Hello doctor,

I have been suffering from yellowish green vagina discharge. I have been to several doctors and they have done urine tests, vaginal swab. But nothing helped and have been given medication for a bacterial infection, yeast infection. The symptoms just keep coming back. I will attach a picture of the discharge.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your urinalysis and vaginal swab tests were normal or not? You have received medications for bacterial infection but it keeps coming back. One thing that I want to tell you is that in normal females few have high vaginal secretions. It is sometimes by genetics or otherwise at ovulation or excitement, at fertilization or in stress or anxiety or overexertion during pregnancy or in a few diabetic patients. All can be due to over-production of normal vaginal flora as well but other infections could be there. You could have one of the above-mentioned causes.

Do not over-treat vaginal secretions unless it is diagnosed infection, smelly, irritating and not normal as it can cause damage to your normal vaginal flora that is lactobacillus. As a result, you can have vaginal dryness, over-secretion from the vagina. Maintain strict hygiene. Soft comfortable undergarments. Have a healthy nutritious diet and try to have full monitoring and treatment, if you have any health problem. Have twice on two alternate days Clotrimazole pessary per vaginal and have one course of tablet Doxycycline 100 mg BID for seven days. If you feel irritating, you can sit in warm water twice daily for a few minutes. Better to use natural products locally and not chemical.
