My vaginal discharge smells like urine. Are you sure you just aren't leaking urineé I don't think so. If you just had a baby, the muscles down thereare tired if not torn from the strain. The end result is greater odds of leaking peewhen you laugh, cough or bend over. No one mentioned thatthe parenting classes. That's because they are less likely to admitit and way more likely to blame it on the diapered crittertheir lap.
What else could be making it smell like urineé A really hard labor where you strain so muchit tears microscopic holesthe vaginathe wall that separates it from the bladder.Then you get urine seeping into the vaginal area. I don't think I'm leaking from the bladder. If you have that type of set of microscopicholes, urine will leak into the vagina even if you're holding the peeanyway. How do you get that fixedé
Surgery. Then again, this is a common problemwhen they do a hysterectomy and don't puta proper floor for the bladder too, butfixing that is surgical as well. I'd like to know what other things couldbe responsible for it so I have solutions other than surgery. It is possible that you are using so muchdouche and clothing so tight that the skin can't breathe that bacteria has caused thepH to shift that badly, but it is rare. I know there are douches you can't use oftenbecause it cleanses so well the good bacteria is washed away. Then you risk a bacterialinfection.
Bacterial infections smell like onion, badfish or garlic. You also have an increased risk of yeast infections, which smell likebeer. I hate to say it, but I have seen enough offeringsto the porcelain god to know the difference between pee, beer and vomitterms of smell. There's also the possibility you are leakingpee into your underwear, and the area still smells like that even after you change clothes. Which is a different reason to talk to the. Or switch to texting to continue the conversationinstead of trying to hold itwhile you
talk. I already text mostly, and I don't waitso long to stop talking that I leak while racing to the bathroom. Then the most likely a bacterial infection,made worse by wearing tight clothes, excessive sweating, and concentrated urine. Then inking water, wear loose clothing andeating yogurt is a start to fixing this. Assuming you don't need antibiotics. I prefer probiotics.
I still think you should take the yogurt orally,rather than sticking it up there and hoping it helps.
My Vaginal Discharge Smells Like Chlorine
My vaginal discharge smells like chlorine. Are you sure you just aren't overbleachingyour launyé No, this problem remains whether I wear tidywhities or not. It can take on a chemical smell if you'veused a lot of condoms. That's called safe sex. It can take on a chlorinelike smell whenyou've used some types of lubricantsaddition to a condom. Then I don't need to be worried about thesmell if it can be traced to some intimate
activities. Some guys' semen smells like bleach or afaint sugary smell. Condom use pretty much precludes that cause. Now if it smells metallic, that is a signblood is mixed with the vaginal fluids. If I had my period, I'd notice the blood. Blood has more of a copper smell, but if there'san infection like something with lesions and a tinny smell, you could have an STD causingthe off smell. I know fresh blood when it isn't the righttime for it is a problem.
And your period is usually dark red or brownby the time it shows up. But it won't have a chemical smell, justmean I need to use real chlorine bleach to clean up. Your body has a natural pH of 7.4. That's a little alkaline. Yes, since it is higher than 7. Conversely,bleach has a very high pH. Yeah, around 12, but your vagina usually putsout an acidic discharge. The vagina's normal pH is between 3.8 and4.5. If you have vaginosis or some sexually
transmitted disease, the pH can go higherthan 4.5. Then the bleachy smell isn't because theoutput is becoming alkaline. No, but an STD can alter its pH and smell,and when your brain doesn't know what it is, it assigns the first chemical that isanything close. If my biochemistry has altered that much,I have a problem. It isn't an alkaline diet; any diet thatalters your biochemistry that much will kill you. However, an STD could alter the chemistrydown there enough to take on a chemical or acidic smell.
What if I said it smells like ammoniaé Then I would say it is vaginosis due to bacterialgrowth, though it could be due to excessive sweating or dehyation and concentrated urinetoo. And I could end up blaming a urinary leak. Or just sweating a lottight pants whileinking caffeine and energy inks instead of water. But at least that's somethingyou can fix by taking a long hot bath to relax.
