My vaginal discharge smells like fish. I’m assuming this couldn’t possibly be due to a messy fish and chips dinner. No, way more intimate than someone constantly spilling dinner in my 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 by the overgrowth of bacteria naturally down there, you can end up with a fishy odor. How could I have developed that?.
So much douching to remove any odor that you stripped 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 can treat 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 colon cleanse. You know that it is bacterial overgrowth if it 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 poop bacteria that get into the urinary tract and cause a UTI will cause vaginosis too. What’s a reason that doesn’t have to do with a playground being between two sewers? A fishy odor accompanied by a green discharge means you have trichomoniasis. It is sometimes called just trich, pronounced trick. *That I’ve heard of, but I don’t know anything about it.
Trichomoniasis is a protozoan infection, and it causes a sour or fishy smell. Then trich is a sexual disease. Yes, and they can cure it with antibiotics. What else could it be? If it smells like rotted meat down there, you may have forgotten a tampon. That’s what can cause toxic shock syndrome. Yes, and rotted fish smells means you have the vaginosis or severe yeast infection, plus the bacteria that can cause toxic shock syndrome.
Anything on that list necessitates getting to a , and after which, only using ultrathick maxi pads. If the vaginal discharge smells bad and looks like 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 from the store. And any other cause requires talking to a , yogurt or not.
Vaginal Discharge During Pregnancy
I want your opinion of vaginal discharge during pregnancy. If you have a sudden white mucus plug come out, you’re about to end the pregnancy and go into labor. I’m not that far along. The vaginal discharge will go back to white and thick after you ovulate. If you conceive, there may be drops of blood mixed in, or just brown or orange streaks in the discharge. I’m a little farther along than that. The vaginal discharge usually increases in volume during pregnancy, starting after implantation.
However, it remains white and thick throughout unless something is wrong. I know any red blood in vaginal discharge is dangerous, whether a sign of a miscarriage or uterine tear or something else only the will know. When you are pregnant, any bleeding is a reason to go to the ER. Fortunately, I’m not seeing that type of vaginal discharge. You’ll normally see more white and thick vaginal discharge. Some women wear menstrual pads when pregnant to contain it. That sounds fishy to me. I didn’t think I’d need diapers until after I had the kid.
If the vaginal discharge smells fishy or like vinegar, you have a yeast infection. I can’t even take a pain reliever right now. What do I do about a yeast infection? It is safe to use over the counter yeast infection treatment when pregnant, and you may need several. Pregnancy throws off your pH balance and makes yeast infections much more likely. Glad I don’t have that fishy smell down there, then. It is thick and offcolor though. If it is green or yellow, you may have a bacterial overgrowth. That’s dangerous during pregnancy. It could make things smell, and you do want to talk to a about it. However, if.
There are any lesions, itching and other signs of a social disease, you have to talk to a . Technically, life is sexually transmitted. A sexually transmitted disease contracted before or during pregnancy puts the kid at risk, and it may be flaring up worse while pregnant because pregnancy compromises the immune system. Yes, I’d talk to the if I was worried about it, but I am not. Then you’ll just see more white and thick discharge. It would have increased in volume.
As the cervix thickened and rose up from the low point after ovulation. But not as high as it would be if I wasn’t pregnant. That’s where a lot of the mucus is coming from, but know that it will become dry if you’re dehydrated just as when you’re not pregnant.
