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

Bladder issues: leaking pee and a burning sensation during peeing. Dear reader, I am a 17 year old girl experiencing some bladder issues lately. My problems started about 1 1/2 month ago: I noticed I had to go to the toilet a lot, and I also noticed a burning sensation during peeing. I had to change panties quite often as I would find that they got really wet (not because i was aroused, I think it was sticky discharge combined with pee, because it was yellow colored). Also, when I have sex, I constantly have the feeling i have to pee (but that might also be because of the position). Around the time these symptoms occurred I also felt a slightly painful and uncomfortable feeling during sex. I thought I had a bladder infection, but when I tested for that the results came back negative. THen I went to the doctor, who couldn t think of anything else besides a possible yeast infection or STD. I got tested for both, but yet again the results came back negative. The symptoms went away for about a month, however the past few days I noticed that I ve started leaking again. It has come to the point where I have to change panties at least 3 times a day. I noticed that the fluid is very clear and that it is pee. I also feel a burning sensation during peeing and sometimes even when I am just sitting I can just feel some pee leaking out of me. Some extra useful information: -I have been sexually active for some less than 2 years now, have had the same partner all along, never contracted an STD. -Me and my boyfriend have sex without a condom, however I am using birth control pills (have been using then since the start of me becoming sexually active, so almost 2 years now) -Have had a yeast infection a few months ago, had it treated by putting a ball of cream (forgot the name of the thing) inside my vagina for three nights. -I have had a lot of problems with bleeding during intercourse. It started around the 5th time I had sex, and lasted for about 1.5 years. (However, there was a period during the summer of 2011 that I didn t bleed for 2 or 3 months). For the past few months I have not bled, which might have been a result of me changing my birth control pills. -The doctor performed a pap smear on me in April 2011, because of the problems I had with bleeding during sex. the result: I have pap-2 and do have the HPV virus. I am scheduled to undergo another pap smear in November, to see if it has gotten worse or better. -I do perform kegel exercises on a regular basis, and have been doing so even before I started to become sexually active. I do not think that my muscles are the problem. -I did a pregnancy test last month. The result was that I am not pregnant. Thank you for taking the time to try and help me with my problems, I really appreciate it. Also, I would like to note that I live in the Netherlands and English is not my mother tongue. I apologize for any mistakes or unclear explanations, I have tied to state everything as clearly as I could, however I found it a bit difficult. best regards, Roxanne

hi, im 22 years old male, 5'6'', 165 lbs. My medical history is good. i dont have any health problems. im not allergic to anything i know of. i do smoke about 10 ciggerettes a day. i recently found a small cluster smaller than a dime in diameter of coliflower like bumps on my genitals just under my shaft on the sac connecting to the shaft of my penis. my concern is that i have genital warts or a type of hpv. is this a serious problem i have at hand? will these bumps go away? is there a medication to prevent bumps like this in the future? my partner has no idea of my situation and im afraid of rejection by her. is this a normal feeling if i do have a serious issue? how will this affect my sex life? please help im very concerned and thank you.
