I am a postmenopausal woman with an 10 year old

Customer Question
I am a postmenopausal...

I am a postmenopausal woman with an 10 year old hysteroctomy. I have recently begun sexual relations again after 6 years and do bleed at times. I noticed specs of greyish brown in a discharge after using replens. Today it looked like a piece of small curd cottage cheese which was a bit rubbery. I will see my Gynecologist next week but am curious in the meantime.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No. and i do not take any medications

This sounds like a common vaginal yeast infection and nothing too serious

You can use over the counter Monistat or Lamisil for it and I also suggest oral probiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! 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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
