Is getting white discharge with occasional foul smell over a long period of time normal ?

Hi, I am 19 years old and have had discharge for over a year but have been too scared to go get checked. It is a white thick discharge followed sometimes by an odour. I also get pains around my ovaries sometimes. I do go for my physicals yearly and get pap tests aswell as the normal blood work done. Can you please help me I am scared !

Hi ,I m 18. I started my first period when I was in the 6th grade. Once I had my first period I started to have a clear/white discharge with a weird smell everyday. I asked doctors about it and they told me it was normal. Over the years I was put on birth control last year about may. I was very sexual active during the summer of 2015.. And we barley used protection. After my last visit in December to the doctor my blood was drawn to be tested for any STD. It came out negative. But what made me nervous was that last month my vagina became very itchy and I still had the discharge. I then had took a pill for a yeast infection I bought from Walmart. It stopped the itching but the discharge still continues. I have stopped taking my birth control for two months and I was wondering could this have been a side affect ? Or could I really have something other than a regular discharge

Hi since I was 15 I am now 31 Id go to the bathroom and when I wipe myself there d be a lot of beige/neutral colored specs on the tissue from the outside of my vag coming from the inside of my vag also I smell like skunk and my underwear are as if bleached after the first wear this has been happening off and on for over 15 yrs. I visit the gynecologist as I should and they never detected anything through the years I always had a normal Pap smear with the exception of occasional urinary infections or yeast infection which were treated it s as if whatever is wrong with me can t be detected. I put my symptoms in online the closest thing I came to was BVD I think that s what it was called so I told my doc that the last time I went then all of a sudden that culture came back as yes BVD n they treated me for it but it s still happening. What is wrong with me??? And what do I do to cure it??? I could take a shower and a couple hrs later it s back smelling like skunk and I m wiping nasty particles when I use the bathroom

Well I have developed these bumbs on the outer side of my vagina. They are not genital warts because I am a virgin. They aren t gross looking either. They are red and some look like pimples. They are on my butt too a little bit. They are itchy and when i itch them they hurt. My dads girlfriend said it could be from shaving and a mixture of wearing pads. So for the last two days I have been wearing tampons but the bumps are still there and still itchy. I read some things and girls said pads are causing them to have like chemical burn, but these loads haven t ever bothered me this much. So I don t know what it is or what to do. What do you think?

Hello. I had a leep procedure done without my doctor doing a colpo. She mentioned that she will do the colpo during the leep procedure and that I need to have it done anyway because I came back at high grade HPV. She cut off a huge chunk of my cervix in which all of it was normal tissue. Now I m having all kinds of sharp pains in my pelvix, pain during intercourse and weird periods that stay on for about two weeks. I went to another obgyn who stated that this doctor should not have done the leep without doing the colpo first to see if it was even necessary. Do I have a lawsuit and what can I do about this?
