Is Vaginal Odour a Sign of STD?

Is Vaginal Odour a Sign of STD?

Most women have their own distinct smell below the belt. It might be a little embarrassing to know that there is a feminine odor, sometimes foul, in the private parts of a lady. But, it is true that this smell can be a cause of concern as well. Vaginal odour is a symptom for sexually transmitted diseases like chlamydia and gonorrhea. Besides, a combination of factors including infection of the vaginal tract, unhygiene, gland secretions, sweating and improper clothing are responsible for vaginal odour.

Common reasons for vaginal odour:

  1. Bacterial vaginosis: It is a very common phenomenon. Vagina contains bacteria, which are produced there naturally. Bacterial vaginosis refers to bacterial overgrowth. It leads to vaginal odour. Most women experience this condition at least once during their lifetime, especially in the reproductive years. Though the exact cause behind its occurrence is unknown, it can occur due to having unprotected sex or frequent douching.
  2. Yeast Infection: The odour caused due to yeast infection is not very strong. But it has other symptoms like white vaginal discharge and itching. The discharge looks like cottage cheese and is caused due to the excess growth of yeast named Candida. There might be a burning sensation at the time of having sex or urination.
  3. Sexually transmitted diseases: Vaginal odour is a symptom for STDs like chlamydia and gonorrhea.
  4. Vaginal odour can intensify after having sex: It can also be caused due to inflammation of the pelvic region.

When is vaginal odour a signal for STDs?

Vaginal odour is normal, but you need to watch out for other symptoms to be sure that whether or not you are infected with STDs. If you have vaginal discharge, painful urination and difficulty in having sexual intercourse, there is a possibility of developing STDs. In case of STDs, the discharge is bloody or brown in colour.

There are many options avialble for abortion both with medicine and surgical. Abortion by the way of medicine may also be possible. But these need to be taken with medical supervision and prescription. All self medications are dangerous. Doctor -gynaecologist is the best person to help you in this situation. Please go and talk to a good gynaecologist. Doctor has surely got the solution to your problem. Do not consume any medicine without doctor advise and prescription. These could be very very dangerous.

I am going to have sex with call grl. Dnt knw whether she had HIV or not. Can I do mouth to mouth kissing with her.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Having sexual relation with a partner who is supposedly having multiple sexual partners can be potentially unsafe, no matter what way you do it. By the way, kissing does not cause hiv infection unless the oral cavity or lips have injuries or infected saliva is transferred in large amounts. However some other sexually transmitted diseases can spread through the oral route.

It is 95% effective within 24 hours of unprotected sex, so she has very less chance of getting pregnant, which rarely happen. There is only one method which is more effective than this which is copper t insertion, which is 99% effective, but it is invasive procedure and not recommended for unmarried girls.

Hi Doctor My wife is pregnant. Thanks a lot to God, she was quite scared about it. My wife had her last period starting from 6th March 2016 after that she had taken Rubella IGG vaccination on 23rd March 2016. She tested to be pregnant on 25th April 2016. Though doctor suggested that we should not connive within one month from taking vaccination [Rubella], we found out that mostly the pregnancy is due to an unprotected intercourse on 18th March 2016. We don’t know now what effect of the Rubella vaccination will incur on the baby. Kindly advise whether it is safe to have the baby in this circumstances. [Though our doctor said it is ok and there will be no consequences of the vaccination.] Our doctor also suggested initial Sono for her [my wife]. Here is the report: - SONOGRAPHY OF OBSTETRIC Real time ultrasound examination of the gravid uterus show presence of a single well defined intrauterine gestational sac. Foetal echoes and poles are seen. Foetal cardiac activity is seen. Yolk sac is seen. Good choriodecidual reaction is seen. There is no evidence of bleed. Internal os is closed. G. Sac measures 2.2 cm corresponds to 7 W 1 D. CRL measures 4 mm corresponds to 6 W 1 D. Evidence of few septation seen in G. Sac. Average is 6 W 1 D. EDD is 16.12. 2016 IMPRESSION: SINGLE LIVE INTRAUTERINE PREGNANCY OF 6 W 1 D. ADVICE: FOLLOW UP AFTER 10 DAYS. Kindly if possible let me know what above details means. We’ll see doctor shortly but before that I just want to have your opinion on this.

Pregnancy is to be avoided for 3 month after Rubella vaccination as studies have shown that there is higher chance of foetal abnormality. It is impossible to say with certainity that this baby will or will not have abnormality as some are functional and can not be diagnosed by Ultrasonography. Normally any medical advise is from statistical data and one can not have exact data for absolute similar picture i.e. Vaccination after 5 days of intercourse resulting into pregnancy. So only general advise can be given from first sentence mentioned in my reply and that is not to take chance of abnormality to terminate pregnancy, however one can always take chance otherwise.

Hello doctor my uterus was removed and just it took before 3 weeks but after that there was a very severe pain, so when we started scanning we found that there are 3 milligrams of stones in kidney, so what we can do and what r the foods I can have to remove it? Can you suggest me please?

BAMS

Hi, First and foremost thing is, drink 3-4 litres of water per daysothat it helps to flush out small stones along with urine. Use banana plant stem as a vegetable 3-4 times a week which helps to breakup and dissolve the kidney stones. Drink tender coconut and lemon juice everyday. Avoid tomatoes, spinach, cabbage, brinjat, cucumber, groundnuts, cahew, etc. food which are rich source of calcium salts. Take cap Renali 1 cap 3 times a daycontinuously for 3 months.

Brown Bread Vs White Bread Vs Whole Grain?

Brown Bread Vs White Bread Vs Whole Grain?

Be it burgers, bagels, muffins, sandwiches or simple toasts, bread has made headway into the diets of a huge portion of the populace. Although a staple diet for many since time immemorial, the consumption of bread has increased extensively in the recent past. But, which type of bread should we intake to incur the best health impacts is a question that bothers many. The general assumption is that the wholegrain variety is the best alternative. However, the barrage of marketing tactics makes it impossible to distinguish the best variety from the others. 

There are a whole lot of myths surrounding the best variety of bread and you must choose wisely before settling for one particular type. It is expedient to look beyond the overt appearance or the name of the bread, one needs to be wary of the ingredient before taking a call.

Mostly, white bread is made out of refined flour which is often striped off essential nutrients and fibers. To worsen the situation, white bread is often bleached with certain chemicals to enhance its appearance.
Certain assumptions deem brown bread as the healthier option. Unfortunately, it isn't true always. More often than not, brown bread is simply white bread with artificial coloring added to it or is caramelized. They essentially add no surplus nutritional value.

Similarly, multigrain bread can often mislead the consumers about its health impacts. Unlike whole wheat bread, multigrain breads are usually chemically treated with softened grains. This does not effectively recover the lost nutrients of the bread.

Whole wheat bread has more pronounced health benefits. It contains more wheat germ and fibers in comparison to the more processed varieties of bread. Having evaded the toxic additives, it has relatively healthier effects on our blood sugar levels.

As you realize that the bread that you eat does not necessarily affect your health favorably, wisdom lies in seeking out the least harmful variety. In that context, rye bread or spelt bread contains greater amount of minerals. Besides, bread made from barley, oats and millets have greater mineral content than the commercially hybridized varieties and promote better health.

There's some misunderstanding. Progesterone from 14 th day for 15 days will not help you get pregnant. This hormone is given once conception occurs, test is positive and we need to retain the pregnancy, save it from miscarriage. Get back to your doctor and lead a normal life minus hormones.
