Vaginal Discharge During Menopause
I need your input on vaginal discharge duringmenopause. When you're going through menopause, you'llhave your period less often or less intensely before it finally shuts off. I know menopause isn't an off switch butmore a slow fade. When you're going through menopause, you'llsee similar shiftsvaginal discharge like white and sticky to y right before yourperiod, but you may not see the clear and slippery phase for ovulation. Because I might not ovulate.
However, when you're going through menopause,there's still a chance you'll get pregnant. And have a kid with a higher risk of healthproblems. Or multiples. As your eggs hit their expirationdate, the body offsets it by releasing multiple eggs. What other vaginal discharge should I expectduring menopauseé If it starts to smell sweet down there, you'reprobably developing diabetes â€“ especially so if the urine smells sweet and looks likesyrup too. A rash of repeated yeast infections can bea symptom of diabetes too.
And your odds of adult onset diabetes go upwith age. What else should I knowé With age, the vaginal discharge goes down,which is why older women tend to need lubriion, since the body doesn't make as much. And while a lack of lubriion and make youmore sensitive to yeast and bacterial infections, using too much lubriion can alter pH levelsand do the same. You'll know you have one of those infectionsby the foul smelling discharge if it is bacterial and the fish smell with yellow and solid massesif yeast based.
Fortunately, I haven't had to do a smelltest to see what is wrong. If you get red or brown vaginal discharge,you'll probably want to talk to a . We already discussed how your period fadesaway at this age. Yes, but red blood that's constant indieslesions or a serious infection, while brown blood can be a period that's not completeor internal bleeding. Okay, that's a reason to talk to the . And just because you don't have to use birthcontrol anymore doesn't mean you don't have to use birth control.
Menopause is all natural birth control. Just because you can't get pregnant anymoredoesn't mean you can't get a sexually transmitted disease anymore. And green, yellowand red vaginal discharge, especially with redness, itching or sores are strong signsof an STD. What a pain. Any discharge with pain means talking to a, too. Whether an STD or fibroids or worse, only the doc could say.
Laci Ladies, what's up, ladiesé Actually, this doesn'tjust apply to ladies. I've gotten so muchemail the past few years of people asking me howto shave their pubes and have basically always just said, quot;Yeah, no, not gonna do that.quot; Reason being that I don'twant to be another one of those forces that pressures people
to shave off their pubic hair. I know when I was younger I felt a lot of pressure to get rid of that shit. And on one occasion, Igot such bad razor burn that I (mumbling) myself at the gynecologist worried that I had herpes. These days I kinda like pubic hair. I get excited by bushes thesize of mount kilimanjaro.
Yeah, I said it, haters gonna hate. And we all know what you gottado about the haters, righté Ignore the shit out of them. Which means that if deepdown if you don't want to shave your pubes, if itjust doesn't interest you, or you get really bad razor burn, or you're lazy, don't do it. I haven't shaved for months but maybe
a few weeks I'll decide, quot;Hey, I want a different hairstyle.quot; In which case, here are some things that I've found to helpyou shave your pubes and avoid the bumpy burnyitchy red nasty horribleness. (gentle music) And before you ever pull out a razor the first thing you wanna dois give yourself a little trim.
Get the hair nice and short. Then hopthe shower with a bath. And soak for five to ten minutes. Then take an exfoliator ora luffa and gently remove the dead skin cells fromthe triangle patch on top. Close shave is the keyto avoid irritation. So, removing all thosedead skin cells first it's gonna help you get a little closer.
So,terms of shaving cream, I like to use the kindthat's a gel to foam. You want something that's not too thin and something that's not too thick. And then your razor. So, your razor shouldbe sharper than mine. And this is where you don't wanna skimp. You wanna have somethingthat's really, really sharp.
