Vaginal Discharge After Hysterectomy
I need your advice on vaginal discharge afterhysterectomy. It certainly shouldn't include blood, sinceyou can't have a period anymore. I know any blood after a hysterectomy meanssomething is broken, well bad. But I've heard there could be some. Brown vaginal discharge for a couple of weeksafter a hysterectomy is normal. I thought it would only last a few days. The red bloody discharge as incisions healis only a few days, while the brown ied blood can leak out over weeks.
So even without a period, I have to wear maxipads for another month or two. Don't use tampons. I know, they recommended against that, evenwith the expected discharge. If you lift anything heavythe six weeksafterward and get a rush of blood, get to the emergency room because you tore something. They gave me the same advice as when you havea kid â€“ don't lift anything heavier than a newborn. You can have bleeding because you tore thingshaving sex too soon after the hysterectomy
too. Let's just say surgery and vaginal dischargelike this are the exact opposite of the mood required for that to happen. Any spotting with a bad odor, though, is areason to see a . Even if it is a really bad yeast or bacterial infection, it needsto be treated. So the standard yeast infection with a beersmell is really bad right now. Yes. And a thick white curdish material comingout from an infection is also really bad. What other discharge should I be on the lookoutforé
Any thick yellow ainage is a possible infectionof the surgical wound, so you need to see the about that. Ditto if you can'tpee or poop. I'd certainly see a about not beingable to go to the bathroom. A warning sign is when it hurts to do so. They tell you to have laxatives and lots offiber to reduce the straining down there. If it burns when you pee, that's a urinarytract infection, but it could mean other bacteria arethe incisions. And green and yellowdischarge from the vagina means there definitely is.
So even though I can't have kids, I stillget a few more weeks of looking at the multicolored diaper pad insert. You are supposed to talk to the anytime there is bleeding heavier than light spotting and any discharge that has a badodor. Ifdoubt, ask the doc.
My Vaginal Discharge Smells Like Fish
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.
