Vaginal Discharge - Complications and Risks Associated with it

Vaginal Discharge -  Complications and Risks Associated with it

Vaginal discharge is a normal physiological phenomenon, in which the consistency of vaginal discharge varies throughout the cycle. Healthy vaginal discharge is clear or white in colour, with normal and non-offensive odour. Sometimes right before menstruation, your vaginal discharge may hold a brownish tinge.

The consistency of the discharge varies mostly on the hormonal changes in the body. When the levels of oestrogen are low, the cervical mucus that is liberated as discharge may be perceived as sticky and thick. When the oestrogen levels rise up, the discharge becomes wetter, more stretchy and clearer. Also, after ovulation, the consistency becomes thicker again.

When should you worry about the vaginal discharge?

  1. Greenish, greyish or absurdly brownish in colour

  2. When the discharge appears thicker than normal

  3. When the discharge is more than normal

  4. When it smells absurd like fishy or rotten meat like smell

  5. Pus like discharge

  6. White with cottage cheese like discharge

  7. When the discharge is associated with bloody discharge and burning sensation, rash or soreness.

Diseases caused by vaginal discharge

  1. Yeast Infection: The vaginal discharge is cottage cheese like and may be associated with itching of the vulva. This is also called as thrush. It can be treated easily with antifungal medications such as Fluconazole or Cotrimoxazole.

  2. Vaginitis: Yellowish offensive discharge, which may be profuse, associated with itching and abdominal pain.

  3. Trichomoniasis: This disease is asymptomatic in most cases and you may notice purulent discharge.

Emergency pill should not be taken routinely as it disrupts the hormonal cycle, may be delaying it or putting a total stop which will lead to difficulty in conceiving in future.

Symptoms and Treatments of Chancroid

MD
Sexologist, Srinagar
Symptoms and Treatments of Chancroid

What is Chancroid?

Chancroid is caused by the bacteria Haemophilus ducreyi. The bacteria usually attacks tissues and produce open sores which are termed as ulcers or chancroids. Both men and women are affected and the sores are usually found close to the external reproductive organs.

The ulcer might bleed and weep which produces contagious fluid. This can spread the bacteria during vaginal, anal, or oral sex. It can also spread from skin contamination. Thus it is a type of a venereal disease. Chancroids can be prevented by practicing safe sex practice.

Symptoms of Chancroid:

As both men and women can have chancroid, the symptoms may vary in both, but the initial symptoms begin one day to several weeks after contamination with the bacteria.

Symptoms in Men: A red, small bump on the genitals which usually changes to an open sore in a day or two. There can be ulcers on any area including the scrotum and penis.

Symptoms in Women: There might be 4 or more red bumps on the labia (folds covering the female genitals), thighs and between labia and anus. Once the bumps become open or ulcerated, they lead to a painful and burning sensation especially during bowel movements and urination.

Common Symptoms in Men and Women

The following symptoms can be seen:

  1. The ulcers vary in size from 1/8 to 2 inches.

  2. Ulcers present with having a soft center which is gray to yellowish ray, while the edges are sharp and defined.

  3. There is pain while urinating and sexual intercourse.

  4. Presence of swelling in the groin area (this is the area where the thigh and the lower abdomen meet).

  5. In case the lymph nodes are swollen, they might break and lead to abscesses or pus collections. that often drain

Diagnosis of Chancroid:

Diagnosing of chancroid usually involves the collection of samples of the fluid which drain from sores. These samples are then sent to the laboratory for further investigations. Diagnosis through blood test is not possible yet. The doctor might also examine and assess the lymph nodes of the groin for pain and swelling.

Treatments of Chancroid:

Chancroid can be treated successfully with medication. The infection usually goes away without any treatment, but the medication only helps to accelerate the treatment with minimum scarring involved.

  1. Treatment through Medication: Antibiotics are usually prescribed by the doctor to kill the bacteria responsible for the ulcers. Also, antibiotics reduce the chances of scarring.

Treatment through Surgery: In this the abscess of the lymph nodes which are painful and large can be drained. This decreases the pain and swelling, but might lead to slight scarring as the sore heals. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

If you are having sex with single partner then do not worry. Otherwise if you suspect someone is suffering from hiv then you need to go for tests.

If you see two pink lines one at c and another at t that means you are pregnant, i. E result is positive. If you see only one pink line at c that means test is negative. If you do not see any line, it means test is invalid. Either kit has expired, or proper urine sample is not taken.

I have had sex without condom with three different girls in last 6 months. I have no bad symptoms yet but I am worried now. Should I consult a doctor? Do I need to do some test? Any comments would be helpful.

Hello lybrate user, yes consulting a doctor would be a best option because he/she can trace a useful history from you for diagnosis purpose. You can have std (sexually transmitted disease) profile done including hiv elisa, hbsag, hcv, vdrl, hsv igg and igm & urine test, for hiv elisa, 3 months should be there otherwise go for hiv rna test. Always, use condom. It is best protection.

Multiple tiny follicles spread out throughout the ovary are antral follicles and their numbers indicate good ovarian reserve. In each cycle around the 15th day one follicle has grown sufficiently to ovulate. If there is doubt about ovum quality you can go for amh and fsh tests. Otherwise any gynecologist can give you advice on how to conceive naturally.

Since you are already on oral contraceptive pills so the chances of getting pregnant is very unlikely or almost nil, if pill taken correctly.

What was the last menstrual period date - 20th July? As the chances of getting pregnant is very less (as per your statement), but repeat it one more time. Give me details related to your problem and associated symptoms, your nature, likings/ dislikings, appetite, thirst, etc.
