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 is Bleaching My Underwear
My vaginal discharge is bleaching my underwear. That can happen when you have an ammonialikedischarge. That doesn't tell me what causes it or howto cure it. Your vagina usually maintains an acidic pH. I really don't know what it is supposed tosmell like, so I can't tell you if it smells very different. The ammonia like smell can be similar to thatlike pee. I am not peeing in my pants.
If you are dehydrated, the ammonia in theurine can get concentrated and make things smell even more strongly, even a few drops.And some women do mistake a leaky bladder for vaginal discharge. I know women often use light days menstrualpads for bladder leakage, but that would stain my underwear yellow not white, and I knowwhat pee smells like. Bacterial vaginosis is a common cause of avagina that smells like ammonia. The odds you have that are higher if you have itching,burning a fishy smell, grey or offwhite discharge. All the discharge is off white.
During your fertile time, it becomes thinnerand white, normally. I'm not paying attention to what normallyhappens except that my underwear sometimes turns white after I wash it, right where thevaginal discharge was in contact with it. If you have a bacterial vaginal infection,you can try over the counter treatments, or you need to talk to the . I don't have symptoms that seem like an infection. It can cause bleaching, though, when the badbacteria turn nitrogen into ammonia, creating the smell and discoloration.
What else can do thisé Next I'd have to ask about your diet. It's healthy, so don't blame this on junkfood or too much sugar. And if I had diabetes, I'd get more yeast infections and sugarysmellingurine. If you eat a lot of nitrogen rich vegetableslike broccoli and asparagus, you can get that ammonia smell in the vagina. I don't need yet another reason to not eatasparagus, and you can have a healthy diet without that.
If you're doing a high protein diet for weightloss, eating a lot of foods like eggs, meat and dairy with high nitrogen levels can causethe ammonia in the urea to build up. That would be ammonia smelling pee, not vaginaldischarge. The ammonia smell can get into your skin andexcreted as sweat, and depending on how you work out, the chemicals can build up therewhile it evaporates off your arms and legs. And I thought a rich sweat odor was the worstI could worry about. I've heard of vaginal discharge turning bleachywhen someone had polycystic ovaries or another hormonal disorder. Getting that under controlor eliminating gluten and high sugar foods
helps. For all the reasons one might say a glutenfree diet helped their wardrobe, this was never on the list. Everyone can brag about dresses fitting betterand old jeans actually fitting without a muffin top, but few people admit anything about lacyunderwear except maybe that they are wearing it. Just having some ways I could wear the blackones without them going gray in odd places would be progress.
