Brownish Red Discharge After Sex?
si. I want to ask this. Recently, before my period, my vaginal discharge had a strange smell, then sometimes it was red like menstrual blood, but sometimes it looked like brown. Then after that I had my period as usual. But here. After menstruation is over. How come the red-brown vaginal discharge still persists? Then when I had sex with my husband. Instead, the white discharge is a kind of blood color, and brownish. Why is that?? Can it be treated??
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Vaginal discharge, normally clear or white. Reddish or brownish discharge may be caused by vaginal discharge mixed with blood. If vaginal discharge like this appears around your menstrual schedule, then it may not be dangerous. However, if it appears outside the normal menstrual cycle, and often repeats, then you should immediately consult a doctor. It is feared, this condition is a sign of a disease, for example:
Pelvic inflammatory disease Cervical cancer Cervicitis Endometriosis Uterine polyps Myomas Side effects of family planning (eg IUD) Infections of intimate organs, for example due to genital herpes, syphilis Irritation, for example due to masturbation or excessive sexual intercourse, use of vaginal fragrance soap, etc. Your complaint can only be known after the cause of your complaint has been identified. Therefore, you should first check with an obstetrician, yes. Usually, through ultrasound or microscopic examination of cervical mucus samples, the doctor can determine the best treatment.
In the meantime, limit first sexual intercourse when there is active bleeding from the vagina. Always clean your sex organs after every bowel movement and after sexual intercourse. Also avoid the use of substances that are irritating around the vagina, such as perfumed soap, sanitary napkins containing perfume, and so on.
Hope it helps ya..
