Causes Of Brown Spots After Menstruation And Vaginal Discharge And Itching In The Vaginal Area?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of bacteria in the urine often indicates a urinary tract infection. This infection can appear along the urinary tract, starting from the outermost one, namely the urethra, bladder, to the kidneys. Often, in women, this urinary tract infection occurs due to an increase in bacteria from the anus and genitals to the urinary tract. The trigger could be due to poor hygiene of intimate organs, unhealthy sexual activity, disturbance of normal flora balance around the genitals, hormonal fluctuations (for example just before menstruation or during pregnancy), and so on.
The discharge and itching that you experience around the genitals could be a sign of an infection of the sex organs causing your urinary tract infection (including sexually transmitted infections). It could also be due to vaginal discharge and itching due to irritation in intimate organs (including due to improper use of soap), vaginal fistulas (abnormal tubes that connect the vagina to other organs), hormonal fluctuations, or also due to other diseases, such as pelvic inflammation, myoma, cancer (such as cervical cancer, vulvar cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer), and so on.
Brown spots after menstruation can also occur due to factors that cause vaginal discharge and itching around the genitals as mentioned above. Or, it could also be that these spots indicate an imbalanced hormonal condition in your body, for example due to stress, fatigue, weight changes drastically, unhealthy diet, side effects of drugs or contraception, thyroid or pituitary gland disorders, or other diseases. , for example, endometriosis, uterine polyps, pelvic inflammation, and so on.
There are so many possibilities that the cause of your complaint can only be distinguished from a direct examination by a doctor or obstetrician. A negative Pap smear result can generally rule out the possibility of cervical cancer, or other cervical abnormalities. However, it does not rule out other diseases as mentioned above. Therefore, we urge you to check your complaint again with the doctor for a more in-depth evaluation, for example by examining cervical mucus, ultrasound, blood tests, and so on.
