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.
How to Get Rid of Smelly Discharge
I need to know how to get rid of smelly discharge. Use deodorant or don't wear sweats while workingout. I mean, down there. If you're wearing that tight lycra while workingout and the sweat builds up around there, you can still get a yeast infection or rashdown there that smells pretty bad. If I were working out that much, I wouldn'tworry about this smell relative to the odor of sweat. I hope you've seen a recently.
I don't think this is like acne so bad youneed to see a dermatologist. If you have an STD, you could have bad smellydischarge. And that's all the more likely if you have sores or bad itching or coloreddischarge. You can have white or grey discharge, I think,and it isn't anything that serious. If you have whitish or grey discharge thatlooks like cottage cheese, you have a yeast infection. Fortunately, the fishy odor goesaway once you treat it. I don't think I've even seen cottage cheese. If you've seen yogurt, you can use that.
Internally or externallyé There are folk cures of putting yogurt upthere, but really, just eat more of it, and if that doesn't work, get an over the counteryeast medication. Once you're cured, the odor will go away. Except I don't smell a fishy odor. That rules out trichomoiasis. That's quite a mouthful. No wonder they callit trich for short. Trich can cause a musty smell too, plus burningand itching.
I've had irritation but don't want to sayit is that. You can have bacterial infections cause amusty or fishy smell too. And unlike an STD, you can get it all by yourself. How do I get rid of ité Have the find out what you have andoffer a treatment for it. I could douche to clean down there and eliminatethe odor. Actually, douching causes the pH down thereto shift in ways that facilitate more bacterial growth, and it doesn't help if there's aninfection or yeast.
So covering up the smell today could makeit worse tomorrow. You can try washing down there several timesa day with antibacterial soap, wear loose cotton underwear and clean thoroughly afteryou pee or poop. I know what leaking pee smells like, and that'snot this. And antibacterial soap can be harsh. So mix baking soda in the bathwater you useor apple cider vinegar in your bath soak, though with the vinegar, you can do that daily. I suppose smelling like pickles is betterthan how I smell now. And the vinegar thing you can say is froma health fad without saying what it is treating.
The other hygiene steps you can take includechanging out pads often and not leaving tampons in too long. I know that can cause bacterial growth ifnot toxic shock syndrome. There are over the counter remedies for yeastand minor bacterial overgrowth, but if those don't work, talk to the . If only because over the counter treatmentsfailing to work prove that I have to.
