Could potentially be: herpes, though I am not sure you are at risk for this. You can see your doctor to have the test performed since you are having symptoms (often itching/burning can occur). Other causes could include allergic irritation from any products you use around your vagina (maxi-pad, detergent from panties, etc). Hope this helps. ...Read more

What does a dark brown discharge after a pelvic exam that later turned into a clear mucus discharge mean?

What does a dark brown discharge after a pelvic exam that later turned into a clear mucus discharge mean?

Bloody discharge: The pelvic exam, especially if it included a pap smear, may have caused a small amount of bleeding from the cervix which then appeared to be a short term brown discharge. The clear mucous discharge was probably normal "fertile mucous". The discharge you are describing is common after an exam and does not mean you have a problem. ...Read more

What could explain a dark brown discharge that later turned into a clear mucus discharge following a pelvic exam?

Taking a pap smear: Scraping the surface of the cervix to take a pap smear sometimes causes a little spotting that you may see in the next few days as a brown discharge. The clear mucous discharge may be a return to normal, especially if you are midcycle and having "fertile mucous". I would not be concerned unless the brown discharge recurs or persists or develops an odor. ...Read more

I have doc's appt soon. If I say I have bloody discharge for a week, do I have to take pelvic exam? I don't want to. I'm on birth control pill.

I have doc's appt soon. If I say I have bloody discharge for a week, do I have to take pelvic exam? I don't want to. I'm on birth control pill.

Why: If you have bloody discharge, it may be from a disturbance of the internal female anatomy like uterine cancer. If you hide the truth from your doc, the potential outcome can be fatal.If you exclude the proper exams from the evaluation process, you do the same thing. If you want the best care possible, tell the truth and discuss the process of evaluation with your doc.He/she may not need to. ...Read more

I have milky slightly yellow and sour smelling vaginal discharge. I have has pelvic exams/swabs and pregnancy tests done all negative.What could itbe?

Vaginal pH: The natural vaginal ph is acidic and so it is expected for its normal secretions to be sour. However, copious yellow discharge is likely abnormal but i don't know how to counsel you unless i know exactly what you'd been tested for. Gonorrhea, chlamydia, bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas, and yeast are all things you should've been tested for; please verify. ...Read more

Blood when i wipe after pelvic exam is it normal?

Entirely yes: Any paps or samples taken from scraping the cervix can stir up bleeding from the mucous lining. Also just the pressure of the speculum can do the same. If, however, it lasts more than two or three days there is probably another reason and you should check back with your gyn. ...Read more
