After The Abortion, Why Does My Vagina Smell So Fishy And Often White Discharge Comes Out?
After the abortion, why does my vagina smell fishy and it often comes out liquid, what is the cause and what is the solution
Thank you for the question.
Miscarriage / abortion is a condition in which the fetus, placenta, amniotic fluid, and other uterine contents are shed and separated from the uterine wall at less than 20 weeks' gestation. Risk factors that can cause abortion can include maternal age during pregnancy, conditions in pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus, pregnancy wine, pregnancy without a fetus), problems in the uterus and cervix, infections during pregnancy, and other illnesses suffered by the mother.
Abortion itself can be divided into several categories, so there are a lot of things that you need to explain further. When does abortion occur? Does the abortion occur automatically with the contents of a pregnancy born all, or in part? Is the abortion performed on medical indication by a health worker? Is the abortion not done by health workers and not done in adequate health facilities? In addition, you need to explain the characteristics of the fluid that comes out of your vagina, because the fluid that comes out of the vagina can be either normal or indicate a disturbance. Basically, fluid from the vagina is said to be abnormal if it comes out continuously, white-yellowish or greenish, thick consistency like cheese, and accompanied by a fishy odor.
The following are possible causes of vaginal discharge that smells fishy and is associated with abortion:
Septic abortion, which is an infection before or after an abortion, the infection can be in the uterus. This usually happens if the abortion is not done sterically by a professional health worker, or it can be caused by still being left behind in the uterine tissue causing infection. Bacterial vaginosis, which is an imbalance in the growth of normal flora in the vagina. Sexually transmitted infections. You are advised to check with an obstetrician to ensure your further complaints, and your doctor will also carry out physical and supportive examinations such as ultrasound if necessary to see the remnants of tissue left behind after abortion.
In the meantime, here are the suggestions you can take at home:
Get enough rest at least 3 days after the action / abortion. Inadequate intake of nutrients, especially iron, drink 2-3L per day. Avoid sex at least 1-2 months after the action / abortion. Hopefully this information can help :)
