Okay t.y.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

The vaginal discharge you're describing is often associated with a yeast infection. If the tests come back normal and no infection is present it's less likely to be an infection but an imbalance of the normal bacterial flora in the vagina. So if one bacteria overgrows and another undergrows then the normal discharge will change.

OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

It doesn't mean there is an infection, but an imbalance. There isn't any medication that can fix that but you can do things to help remedy it. For example, the first thing is we have patients start a probiotic and we also have them adjust their diets. Anything with animal products should be avoided due to the high antibiotic and hormone content. Those 2 together should help alleviate the problem.

My doctors keep ruling out yeast infection
And any other types of infection.
They keep saying my pH balance is normal? It's like my vagina is shedding???
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I've been using Probiotic btw
The situation has occurred ever since I've been using it so I stopped using them
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

If it started from using a probiotic then definitely stop using probiotics. It will take some time for the bacteria to reset, it could be several months. Next would be the diet, what's your diet like right now?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Green vegetables and cholorphyll and barely any meat and only potatoes.
I've tried to eliminate the basics
No sugar or anything of that nature.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Nothing I can do to rebalance my flora quickly?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I'm to embarrassed to have sex with my b.f. because of this thick white discharge.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

And you don't consume any dairy of any sort, correct?

As for rebalancing the flora. There are probiotics aimed at vaginal flora whether in oral formulations or suppository but they could make things worse. I don't recommend them for my patients unless they are on longstanding antibiotics for other reasons.

I can understand your embarrassment but it is perfectly normal for some women to have that kind of discharge. I know that's not the norm for you and it will soon resolve but for some it's the norm.

Cheese here and there and def. Barely any milk I don't drink regularly milk only alomond. I think I'm gonna sit in baking soda as to alleviate the problem I hope.
