Can Having Sex With A Condom Cause Vaginal Discharge?
Hello. Does any intimate contact with contraception (condoms) can cause excessive vaginal discharge? thanks.
Thank you for the question.
Condoms should not be associated with an increased risk of excessive vaginal discharge as you are worried. But indeed, in some women, certain types of condoms can trigger allergies or irritations, causing the activity of gland cells around the vagina and cervix to increase and produce more vaginal discharge.
In addition, more vaginal discharge may also occur due to the influence of hormonal fluctuations, stress, fatigue, irritation or allergies due to other triggers (such as soap or fragrance used), side effects of drugs, even other pathological conditions, such as infections to malignancies in around the reproductive organs.
As long as this whitish color is still reasonable (clear to vaginal discharge), does not clot, does not also cause itching, stinging, or an unpleasant odor, you really don't need to worry. Leucorrhoea like this will often improve with natural treatments such as:
Clean your genitals regularly with clean water, no need to use soap, fragrance, or any antiseptic, after every bowel movement, after sexual intercourse, and while bathing. Rinse the genitals from front to back (from the vagina to the anus), not vice versa.
Before wearing underwear, first dry your genitals with a tissue that is clean and contains no fragrance
Always wear lingerie that is soft, absorbs sweat, is not tight, and is replaced periodically
Don't do free sex
No excessive stress
Drink more and do not like to hold urination
If your vaginal discharge has not improved with the steps above, or if you encounter abnormal vaginal discharge as mentioned earlier, it is best to check with yourself directly to a doctor or a specialist in the skin and genitals to be treated properly according to the cause, yes.
I hope this helps.
