    How can I get rid of vaginal discharge?

    Hi everyone,

    I have had this discharge for the past five years or more maybe, and it never goes away. It can be white or green or yellow, and it is very foul in odor. I have had pap smears, they always come back normal, and she says that it is not yeast. What is it? How can I make it stop? It's ruining all of my underwear!

    Discharge of the type you describe and a foul odor are usually caused by bacterial infections. A white, cottage cheese consistency is often associated with a yeast infection. Yellow or green discharge is associated with other bacterial infections such as Trichomoniasis.

    The only way you will be rid of this is to see a doctor for a physical exam and any tests needed to determine what is responsible and then treatment.

     

    A Pap Test only checks the cervix for cancerous or pre-cancerous cells. You can read about that here on Health Central in an article written by Dr. Eileen Bailey.

      But that is the problem. I've had different tests done and they say that it is nothing. If it was nothing then why would I have these kinds of symptoms?

      I agree with you, it IS something. Probably an infection or infections of some type. The discharge and the odor were not always there and it is not normally there. 

      I would go to a different gynecologist, request that I be tested for the common bacterial infections or even std's, since anything is possible. I'd want rid of this.

       

      There is no way around it, to get proper treatment will require a doctor to write prescriptions so that you can access the drugs which will hopefully clear this from your system.

    Ali70248,

     

    I see that it has been a while since you posted, so I was wondering if you found any relief?  I imagine it is very frustrating to have dealt with that for so long.  Did you ever get the chance to return to your doctor?  Did you see a different physician?  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but I think Paul was on the right track.  It is something to take seriously.

     

    Please let us know how you are doing.  I'm sure your experience could be of great help to others in the community!

     

    Best of luck,

    James
