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 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.
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 .
