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 dinnermy 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 synome. Yes, and rotted fish smells means you havethe vaginosis or severe yeast infection, plus the bacteria that can cause toxic shock synome.
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.
Vaginal Discharge During Pregnancy
I want your opinion of vaginal discharge duringpregnancy. If you have a sudden white mucus plug comeout, you're about to end the pregnancy and go into labor. I'm not that far along. The vaginal discharge will go back to whiteand thick after you ovulate. If you conceive, there may be ops of blood mixed in, or justbrown or orange streaksthe discharge. I'm a little farther along than that. The vaginal discharge usually increases involume during pregnancy, starting after implantation.
However, it remains white and thick throughoutunless something is wrong. I know any red bloodvaginal dischargeis dangerous, whether a sign of a miscarriage or uterine tear or something else only the will know. When you are pregnant, any bleeding is a reasonto go to the ER. Fortunately, I'm not seeing that type ofvaginal discharge. You'll normally see more white and thickvaginal discharge. Some women wear menstrual pads when pregnant to contain it. That sounds fishy to me. I didn't thinkI'd need diapers until after I had the kid.
If the vaginal discharge smells fishy or likevinegar, you have a yeast infection. I can't even take a pain reliever rightnow. What do I do about a yeast infectioné It is safe to use over the counter yeast infectiontreatment when pregnant, and you may need several. Pregnancy throws off your pH balanceand makes yeast infections much more likely. Glad I don't have that fishy smell downthere, then. It is thick and offcolor though. If it is green or yellow, you may have a bacterialovergrowth. That's dangerous during pregnancy. It could make things smell, and you do wantto talk to a about it. However, if
there are any lesions, itching and other signsof a social disease, you have to talk to a . Technically, life is sexually transmitted. A sexually transmitted disease contractedbefore or during pregnancy puts the kid at risk, and it may be flaring up worse whilepregnant because pregnancy compromises the immune system. Yes, I'd talk to the if I was worriedabout it, but I am not. Then you'll just see more white and thickdischarge. It would have increasedvolume
as the cervix thickened and rose up from thelow point after ovulation. But not as high as it would be if I wasn'tpregnant. That's where a lot of the mucus is comingfrom, but know that it will become y if you're dehyated just as when you'renot pregnant.
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 yeastmy own body.
It could also be because you're pregnant.The immune system decreasessome 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 lotionsmy 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. inking 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 levelyoga. You can try over the counter yeast infectiontreatments and diet changes, but if you have more than foura year or it resists treatment,you need to see a .
