I had my cryosurgery a few days ago. I was told to expect a watery discharge but til now have not experienced any. Is that normal? My doctor only froze my cervix for two minutes, was it suppose to be done longer?

Different protocols: Not everyone has a watery discharge. We warn people about it because it can otherwise be a bit of shock. There are different protocols for freezing the cervix. In my practice, I either use a single freeze that lasts 5 minutes or freeze for 3 minutes, allow it to thaw and then freeze again for 3 minutes. Best wishes! ...Read more

Maybe: After pregnancy, miscarriage, or vaginal/uterine surgery it is not unusual to get a discharge until healed. Often this discharge will have an odor because of blood/old blood and bacteria in the discharge. To be safe have this evaluated by doctor. However if associated with any fever, chills, dizziness, nause/vomitting, abdominal pain, bleeding, then follow up ASAP ...Read more

I recently had a c-section and I am now experiencing brownish/bloody smelly discharge and also not feeling well do u know what this can be?

Possible: It is not unusual to bleed for several weeks after a c-section and the odor issue can be subjective.

It's uncommon to have a uterine infection after c-section remote from the procedure, check your temp but discharge and some bleeding not unus. ...Read more

I've had paragard for 6mnths & still have a yellowish smelly discharge and is potent during intercourse. Is this normal and what can I do to stop it?

Get tested: I agree with dr proffitt. This sounds like an infection and is probably unrelated to the iud. Smelly discharge that is worse with intercourse is most likely bacterial vaginosis. If testing confirms then it can be treated with antibiotics. Women without iuds get this too. ...Read more

2nd set of misoprostol already but only light bleeding in one day now its just brown smelly discharge? What's happening

Concerning: I am assuming you are describing anal discharge. Obviously, it also difficult to answer specifically, since I do not know the reason the medication was started for. So with your symptoms of bleeding and discharge I would seek further medical care as you could have anything from a bleeding ulcer in the stomach to infection or inflammatory colitis. You most likely need further medical tests ...Read more

Iv been having smelly discharge for over a yr now been treated for thrush and bv several times but litratly comes straight? No sex drive brown discha

BV? Trich? STD?: The main cause of vaginal discharge with strong odor is bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of vaginal bacteria. The STD trichomonas can do it, and is suggested by brown color (BV discharge is gray or white). Other STDs also could do it. Yeast (thrush) doesn't cause such symptoms. Consult with a gyn who specializes in infections, or visit a genitourinary medicine specialist or NHS GUM clinic. ...Read more

I had the Mirena udi inserted 13 months ago while the dr did my c-section. Since then I have bleed between 14 & 21 days per cycle. Extreme cramps, and pms symptoms & smelly discharge elevated anxiety and depression. Is this normal?

I had the Mirena udi inserted 13 months ago while the dr did my c-section. Since then I have bleed between 14 & 21 days per cycle. Extreme cramps, and pms symptoms & smelly discharge elevated anxiety and depression. Is this normal?

No Not Normal: The Mirena IUD is a very safe highly effective contraceptive option, and is also indicated to improve heavy menstrual bleeding. It can take 3 - 6 months for bleeding to improve, but by then 95% of women note significantly reduced menstrual bleeding, and 24%+ become amenorrheic (no periods at all). Your symptoms are definitely not normal. See a Clinician who deals with IUDs asap to see if in place ...Read more
