Brown discharge and foul smell after period. Pressure in side. Will it affect kidneys?
I got my period on dec 6 and it was gone in three days. On the lat day of my period I thought I had a tampon in but when I won t o hange it , it was not there. I thought I was losing my mind and needed more keep. A day later I started leading lightly and eventually brown discharge and a foul smell was coming from my vagina . I thought t was a yeast infection so I won t to cvs to get meds. When it didn t go away, I called the of who prescribed meds for bacteria infection. Last night while going o the bathroom I pushed out a tampon. It has been in me for to weeks. I feel back pressure slightly on my left side. Can something like this effect you kidneys?
Welcome to HCM.
It might affect, if your urination was or is affected. Otherwise it is unlikely.
For confirmation, it is worthwhile doing blood urea and serum creatinine and scan of the tummy if worried.
