This : This could be several things: bacterial or yeast infection, discharge from irritation from condoms or spermicide, leakage of urine during intercourse that later is discharged through the vagina.

I had an operation on my stomach on 9 Sept & had clips removed on 19 Sept today I noticed 1 or 2 of my wounds are weeping clear fluid is this normal?

Yes, as long as...: What you describe sounds like normal tissue drainage after surgery. I am assuming you have no fever or increased oxygen requirements and that besides normal postoperative pain you feel fine. Also of course that your INR in the last week has been at therapeutic levels and that your blood glucose levels have been under control and that you're not currently taking any sort of oral steroid (see MD) ...Read more
