This is Dr. David

you could have a vaginal fungal infection or a bacterial vaginosis vaginal infection

there are vaginal fungal treatments like GynLotramin or Monistat which can treat mild vaginal fungal infections.

bug if you are having vaginal discharge, you need to see your gyn doctor

and get a gyn examination

you could have vaginal atrophy after menopause which can cause vaginal dryness and sometimes bleeding as well.

are you willing to see a doctor for gyn examination?
