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 peeweeks. 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 twohard 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.
