Wait: Since there is no smell and if there is no bleeding, you may watch and wait. If you get itching, smell, or bleeding, it would be time to see your doctor. You may use panty-liners to avoid soiling your clothes. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
