Hello Syarif Hidayatullah, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Normal vaginal secretions / secretions have odorless, non-painful, itchy, clot-colored, and transparent-colored characteristics, generally produced more in conditions before menstruation, ovulation, during sexual intercourse, and during menopause.
Colored and smelly vaginal discharge is abnormal vaginal discharge. Establishment of the diagnosis requires a direct examination by a doctor and if necessary investigations (taking samples from the pubic canal and from the cervix to be observed under a microscope). Based on your information, this can be caused by:
bacterial vaginosis: bacterial infection of the vagina (generally e.coli), risk factors: poor hygiene, often cleaning the vagina with antiseptic solutions. Symptoms: pain in the pubic area, whitish grayish white, thin like milk, smelly.
vaginal candidiasis: vaginal infections caused by fungus, clumping vaginal discharge such as cheese, itching, can cause odor. More at risk of pregnancy, diabetes mellitus / diabetes.
sexually transmitted infections: gonorrhea, chlamidya, tricomonas infections. Risk for people with a history of unsafe sexual intercourse.
It is recommended to you to see a doctor. If there is an indication the doctor will give antibiotic or anti-fungal therapy that can be inserted into the genital tract, or can also be drunk (there are also preparations taken by mouth). Keep the pubic area clean by keeping it dry after defecating from front to back to prevent intestinal bacteria from entering the urinary tract, no need to clean the vagina with antiseptic fluid because it just kills the normal bacteria that protect the vagina.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good afternoon.
