BV is the most common vaginal infectionwomen of childbearing age. Examples of activities that change the normalbacterial balance include douching, taking antibiotics, wearing an intrauterine deviceor IUD, and having unprotected sexual activity. BV is more commonsexually active womenthannonsexually active women, but it is not considered a sexually transmitted diseaseor STD. The main symptom of BV is a thin vaginal dischargethat appears grayish white and smells of fish,
especially after sexual activity. Other symptomsmay include burning when urinating, itching around the outside of the vagina, and irritation.These symptoms may also be caused by another type of infection, so it is important to seea . Many women with BV have no symptoms at all. BV is often diagnosed based on a pelvic examand symptoms, however certain tests can help confirm the diagnosis. BV will sometimes go away without treatment.Your healthcare provider may choose to treat it with antibiotics if your symptoms persist.
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.
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.
