Q. Why I do get a continuous green vaginal discharge with fishy smell even after having medicines?

Answered by

Hello doctor,

I find myself in front of a very uncomfortable situation. I do not know what is going on with me, but I would like to find a cure. When I was younger, I was sexually assaulted and abused for three years. I believe then I contracted an STD, but I never got it treated because I was too afraid to speak. Days go by, and I find my self in front of green like discharge with a very bad fishy smell. I cover it as I can with deodorant, showering more often and the problems seem to calm a little.

But the truth is that after a while, these tentacle-like strings grew on my vaginal lips, causing very discomfort itchiness. After five years, I have been prescribed many different times the treatment for bacterial vaginosis, but the symptoms always come back. Every time I get sexually aroused this slimy clear discharge comes out of me making it super embarrassing. But the worse part is that my vagina is filled in the inside with these cottage cheese-like things that come out stuck on my finger when I put it in. These also come out during the day along with an acid like vaginal discharge that has no color, it is somewhat transparent, but it burns like acid is coming out of me. Kindly help.
