Brief Answer:
Get Smear analysis/culture of discharge done.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,

Thanks for your query.

you have not mentioned if the discharge is milky white or water colored; whether her gynecologist had ever asked for analysis and culture of the discharge to determine the culprit organism.

Milky white discharge is usually due to fungal infection, while watery discharge due to protozoal infection.

Consult your gynecologist and discuss my opinion with her/him. If the tests reveal fungi/protozoal infection, appropriate anti-fungal/anti-protozoal course for AN APPROPRIATE DURATION, will stop the discharge. May I mention here that, similar discharge can also occur in TB of uterus.

Further, a positive PCR TB test does not indicate an active tubercular disease. However, if the disease is indeed active and the reproductive system (uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries) is involved too, then, the status of the reproductive organs has to be evaluated (post-TB cure) to determine the extent of damage to interior of the uterus, fallopian tube and ovaries. If these (particularly, the interior of uterus) are normal, you can safely go in for IVF.

Fond Regards,

Dr. Rakesh Karanwal

Hi I am a 43 year old Indian married women with two kids of age 14 and 10, I have a history of hormonal imbalnce, Strong PMS & irregular periods through out, otherwise no other health problem, one year back I have removed Mirena because of continuous bloating in abdomen and tenderness and pain in breast, no other side effects during 5 years of usage.8 days back I have gone through my first D&C because of 7 weeks unwanted pregnancy due to contraceptive failure. During the screening I am detected with a fibroid sized 2.4X1.6 Cm in in the anterior myometrium of the uterus . Please suggest me an oral contraceptive which can reduce my PMS as well and can support my age and newly discovered Fibroid. I have heared about Yasmin or Yaz with anti bloating properties, Please suggest, I want to consult an Indian Dr. due to availability of medicines.
