It doesn’t always mean that there is something wrong or you have an infection if you’re having a female discharge. I know it can be alarming if you have never had one before.
It is perfectly normal to have a clear discharge from the vagina before and sometimes after your ovulation. This may last for a couple of days then go away on its own.
Now if you’re having a female discharge with color or smells than it is probably one of two completely different infections. We need to identify the type of discharge first to determine which infection you have.
A light white almost clear to a thick bright white discharge with the consistency of cottage cheese is a candida infection. This should have very little to no odor and be quite itchy around the vagina. It is the most common symptom of a yeast infection.
This type of female discharge is really easy to clear up the symptoms. However you should take care to make sure you have killed all the candida in your system to insure you won’t get one again. These types of yeast infections are very frustrating to keep dealing with and even though some over the counter medications will clear the symptoms fast they don’t cure the root of the problem.
A word to the wise a yeast infection can be sexual transmitted between you and your partner. Yep, you guessed it I found that out the hard way. Me and my husband were had no idea that could happen. So I gave it to him and cured myself only to have him give it right back to me. Men generally don’t have symptoms of a yeast infection and just carry it. Of course this was before I knew the real trick to just kill all the candida in your entire body. The funny thing is it’s so simple with the right program and I was working so hard for a cure before. I just never knew.
You may be having a light yellowish discharge to dark yellow brownish female discharge. If this discharge has a consistency more like a liquid and a foul odor then you are dealing with a bacterial infection. Bacterial vaginosis is very common and is easily identified through its color and odor. There may be some slight itching with this infection but the odor is the worst part to me.
Bacterial Vaginosis is very common and can be treated form the privacy of your own home, which is the way I like it. The most common mistake I hear of people making is to treat this infection like a yeast infection. You can not cure a bacterial infection with any of the over the counter medications that are for a yeast infection, it just doesn’t work.
Bacterial vaginosis is not a sexually transmitted infection like a candida infection. However I would tell you to get this cleared up as soon as possible. Bacterial vaginosis can cause a lot of problems, especially if you’re pregnant. Besides its easy if you follow the right steps and there is no sense having it any longer now that you know what it is.
