Hi, I've had a sore vulva, and a bubbly discharge feeling from my vagina but can't actually see any discharge!

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the issue? Are you in any pain?

The soreness on my vulva area. I had one small spot there, now gone. This used to come every month just before my period but now I dont have periods as have had a hysterectomy

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I've suffered from thrush in the past, not so much now

You have a problem that has plagued women for decades. Many vaginal discharges or recurring itching with ineffective treatment is more common than sexually transmitted infections that are easier to treat. Not enough gynecologists have realized, that what goes on in the GI tract will be the source of thrush and some bacterial discharges. Lately, a lot of attention has been looking at the balance of various bacteria in the GI tract and how they can be responsible for vaginal issues. It’s best to start taking otc probiotics that can reduce the bad germs that cause nuisance vaginal discharges. Taking probiotic capsules orally once or twice per day can make a big difference within a matter of a week or two. If you keep taking different medications, that tend to eliminate the bacteria your GI tract needs to make the intestines work better and not keep seeding the vagina. I hope my information is helpful with your troublesome difficulty.
