Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

which antiviral can be used for clear watery,vaginal discharge after menopause?

Why an antiviral?

Open-uri20120919-27403-buvv0
An antiviral is for stopping viral infections. Just having a clear vaginal discharge doesn't mean there is a need for an antiviral. The primary care doctor or the Ob-Gyn doctor can check to see if there is any infection at all.

Is brown discharge years after menopause normal?

No

Brown discharge suggests light bleeding that is not normal years after menopause. You need a complete exam, possibly ultrasound and biopsy of the linning of the uterus

Im going through the menopause and have a smelly discharge and period pains but havnt had my period yet.. Is this normal?

See your doctor

Menses
Lots of causes of discharge- infections, including stds, but also vaginal chanes if menopause. The medical definition of menopause is one year without periods. It's also unlikely, but possible, for pregnancy to occur in the peri-menopausal period.

how should vaginal discharge look during menopause?

Clear or white

Blood
The normal vaginal discharge is clear or white. After menopause there may be less vaginal discharge due to the lower estrogen levels. Green, gray, or yellow discharge likely means an overgrowth of bacteria, while a lumpy (cottage cheese) discharge is common with a yeast infection. Red, pink, black, or brown discharge is associated with blood and is never normal after menopause.

I have hot flashes. I wake up and soaked in sweat. I have a discharge. Could this be menopause?

Possibly

Hot_flashes
This depends upon your age and hormonal history. These are typical menopausal symptoms and rarely in the 35-50 year old age group are other conditions the cause. If persistent or bothersome, see your OB -GYN to discuss and decide upon treatment.

What causes first time pcos at age 40, cervical erosion and bloody discharge? Could it be cervical cancer relapse or early menopause?

Why wonder?

Cancer
Your gynecologist knows whether to biopsy; if you have had cervical cancer in the past, this might be very much worthwhile.
