Top Vaginal Symptoms And the Diseases That Go With Them

- Friday, January 06, 2012
Here are some of the most common symptoms of vaginal problems:
   

Abnormal Discharge

Vaginal discharge is perfectly normal, but if you notice a change in color, consistency or smell, then there could be a problem. Abnormal discharge is usually an indication of vaginal infection or disease.

White:

White discharge is usually present throughout your menstrual cycle, especially at the start and end of your period. However, if it has a thick, curd-like consistency and is accompanied with any type of vaginal irritation such as itching or redness, you may have CANDIDIASIS (more commonly known as a yeast infection) or a fungal infection.

Yellow or Green:

If you have a thick, cottage cheese-like yellow or greenish yellow discharge with an unpleasant odor, you may have bacterial vaginosis (BV), which is a disease of the vagina caused by bacteria. However, if are also experiencing any type of pain (most likely in the abdomen area) during sex, you may be suffering from an STD called trichomoniasis, or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which entails inflammation of your fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus.

Brown:

This kind of discharge is not uncommon, as it can usually appear when your period is late. However, if your brown discharge comes with unexplainable pain or any other type of vaginal irritation, it could mean something far more severe, such as cervical cancer, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), menopause, or even STDs like chlamydia, gonorrhea, or vaginal warts.

Itching or Burning

Vaginal itching could mean something as mild as a skin irritation from the chemicals in the products you use, but if you are experiencing it in conjunction with other symptoms such as dryness, pain during intercourse, or abnormal discharge, you may be suffering from a vaginal infection or disease. You may have a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, or STDs such as genital herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea and more.

Swelling

When you experience swelling on your entire vaginal area, you could be suffering from some type of allergy or skin irritation. Swelling can also occur due to inflammation, edema, infection, or an STD. But if it is confined to just a certain part of your genitals, then the swelling may be due to cysts or abscesses.

Painful Intercourse

Painful intercourse, which is medically known as dyspareunia, is one of the main signs that you are suffering from a vaginal infection or disease. But actually, that’s not always the case. Pain or discomfort during and after intercourse could also be caused by skin irritation around the vaginal area (from chemical irritants), or it could be due to injury or damage to the vagina—either internal or external. However, if you are also experiencing any of the aforementioned symptoms, the occurrence of pain during sex could be due to a yeast infection, an STD, vaginismus (involuntary spasm of vaginal muscles) or even vulvar or cervical cancer.

If you are experiencing any of the mentioned symptoms, set an appointment with your doctor right away.

As the person that was referred to in the Mayors comments and the person that made the “Follow the Law” comment I completly agree and last night I did apologize for my contribution. And in no way would I say I am exempt from my comment, and I am fully prepared to accept any consequences. I would only point out the police is quite overboard, and the only reason I spoke out was I had attempted to communicate the various illegal activities that have been happening just in my 4 months of being a resident. I communicated over 50 times with staff, Council, and the Mayors office. These were not discretionary gripes, but clear cut legal violations. There is a long president in this country of using Civil Disobedience as a LAST resort. I felt this was mine. And again it was not a tirade, locking myself to the doors or such. Just a case of pointing out what the City Attorney, Council, Mayor, and Council President should surely know.[/url]

If you don't know how to find the best university in the world for you, I recommend you to read article that is available onthis website[/url] and also read about opportunities for Boston university students who are engaged in entrepreneurship [url="https://www.internetvibes.net/2019/11/08/opportunities-for-boston-university-students-who-are-interested-in-entrepreneurship/"]on the website[/url] in order to understand that Boston university is one of the best educational institutions in the world. Also if you want to be involved in military activities you can read about the fact that military-connected pupils go to the University of Chicago [url="https://bootcampmilitaryfitnessinstitute.com/2019/11/07/military-connected-students-go-to-the-university-of-chicago/"]on this site[/url] and you also can go to the University of Chicago. And in the end, if you want to be connected with the geographic job you have to read about two researchers from the University of Washington will study the climate change in the arctic [url="https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/11/07/two-researchers-from-the-university-of-washington-will-study-the-climate-change-in-the-arctic/"]on this site[/url] and order a University of Chicago as one of the best educational institutions that also has faculties connected with geographics.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation however I find this topic to be actually one thing that I think
I'd by no means understand. It seems too complex
and very extensive for me. I'm looking ahead on your next put up, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!

i already gave up on ever getting cured of HSV2 because i have try many treatment none of them work out for me i have go to different hospital they always tell me same thing there is no cure for herpes when i came across a post about Dr ohunyom, in the net from a lady called Angela i contacted him and he reassured me with him herbal medicine which i took according to the way he instructed, that how i was cured. I doubted at first because i have been to a whole lot of reputable doctors, tried a lot of medicines but none was able to cure me. so i decided to listen to him and he commenced treatment, and under two weeks i was totally fee from #Herpes. i want to say a very big thank you to DR ohunyom for what he has done in my life. feel free to leave him a message on email drohunyom@gmail.com and also WhatsApp him +2349060579973..
He can still be able to help you with this herbs medicine:
