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 Urine
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 Poop
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.
