What causes excessive vaginal discharge? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
I have White discharge problem from a very long time
sorry about that
Not sure about the reasons and it's been more than 10 years i have this problem
it could be vaginitis
That seems like a chronic vaginitis either fungal or bacterial
You must go for a speculum examination, and see if there is any active infection in there
it can be a combination of Chlamydia, fungal, and bacterial Vaginosis
are you there?
Not sure what it is. Can you explain. I never spoke to anyone about it except once to a doctor but no luck. I want to know more about it like why this happens and what do I need to do
is your age 29?
are you sexually active?
I'm married for 4 months now
in simple terms, this is infection in the inside of vaginal area
Now, this infection can be due to fungal or bacterial or protozoal causes
There are various micro-organisms that can cause this infection
Are you following me?
What is protozoal?
yeah kind of
that is also one microbe
It can be treated by medicine?
This infection happens because of unhygienic conditions
lack of personal hygiene
not washing innerwears thoroughly
not drying them enough in the sun
using the innerwears for long time
having sexual intercourse with a person who is infected
Yes, it can be treated by medicines
Hygiene is what I prefer everytime but
and about intercourse it just started. And I have this problem since I was a child
perhaps, you were not educated about personal hygiene well before
I am sorry about that
You should also not do vaginal douches often
As suggested, you will need a speculum examination for the same
Once infection is confirmed, we can go ahead with the treatment
I usually prescribe my patients Tablet Fas 3 Kit
it takes care of most infections
You want me to start it now or after examination?
I am not prescribing you but you must consult your doctor before taking the medicine
The prescription medicines are given after the cause is exactly made out. Since I haven't physically examined you, it is inappropriate and unethical to prescribe you scheduled drugs. Hence see the doctor for the medicine that you require.
I don't have any doctor in specific yet.
please get one at the earliest
I spoke to you. You still want me to visit a doc about it?
of course, you should visit a doctor before taking any medicine
I'm lil hesitate to talk to anyone.
As you insist, Let me try visiting a Doc.
If you do not contact a doctor, your problem may not be resolved at all
Please help yourself
Do you have any more queries?
Please dont hesitate to ask me
I would be more than glad to help you
I was scared what if it leads to a cancer. This thought made me talk to you
Your thought is right
Chronic infection can lead to cervical cancer
you must be aware of it
Good, you made the courage to talk to me
Thank You So Much. I spoke about it once to a doc before but I've another problem which I never spoke to any Doctor yet before you.
I have haemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids is a common problem
And I heard One my relative had this problem and some how his body got infected
It is not a serious condition
It can be cured medically or surgically
But I've been suffering for 6 years now
I don't wanna go for a surgery.
If you do not undergo the surgery, it will remain like that
Can't it be treated by medicine?
medicines offer only temporary relief, not permanent cure
How long will be the surgery?
less than 2 hours
And how many days One should be in the hospital?
after or before Surgery
it's a day care procedure
you can return home the same day
What do they do? They just cut the extra flesh ?
they cauterise or burn the bleeding vessels
they cut the extra flesh
any precautions that we need to take after that?
and not even a day we need to be at home taking rest?
You should have soft stools for a week until complete healing
For this, stool softeners will be prescribed by your doctor
anything else that you would like to discuss now?
Do you know the average expense for the surgery?
And Speculum Examination?
in private hospital, it is around 5 to 8 thousand
in government hospital, it is free
Speculum examination would cost you 500 INR
How do they test? Is it like Blood test?
Are you asking about the speculum?
no, it is a test where a speculum or an instrument will be put inside your vagina, and the area will be checked visually for any infection
That's all for now I guess.
Thank You So Much
Nice chatting with you
Go to the doctor at the earliest and take care
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
