I have a dropped uterus and bladder. All major tests were done. All negative. I have trouble urinating at times. My main concern now is I have a strong odor emanating from vagina despite washing many times. Strongest in am. It's not urine it's just an odor that is almost constant. Any suggestions? Cause?

Do you have vaginal discharge?

Are you doing any treatment for the odor.

No, that's what I'm asking. What treatment?

No discharge
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 1 month ago

Are you douching?

Or using any scents around the vagina?

Is the odor fishy?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
No douching. I tend to get UTIs. Reluctant to use anything but gentle soap and water. I can't describe it. Not fishy

Solution? Hello
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 1 month ago

Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause of vaginal odor. This occurs because of the change in the normal bacterial flora of the vagina. Bacterial vaginosis is a type of vaginal inflammation caused by the overgrowth of bacteria naturally found in the vagina, which upsets the natural balance. A home treatment is putting 3 tablespoon of yogurt in vagina at night time for 5-7 days.

Following are the treatment modalities;

1) Metronidazole (flagyl) and clindamycin have been the drugs of choice.

2) Azithromycin too is effective, especially if there is recurrence or persistence. Secnidazole, ornidazole and tinidazole are also used in the case of antibiotic resistance.

3) Antiseptics as vaginal suppositories;

a) benzydamine,

b) chlorhexidine,

c) dequalinium chloride,

d) polyhexamethylene biguanide,

e) povidone iodine

f) hydrogen peroxide

4) Probiotics.

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.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
