Is the purpose of vag estrace cream to give you more daily discharge?

Is the purpose of vag estrace cream to give you more daily discharge?

Yes, and more: With age, and a decrease in naturally produced estrogen from the ovaries, the vaginal walls get thinner, lose elasticity, and decrease normal production of secretions. Estrogen cream helps reverse that process. So if you were dry from lack of natural estrogen, the cream should improve the vaginal health and increase the good secretions, keeping the healthy pH balance and normal bacterial balance. ...Read more

Common: The estrace cream 'melts' over time. So, this could be the cream itself. Over time, you might return to having your normal vaginal discharge from natural vaginal secretions. As Always, have your doctor examine you to make sure. ...Read more

Black = old blood: The color of the blood reflects how long the blood has been sitting inside your uterus or at the back of your vagina. Red is new. Brown or black blood is older and the blood products have started to break down. Some irregular bleeding like this with a new birth control method is very common and usually resolves on its own in a few days to weeks. ...Read more

Why does it feel like I'm ovulating when I'm taking beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate)...I also had string mucus discharge twice last week and this week?

Beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate): Hi, if you take the pills regularly and not missing any, you should not ovulate, that's the whole point of taking BCP. The mucus could be just because of the pills.
Be well. ...Read more

Is it normal to have brown vaginal discharge while on trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) bcp?

Is it normal to have brown vaginal discharge while on trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) bcp?

Can happen: It's common to have "break through bleeding" while on birth control pills. Taking the pills more exactly at the same time from day to day can help decrease the spotting. Setting your cell phone alarm may help. If the spotting continues, you can try a higher estrogen pill or a pill that doesn't change the Progesterone dose from row to row. ...Read more

If I stop taking Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) will the brown discharge between periods stop?

If I stop taking Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) will the brown discharge between periods stop?

Breakthroughbleeding: Women not on hormonal contraceptive medication may experience bleeding in between their menstrual periods. Most often this happens around the time of ovulation. Women on bcp may experience "breakthrough" bleeding. Switching to a bcp with a different progestin may stop the breakthrough bleeding or have it happen less often. It is a good idea for a woman to keep track of the bops she was on. ...Read more

Bad odor, no discharge. On orthocyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) first month, on inactive pills. No period. No period month before bc. Possibly pregnant?

Bad odor, no discharge. On orthocyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) first month, on inactive pills. No period. No period month before bc. Possibly pregnant?

Possible: Its not unusual to not have a period on the pill, check a upt. The odor could likely be improved by a short course of antibiotic. You could use a vinegar douch but do so carefully in that too much pressure could cause push bacteria to go into uterus creating an infection? The upt is the way to go, no one will tell you you can't be pregnant unless you have no uterus. Good luck. ...Read more

I am on nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) pills for 2mos now and I noticed I am having thick odorless yellowish vaginal discharge. Is it still normal?

I am on nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) pills for 2mos now and I noticed I am having thick odorless yellowish vaginal discharge. Is it still normal?

Discharge: Birth control pills can thicken the cervical mucus and because on the pill your body's hormones will change you might also experience a change in vaginal discharge. However any discharge that is not white, that is accompanied by itching or burning or an odor can signal a vaginal infection. If it is bothersome you should definitely see a health care provider. ...Read more

I stopped taking my bc desogen (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) and I'm having a lot of thin white discharge. What is causing this? On bc I had vag. Dryness now a lot of discharge.

Probably normal: While on birth control pills, estrogen levels are decreased thus leading to vaginal dryness. Now that your ovaries are producing more estrogen, the discharge is probably more than you would expect, but normal. ...Read more

Stopped Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) after 4-5 months (take it continuously). On day 3 of period, getting some clots and clear mucus-y discharge amidst blood. Normal?

Stopped pills: If you were taking birth control pills and then decided to stop them this would trigger a menstrual cycle. If you do like to amount of bleeding when not on the pill consider going back on them. If you are concerned about mucous and discharge then schedule a visit for infection testing. ...Read more

Periods are normally 28 days apart but it has been over 35 since my last. I have had 3 negative pregnancy tests. On natazia (estradiol valerate and dienogest). Brown discharge recently.

Prob your period: The brown discharge was likely your period just a very light one. Brown equals old blood. It is common to have an "off' cycle every now and then. If your pregnancy test is negative then you are not pregnant. Light periods on birth control is common and a nice side effect. ...Read more

I have been on on the birthcontrol previfem (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) for two years and have a brown discharge a week before my period. Is it normal? Any way to make it stop?

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

Does clear egg-like discharge mean ovulation even if on BC? I had this after I started a new pack of Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) & had unprotected sex the following 2 days...

Does clear egg-like discharge mean ovulation even if on BC? I had this after I started a new pack of Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) & had unprotected sex the following 2 days...

Probably not...: The egg-white like discharge while on BC doesn't necessarily mean ovulation. The birth control pills can affect your cervical mucus just like your natural cycle. If this isn't your first month on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and have been taking it correctly you are still protected from pregnancy. The chance of getting pregnant is about 3-5% per year. Best wishes! ...Read more
