hello doctor !! i have a problem in my vagina.. as in, it puts out a chunky yellowish discharge after few days of masturbation ... This only happens if i don't wash it off immediately (when masturbating that is).. and then it starts to itch really badly and the discharge becomes worse.. the only way i can stop this, is to wait for my period to start or stop touching my genitals completely. why is this happening doctor??

it is common to have this. even i had this yellow color discharge coming from my nipple when i was pregnant. i had it till i delivered the baby, after that few days later it satrted coming a smilk. my doctor said not to worry is "calostram" or something like that  which babies need to be able to fight against infection.

i think its normal milky fluid only. not to worry. keep the breast clean, this is more than enough.

it is your body preparing food for your baby. breast is preparing milk for your baby. initially it will be like that only. it is not complete milk.the complete milk will come only after delivery of your baby. keep the nipples clean. dont put too harsh soap. use mild cleansers and try keeping them dry.

Hi i feel like I might be pregnant. My period not due for a couple days though. Yesterday I had clumpy but stringy cm which I ve never experienced and I know I do not have a yeast infection . Today it was gone although there was a clear stretchy string of cm in it (its white now as usual in my cycle) I ve been experiencing backaches and nipple tenderness which is also common for me . At work tonight I blacked out and almost passed out which doesn t happen to me! Anything you may know about my description would be very helpful thank you
