hi,, your vaginal discharge is grey or develops a strong fishy smell, particularly after sexual intercourse, you could have bacterial vaginosis (BV). BV is an imbalance in the normal bacteria found in your vagina. It does not usually cause itching or irritation.
Like thrush, BV is very common and is not sexually transmitted. It is easily treated with antibiotics. See your doctor.
In diagnosing bacterial vaginosis, it is important to exclude other serious infections, such as gonorrhea and Chlamydia.
At present, it seems to be that a combination of multiple bacteria must be present together for the problem to develop. Bacterial vaginosis typically features a reduction in the number of the normal hydrogen peroxide-producing lactobacilli in the vagina. Simultaneously, there is an increase in concentration of other types of bacteria, especially anaerobic bacteria (bacteria that grow in the absence of oxygen). As a result, the diagnosis and treatment are not as simple as identifying and eradicating a single type of bacteria. Why the bacteria combine to cause the infection is unknown




both the partners will require treatment.

Hi,
It’s seems to be from your symptoms, that you are suffering from any internal infection, as your are using cu-T from last 2.5 yrs, this infection may be due to CU-T, it’s advisable that you remove it for time being and after treatment if you want you can move for a new one,avoid contact during treatment.also consult treatment for your husband with the same doctor.

Dear Deepsihkha,excessive dryness could be due to some hormonal imbalance.Cu t is nothing do with it.As per your complain the dryness is significant.Lubrication during sex is natural and it is related to your excitement,so try spend more time in foreplay and use some lubrication substance for time being,even condom is a good option as it is lubricated.But you need some examination and treatment also apart from this,so please be in touch with your doctor.bye.

Hi,

Your symptoms suggest that you may be suffering from a bacterial/fungal infection. You need a prescription for an appropriate antibiotic or anti fungal medication. It is advisable to get your copper-T removed as the presence of a foreign body makes it difficult to eradicate any infection.

You can opt for some other method of contraception for some time.

Hi doctor, I m a 13 year old girl, and I ve been experiencing this fishy odor in my vagina for quite some time now. I got tested for any possible infections by my OBGYN , but they couldn t seem to find anything. This confused me because I was sure that the odor had to be coming from something. Then I did some research and found out I have smegma. I m keeping up with my daily hygiene , washing my vagina daily, but even though the build up of smegma is starting to lack, the smell is still very strong, and I am really bothered by it. I have a fear that the smell will stay, because I have been trying to wash out my vagina constantly, but it keeps coming back. Is there anything you can suggest that will get rid of the smell? Thank you!

My name is Lindsey. I m 21 going on 22 years old and weigh abou 230 lbs. at 5 ft. tall. I had kidney reflux as a child and so did my sister, and cousin. I have a family history of kidney problems. My aunt has kidney disease, my grandma just had a non cancerous tumor removed from her bladder and my mother found that she has blood in her urine. My question is that some days I have to urinate very frequently, but most days its just normal. I have noticed for a while that after I urinate and empty my bladder I feel like my bladder is empty and i m done urinating, however I can sit right back down on the toilet after being done or a minute later and have a few more drops of urine that I need to get out. There has also been a few times when I go to urinate and have to go very badly that I will sit down to urinate and its like there is a hesitation to at first like it won t come out for a second or two then it finally will. I will also add that I never have burning when urinating. I also have pitted edema on both of my lower legs its just a little worse on one side than the other, but it s not in my feet or ankles. So is this all normal or should I see a urologist?
