Customer Question
Hi. I'm 56 years old...
Hi. I'm 56 years old and had a complete hysterectomy when I was 31. I've had a white discharge for a week or so, but thought it was from my Premarin. Today I woke up with cramps and I have a heavy brownish discharge. I've been changing pads all day. Should I go to urgent care tonight?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: No. I haven't seen a doctor yet. I'm on several daily meds. Cymbalta, Lisinopril, Clonozepam, Gabapentin and Linzess
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not really

Thank you for your question, it seems that you are having a possible infection in the vaginal area, if these symptoms lasted for less than 3 days then there is no need to worry, if symptoms lasted more than 3 days then you have to get it evaluated, culture and cytology test are the best tests at this stage to help in further evaluation, thank you.

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.
