A: Some level of vaginal discharge is normal on a daily basis as the vagina sheds cells and produces fluid needed to clean and provide protection for its delicate skin. You would have observed the difference in the consistency depending on your menstrual cycle.
If this discharge however develops a strange smell, becomes itchy with swelling and pain in the vagina or you notice blood stained discharge, then it is time to see a doctor. Abnormal discharges could be due to candidiasis, pelvic inflammatory disease, sexually transmitted infections or in the case of blood stained discharge, may be cancer etc
Usually, a sample of the discharge is sent for investigation and it will confirm what infection is there, if any, and what drug will be useful in treatment.
Now to toilet disease, this is a favourite subject of mine. I’ve noted time and again that this does not really exist Trust me! Please click on the link below to read my blog post on toilet infections and candidiasis for more on this topic. The post also gives preventive measures for candidiasis.
I suggest that you see your doctor for a sample of this discharge to be taken and sent for analysis and then you can take it from there.
Good night, fabulous people 😀
