Hello,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

I read your previous question posted here and answered by another expert. Your symptoms and orange color can be due to;

1) Mild grade infection of the internal lining of the uterus.

2) Hormonal issue like thyroid.

You may consider taking probiotics, apart from plenty of fluids. Gatorade too would help for the electrolyte maintenance.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

What would cause that type of infection and what antibiotics are usually given to treat it?
In case of thyroid issues would it be hyper or hypo thyroid issues or could it be early menopause?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 6 months ago.

A vaginal swab / culture test is able to confirm the infection and also tells about the best antibiotic to teat it. Usually Amoxicillin and Clavulinic acid combination is good. Hypothyroidism is more likely than any other hormonal issue. But again blood tests would be needed to establish it.
