Discharge: On thick white discharge it’s safe to assume that it is thrush popularly referred to as candidiasis. Absence of periods one does not know whether you are on prevention, especially injection and some progesterone oral contraceptives. I assume you have excluded pregnancy. The last resort would be to see a gyaenacologist ...Read more

Might be a problem: Only an exam by an OB provider can determine the source and effect of a discharge during pregnancy. It might be an infection, like trichomonas, amniotic fluid discolored by meconium (even at 25 weeks), or something not worrisome at all. Any pregnant woman should call her OB when unusual signs or symptoms like this occur and be prepared to go to labor and delivery for evaluation if needed. ...Read more

Been on birth control for the past month and today I started having brown thick discharge and a streak of red when I go to the bathroom, pregnant?

Been on birth control for the past month and today I started having brown thick discharge and a streak of red when I go to the bathroom, pregnant?

Vaginal discharge: It all depends on when you started the birth control pills. If you just started it a month ago then it may be a normal flow. If you started 2 weeks ago it could be breakthrough bleeding. If you have been on it for several months and you missed a flow and it is not time for your flow then it could be tissue from the pregnancy. Without more information I cannot tell for sure. ...Read more

Me and my boyfriend had sex tonight and for the first time we noticed a thick white discharge that came out of me. Should I worried and consult my obgyn?

The: The discharge could represent a variety of things. Depending on where you are in your cycle this could be normal discharge. Towards the end of your cycle the discharge tends to become a little "thicker" so to speak. You may be suffering from a yeast infection, but usually this will also be associated with vaginal itching and sometime irritation, or were you recently treated for a vaginal yeast infection and used a vaginal cream that you inserted into the vagina. If so this could be the explanation. Occasionally the cream will stay inside the vagina for many days following administration, and possibly the intercourse is what caused the medicated cream to come out of your vagina.
The bottom line is unless the discharge has an odor, or causes any irritation, I think it's normal discharge. If any of these things occur, then you can visit your primary care doctor or gynecologist for an evaluation. ...Read more

I used monistat 1 (tioconazole) last Friday and it helped almost immidiately but it's 9 days later and I'm having thick white discharge, is that notmal?

May not be enough: A single dose is unlikely to be sufficient to eradicate the infection. Thus your problem may simply be a case of persistent infection temporarily slowed down by the single dose of Monistat or the problem may be from something else altogether. At the least, use Monistat for a least 3 days if not longer. If problem persists or worsens see GYN ...Read more

Your: Your symptoms could be any one of a number of things including a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, trichamonas, or some other infection such as chlamydia or gonorrhea. Most of these are treated with a different antibiotic than what we use for urinary tract infections. You need a complete gyne exam with cultures and examination of your vaginal fluid. By doing all of this, hopefully your doctor will figure out what is causing your symptoms and be able to treat you appropriately. Good luck! ...Read more

Yeast?: BV generally doesn't cause vulvar irritation or "thick white" discharge. The main symptom of BV is vaginal odor with only slight to moderate thin discharge. Most likely BV is gone; having sex during treatment isn't likely to make it persist. Your symptoms are more typical for a yeast infection, maybe triggered by the BV treatment. But don't guess, see a doctor. Probably also need STD testing. ...Read more

Can coming off the Mini pill cause thick white discharge?

Can coming off the Mini pill cause thick white discharge?

It can happen: Even though the doses of hormones used in the mini-pill are low, the change in hormonal environment can affect vaginal discharge. This hormonal change might even make you more susceptible to a yeast infection....the most typical cause of a thick white discharge. If it is not itchy/irritating & goes away in a few days, all is good. If persists or causes symptoms, see your doctor. Good wishes:) ...Read more

I am having thick white discharge with sour odor. I've had BV several times. Could I be having bv again?

Probably: It does sound like BV. There are antibiotics that can treat it that your doctor can help with. People with recurrent BV may benefit from using vaginal probiotics, increasing the amount of acid in the diet (such as fruits and vegetables). Limiting dietary sugar may also help. Prolonged use of antibiotics can work as well in some cases. ...Read more
