What Every Woman Needs To Know…
Vaginal discharge is a fluid made by glands inside the vagina and cervix that carries away dead cells and bacteria. This keeps the vagina clean and helps prevent infection.
Most of the time, vaginal discharge is perfectly normal. The amount can vary, as can odour and colour (which can range from clear to a milky white-ish), depending on the time in your menstrual cycle.
For example, there will be more discharge when you’re ovulating, breastfeeding, or sexually aroused. It may smell different when you’re pregnant or you’ve been letting your personal hygiene slide.
None of those changes is cause for alarm. However, if the color, smell, or consistency seems quite different than usual, especially if you also have vaginal itching or burning, you could be dealing with an infection or other condition.
WHAT CAUSES ABNORMAL DISCHARGE?
Any change in the vagina’s balance of normal bacteria can affect the smell, color, or discharge texture. These are a few of the things that can upset that balance:
▪Use of antibiotics or steroids.
▪Bacterial vaginosis (a bacterial infection more common in pregnant women or women who have multiple sexual partners).
▪Birth control pills.
▪Chlamydia or gonorrhea (STDs), sexually transmitted infections.
▪Douches, scented soaps or lotions, bubble bath, and cleaning practices.
▪Pelvic infection after surgery.
▪Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
▪Trichomoniasis (a parasitic infection typically contracted and caused by having unprotected sex).
▪Vaginal atrophy (the thinning and drying out of the vaginal walls during menopause).
▪Vaginitis (irritation in or around the vagina).
