I am 58 yrs. young but have not had an intimate partner for 15 yrs. Wasn't interested after leaving my husband.
Now a man has come into my life and our intimacy is usually oral sex. He is 68 and has ED and with the help of Viagra we have had intercourse only a couple of times. Even with the pill he still has issues with maintaining an erection. My problem is I have recently developed a vaginal discharge (thick and dark yellow to brownish in color. No odor) and itching. We have been together for about 3 mo. The discharge started giving me concerns about 3 days ago.

Brief Answer:
Normal natural discharge.

Detailed Answer:

Welcome and thanks for posting your query to the forum.

I can understand your concern for the yellowish to brown discharge since 3 days.

After reading your query and analysing the facts provided by you let me reassure you that the kind of discharge which you are mentioning is most commonly a natural discharge.

As there is no other symptoms along with odourless appearance, makes the discharge to appear normal.

There appears to no role of any Sexually transmitted infection in your case because of no associated symptoms.

If the discharge continues to appear more than a week period then can meet a gynecologist to just check the normality of the genital tract.

I hope these informations will relax you.

Maintain a good hygiene

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear young lady,

Welcome again to the forum and thanks for your follow up.

There can be itching of mild to moderate grade in your case which can either related to stress or due to wet area at vaginal interoitus.

For itching I suggest you following measures:

-You should wear cotton undergarments

- Maintain a good hygiene

- Change your tampons regularly

- Do not sit for long hours

If at all the itching is troublesome then can take loratadine tablet (Claritin) for 1-2 times a day.

Do remember that if the discharge continue for next 4 days then should meet a gynecologist.

I hope these informations will help you.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?

I had colon cancer surgery four years ago. I am 56 years old and about 6'2" and 215 lbs. After surgery my penis was able to stretch to about an inch less than before and getting a full erection was only accomplished with Viagra once and the second time it became painful and my penis was sort of bent when I was able to get a full erection which seems to be rare even with Viagra. I almost never get any kind of an erection in the morning like before surgery, and orgasms are definitely not as intense. Is there anything that can be done to restore my penis to the normal length and to be able to get a full erection?
