes. I know out of control diabetes means highblood sugar. I didn't think it could cause too much yeast in my own body.
It could also be because you're pregnant.The immune system decreases in some regards while pregnant to not harm the baby, raisingthe odds of a yeast infection. I don't think I'm pregnant. 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. If I had that many symptoms, I wouldn'tbe having sex. You could also have bacterial vaginosis.
Just what I need, a social disease. You could have thick discharge that smellsmore than usual due to bacterial overgrowth of the bacteria normally there and it isn'tclassified as a social disease. So how could I treat ité Don't douche like you might do, since thosecleansings actually worsen the normal bacterial balance. And you need yogurt That sounds like a fancy new age treatment,up there with herbs and lotions in my underwear. You eat the yogurt to help restore your body'sbacterial balance. There are some people who
do put yogurt up there, but it isn't recommended,though tea tree oil is. Drinking herbal teas is supposed to treateverything. What else can I doé Make sure you wipe front to back when youpoop so there isn't any bacteria making it from back to front. Any other ideas of what could be causing thisé It could be something sexually transmitted,especially if the cervical mucus is yellow or green or streaked with blood. I suppose the blood would be from lesionsor sores.
Yes, and you'll want to see a forany social disease. And it can be mistaken for a yeast infection, since the itching,burning and so forth are similar unless someone actually looks at it. Which is pretty much impossible for me unlessI reach the next level in yoga. You can try over the counter yeast infectiontreatments and diet changes, but if you have more than four in a year or it resists treatment,you need to see a .
