Vaginal Discharge - Can IUDs Cause It?

MBBS, DNB - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Vaginal Discharge - Can IUDs Cause It?

There are certain glands in the vaginal walls and uterine cervix of a woman, which cleanse the vagina by producing a small amount of fluid. This clear or milky white coloured vaginal discharge is normal for a healthy woman if it doesn’t smell unpleasant. But if you observe that the colour, consistency, odour or amount of your vaginal discharge differs from usual, it may indicate an infection or a disease.

Here are 6 common factors behind abnormal vaginal discharge.

1. Bacterial vaginosis
Bacterial vaginosis is a medical condition characterised by agray discharge, which has a lingering fish-like odour. Moreover, if you experience irritation and burning sensation in the vagina, which is increased by intercourse, it’s a strong indication of bacterial vaginosis.

2. Yeast Infection
It often happens that your vaginal area’s natural bacterial balance is disturbed due to certain factors such as use of antibiotics, decreased immunity, stress, uncontrolled diabetes or consumption of excessive sugary foods. This results in yeast overgrowth in the vagina, known as simply yeast infection or candidiasis. It’s characterised by a thick and whitish-grey discharge from the vagina.

3. Gonorrhoea
Caused by the bacteria Neisseria Gonorrhoea, this sexually transmitted disease (STD) is an infection, which causes vaginal discharge of an intense odour. Other symptoms of this disease include feeling of pain while urinating, chills, fever and irregular discharge of menstrual fluids. If left untreated, gonorrhoea can transform into a pelvic inflammatory disease and can even lead to infertility.

4. Genital Herpes
Genital herpes, a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that leads to formation of small watery blisters on the vaginal area, and causes irritation, itching and pain while having intercourse or urinating, may also be the cause of a vaginal discharge of watery texture.

5. Atrophic Vaginitis
After menopause, there’s a considerable decrease in oestrogen levels of the body along with the occurrence of changes in tissues of the vaginal cavity. This medical condition, known as atrophic vaginitis, can lead to a watery vaginal discharge, which can sometimes get bloody. Some other symptoms of this disease are vaginal inflammation and thinning or atrophy of tissues.

6. Infected IUD
In some situations, it may happen that the intrauterine device (IUD- a form of contraceptive) inserted in the body of a woman can get infected. This results in a purulent discharge (pus) from the vagina. Getting the IUD removed as soon as possible is the best thing to be done in this situation.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Mr. lybrate-user Kumar, Thanks for the query. When a person is on treatment with adequate dose of Levothyroxine, then TSH values is maintained <3 mU/L, at that all the symptoms of hypothyroidism are in check. Since her TSH is now 6.05 mU/l, symptoms are bound to reappear. So she needs to increase the dose. To calculate the dose following details are needed: T4, & TSH values, weight and height of the patient. Thanks.

High triglycerides and cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. Garlic,. Cod liver oil. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

Fasting Sugar of 210 is extremely high. If this is happening inspite of taking medicine, then it means the diet is not proper. Please make sure he avoids foods with high 'Glycemic Index' # Foods to Completely Avoid - White Rice - Potatoes - Sugars - Biscuits - Sweets - Colas - Juices - White Breads - Corn Flakes - Banana - Mango - Grapes - Fried Foods - Full cream milk - Ghee - Butter etc. # # Foods to take >> Papaya, Mosambi, Multigrain Atta roti without Ghee, Brown Rice, Oats, Cucumber, Dals, Rajma, Vegetables, Skimmed Milk, Almonds etc. %% Should eat every two hours - light snacks /meals. $$ Overall he has to reduce weight, go for long walks, reduce stress and improve lifestyle. $$ He can also do Pranayam and Meditation which will help him. If his Sugar levels don't come down, its better you consult a doctor. However I can tell you that the best way to reduce Sugar levels is through natural means. Other methods are very costly and painful.

Why Diabetics must Have Wheat Sprouts, Daily!

Why Diabetics must Have Wheat Sprouts, Daily!

Wheat sprouts benefits for diabetics

It is very important to keep blood sugar levels in check for diabetics. As most of the grains contain high carbohydrates, diabetes patients should choose the grains in their diet carefully.

Whole wheat is one of the best grains for diabetics.

Sprouted wheat grains contain high protein and fibers. They are lower in carbohydrates and calories than the non-sprouted wheat. Wheat sprouts also have a low glycaemic index which means they metabolize slowly in our body and do not cause a sharp increase in blood sugar levels. Sprouting also increases the value of grains making them rich in vitamin c and b complex.

Moreover, wheat sprouts also maintains cholesterol and blood sugar level, the two very important factors for diabetics.

Prathyushaji, First thing is to take adequate dose of thyroxine so that hypothyroidism is fully controlled. When on treatment TSH level should be between 3 to 4 milli units,that shows good control and helps in controlling all the symptoms. There is nothing like perfect diet, it has to suit your ideal body weight, extent of exercise that you do. Your body weight should be about 55 kgs, so diet should be planned based on that weight and amount of exercise that you undertake. In hypothyroidism you should avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, radish, mustard and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti.

Tingling burning numbness in feet are signs of neuropathy. Gradully it may lead to loss temp sensation, vibration and touch sensations. Claw fingers gradully appears as neuropathy progresses. Calosities, bunions appears as pressure points of feet changes. Calosities may lead to neuropathic ulceration. Ecosprin is blood thinner. Normally diabetics have extensive atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis which diminish blood flow to feet. Diabetes patients have more viscous blood due to high sugars. Thick blood is more prone to get clotted. Keeping sugar levels under control and regular physical activity will help.

Treatment for hypothyroidism is giving thyroxine tablets. And dose are according to level of thyroid for life time. Avoid bad habits . Avoid stress. Some Relax during work. Go for walk, Take plenty of water, high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. flax oil, Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, avoid oily foods,junk foods, go for walk. Do Tests every 3 to 6 months. And consult doctor on time.

I am suffering from diabetics since one year and I am not able to move and do my works alone.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I am suffering from diabetics since one year and I am not able to move and do my works alone.
Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. It is a difficult task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform me) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & life style. For diabetes, hypertension (high BP) and many long-term illness control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance... if you keep in touch personally.

Greetings for the day, Tulsi leaf is ok but for honey you need to check the quality, if it's organic raw honey then you can use it. Still I would advice to avoid honey instead stevia can be used as sweetener.
