Any odor? Thank you
Normal vaginal fluids can vary from woman to woman. It can be thin, slightly sticky to thick and gooey. It can be clear to white or even off-white in color. The amount of discharge can also vary. As long as you don't have an odor, burning or itching, then it's a normal discharge. Vaginal discharge can occur during ovulation, when hormone levels change or when pregnancy occurs.
I'm assuming you have had vaginal swabs that have been sent to the lab. If you have and nothing is coming back I would suggest in following up with an infectious disease doctor. As they can have access to more areas of infections.
Avoid tight fitting clothes, pantyhose, wear loose cotton panties, after activities that cause you to sweat make sure you shower right away, make sure to wipe front to back, if you wear pads vs tampon there is a chemical in pads that can cause for infections in some too, if you shave the vaginal area do stop that, no douching, try to lower carbs in your diet and see if all this helps to stop this.
If there is a fishy odor, this indicate BV (Bacterial Vaginosis). Which for some woman they are just more prone to this than others. By doing some of the things I listed above can help woman. Otherwise, it's best to get treated for it. The medication that is generally prescribed is metronidazole or clindamycin. Talk to your doctor about this if no help, then do follow up with an infectious disease doctor.
