My Discharge Smells Bad
I was recently diagnosed with HSV 2, while tests clear of all other std's. Ever since my discharge smells bad and strong.
Bacterial vaginosis?: It isn't herpes. The main cause of vaginal discharge with odor (often fishy) is bacterial vaginosis -- overgrowth of mostly normal bacteria. Trichomonas, an STD, can do the same. See your doctor for diagnosis and treatment advice. Don't be tempted to douche, which increases the chance of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), a serious fallopian tube infection. Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer

What causes my discharge to smells bad very bad, but it appears to look normal? My husband and I have been having unprotected sex for a year with no problems. My discharge looks normal but smell very bad. Does this mean he has been having unprotected sex
The: The most common reason for bad smelling discharge in a woman in a monogamous relationship is bacterial vaginosis (bv). Bv is not a sexually transmitted disease, but is an imbalance between the "good" and "bad" bacterial that normally live in the vagina. Douching and having sex can put you at risk since both activities cause a change in the vaginal environment leading to an overgrowth of "bad" bacteria. Many women will complain of a fishy odor, increased discharge and a few may even have itching and discomfort. You should give your doctor a call to see if you have bv. The doctor can test your vaginal discharge to know for certain whether you have it or not. Bv is typically treated with a short course of antibiotics.
Can eating ginger make your vagina smell? It was a ginger seasoning & I used a lot. Now my discharge smells really bad & I've never had smelly dischar
It's coincidental.: Eating ginger will not affect vaginal odor. But an infection can. While there are vaginal test kits available OTC that can screen you for vaginitis, they just give you a general idea of whether you have a yeast infection or bacterial infection. Since this is the first time you've had smelly discharge, your best bet is to see a doctor. Stay healthy!

Started yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill approx 2 weeks ago & noticed brownish discharge & my pee smells bad. Is this a side effect of yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) or is something else wrong?
Time: When you start a new birth control method it often takes a few months to adjust before we judge whether or not it is working. Well for them. Periods on this particular pill are usually very light so it may improve with time. Brown discharge is a small amount of old blood. Urine smell is diet related unless you have burning and frequency. If you have those symptoms you have a bladder infection.
Seems normal: Your ejaculate or discharge could be gooy and white. It may smell bad. Ejaculate should be at lease 2ml in volume, 20 millions or more per cubic milliliter, 60% of the sperm should be morphologically normal and 60% should have good motility. Your ejaculate seems ok. Please consult with your pcp for sure and if needed, a fertility specialist. Thanks.
What should I do if I have a thick milky discharge, some times smell like urin, then smells fishy sometimes, itch bad right after?
Depends: Discharge in a woman can be abnormal, normal, or transitional. It all depends on your history. It may be important for you to see a provider to be sure. They may be able to run tests on the discharge and obtain a complete history. Some common causes of discharge can be yeast, bacterial vaginosis or stds.
My discharge taste sour more like an acidic taste and it also has a smell not bad but smells different. Plus I have a milky discharge too..
Bacterial vaginosis?: The main cause of vaginal discharge with strong odor is bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of mostly normal vaginal bacteria. Some STDs also can do it, such as trichomonas. Also, other STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia are more common in women with BV. See a doctor soon for diagnosis and treatment. Good luck!
What to do if I think its vaginal discharge but it smells sooooo bad. Its like gooey. What the heck is it?
Vaginal d/c: It can be a bacterial infection, or std. More than likely, you should follow up with you ob/gyn. They will that culture, an do further testing.
See a doctor: This sort of symptom needs in-person professional evaluation. Are you sure the dishcarge is from the urethra, not vagina? In any case, it sounds like an infection, although atypical for most urinary tract infections. STDs are possible if at risk, but quite rare at your age. Don't mess around with this; see your doctor ASAP. Good luck!

Why does my discharge smell bad? My vagina doesn't hurt not itch it's just my discharge that smells foul
Hi only recently IV had some light brown discharge that smells.... Also very bad headaches are they linked? And is it serious? Xx
Depends: 1st off- Discharge from where? Anything coming from the body that smells "bad" probably needs to be cultured since it sounds infected. So you'll need to get that done. 2nd'ly- Headaches related? Depends on timing. Are these headaches exactly linked in onset to when you starting with discharge? If they resolve with discharge then, likely yes. More questions? Www. Healthtap. Com/dr-saghafi
