Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hi! Thank you for your response, I am privileged you ave allowed me to help you improve your health. There are a few preliminary questions I need you to answer in order to give you the best advise.
1. Have you used any antibiotics in the 2-3 weeks before this discharge started? 2. How much water do you drink daily (cups, ounces or liters)?
Thanks for your reply. The symptoms you describe sounds like you may have a Candida infection, commonly known as a yeast infection. This is due to a normal inhabitant in the vagina, Candida, which can become excessive and cause a thick white pasty or chunky discharge. I find women who are not consuming sufficient water or who are consuming excessive sugars & carbohydrates or women who have diabetes to be at highest risk. This can be treated when diagnosed using an anti-fungal creme, ovule or suppository. Before diagnosis you can try reducing the sugars & carbohydrates in your diet and drinking sufficient water (at least 64 oz /d unless you also drink caffeine, then you need much more because caffeine dries out your body's tissues.)
