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.
Cervical Mucus Just Before Period Starts
I want to know what to expect in cervicalmucus just before period starts. Your cervical mucus alternates between clear,watery and flowing when ovulating to sticky, white and gooey during normal times. And it gets overwhelmed by menstrual fluidwhen I have my period. So what does it normally look like right before I have my periodé If you are about to not have your period dueto pregnancy, you'll probably see heavy mucus and even solid masses. Solid masses and really heavy cervical mucuscan also be a sign of a sexually transmitted
disease. If the cervical mucus is yellow, green orreally smelly, you have an infection; at best, it is severe yeast overgrowth. I know what that smells like. If you are healthy, then the cervical mucuswill start to dry out before your period starts, since the body does not want to waste materialwhen you're about to shed. I've heard there were other signs if I waspregnant. If you were pregnant, you might see dropsof blood mixed in with the cervical mucus
when the embryo implants. Or not, since itmay not be enough to notice. The lack of a period is something I'd notice. The cervical mucus typically becomes drier,stickier and thicker right before your period. It is normally, sticky and thick. Fine, more of the same. What happens after my period startsé It becomes dry or you find no mucus at all,just menstrual shedding. After your period ends, the white cervical mucus starts up,which can make your mix pinkish.
I'd say this sounds disgusting, but thenI saw what newborn diapers looked like. The only standard effect is clear, wateryand clear mucus when you are ovulating, unless you have health problems interfering withovulation. Or contraception that interferes with it. Depending on what you're using for contraception,that can happen. Injectables can kill your period, ovulation and all cervical mucus changes. I am ovulating with my contraceptive method. Then you'll see heavier mucus after youovulate, usually white in color and thicker
than it was before you ovulated. Anything else I might noticeé If you do not see much difference in consistency,you may still see differences in the volume, which usually drops off right before yourperiod. What if it is cloudy or whiteé White is normal unless there is a whole lot,which is pus indicative of an infection. A little brown could mean your period is starting,or you have vaginosis. So anything other than a normal period meansgo to the .
And normal cervical mucus without a periodwhen you expect it means go to the too.
