A 27-year-old member asked:

Should I be concerned about vaginal discharge in the 2nd trimester?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Aileen Caceres
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes: If you experience vaginal discharge during the second trimester, this may be normal. It is possible that your discharge can be an infection such as a yeast or bacterial vaginosis infection. More concerning though, the discharge can also represent leakage of amniotic fluid that is surrounding your baby. Always check with your doctor if you think you are having vaginal discharge.

There are also some skin conditions liked lichen sclerosis which can cause vaginal itching. Hormone deficiencies from menopause or breast feeding can also cause itching.

A member asked:

I have swimmer's ear and I have water in my ears and used a q-tip and yellow ear wax came out. Is that what's holding the water in?

Probably: The wax will cause water to be retained in your ear canal and lead to the swimmer's ear infection. Unfortunately, removing the waxdoesn't get rid of the infection. You will need to see your doctor and get it checked out.

Expected: There is no normal bleeding pattern on implanon. That's how it works . Some have infrequent others more frequent. Either way it's ok.
