Brief Answer:
It's normal

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
White discharge, which is not associated with itching inthe vaginal pain, burning urination, lower pain abdomen and foul smelling discharge, is normal.
This increases around ovulation time and post ovulation.
This is completely normal and physiological.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Say I m in the kitchen and I ll feel it coming on so I have time to brace myself. I ll set down whatever it is i m holding and get ready.

Hi my names Abby. I have a few questions.well me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex a few weeks back. 2 days after, I got my period. It was a brownish red color and last only 3 days. After that I felt nauseous. I've gotten sick in the past week and have been craving anything sweet. My stomach will growl like I'm hungry but then at the same time I feel like I'm going to get sick. I had some sharp vaginal pains that will last only for a split second. I'm more tired, my back hurts and Im moodier. I have upper stomach cramps and on my sides.Yesterday I started having white vagina discharge that usually never happens. I had a spot of blood on my undies yesterday as well. Could there be a possibility of me being pregnant and having symptoms this fast?

I m having severe vaginal pain. I visited my GYN-OB and he requested and ultrasound. The report states that I have what is called free pelvic fluid mild-to-moderate in the left ovary . My uterus and adexa is otherwise unremarkable. I just had a mymectomy and 3 submucous fibroids out patient procedure 5 weeks ago. What can be done about the free fluid? Does it require surgery? etc.
