Is It Normal For Vaginal Discharge To Smell And If Petting Can Cause Pregnancy?
Hello, I want to ask you a few questions … I’m a 20-year-old woman. 1.) I haven’t had my period for – + 2 years. Once menstruation can reach 2 weeks and a lot. And I suddenly went through menstruation last year. Finally, my period was around mid-December 2018 because my period was not regular. Every month is more than 5 days. Now I am 2 months late. Why is this? Do I have a disease or what? What triggers the woman to not menstruate and how to handle it? 2.) 2 Last week my middle back was very painful and my stomach in my right navel also felt like being stabbed. I searched on the Internet for symptoms of appendicitis but I’m not sure though because I don’t feel like people who have symptoms of appendicitis. 3) I also often do petting with my girlfriend but the sperm always comes out outside of my vagina. Does petting also cause pregnancy? ? I have read the blog but I haven’t found the answer either … I haven’t experienced anything like pregnant people all this time … I thought I had menstruating because of this, but when I tried the test pack several times the results were negative. 4) I have had vaginal discharge for a long time. but this week my vagina was white and smelly. Quite a lot that I am not comfortable for routine because my vagina is very slimy. 3 days ago my vaginal discharge was dense like milk powder exposed to water. Why is this too? Is vaginal discharge like this? Because I have seen leucorrhoea for years, I have seen a doctor before but it says why is that reasonable. But I don’t think my vaginal discharge is 2 this week … Thank you. Sorry if my question is long hehe ..
Hello, good afternoon. beforehand thanks for the question.
I tried to answer the questions in order one by one. For the first question related to menstruation. Menstrual cycles and processes are greatly influenced by hormonal conditions in the body, there are many factors that can cause a person to experience menstrual bleeding. Each woman will have their respective cycles, some are longer or shorter. Generally, a woman who has just started menstruating will tend to experience irregular menstruation in the first few years because of an unstable hormone condition. But if you have previously experienced a smooth menstrual cycle and then there are sudden changes, then we recommend that you check this with your obstetric or obstetrician, so that if there are certain conditions that are the cause, the doctor can provide appropriate treatment. Menstrual conditions are not smooth, not in the first years can be said as irregular menstruation that has several types:
- polymenorrhea, menstrual cycles less than 21 days
- oligomenorrhea, the condition of a menstrual cycle is longer or does not occur more than 35 days but less than 90 days.
- amenorrhea, no menstruation approximately 3 months in a row
- metrorrhagia, longer menstrual bleeding with more volume
Some of the conditions that cause menstruation are not smooth / irregular: pregnancy, use of contraception, daily lifestyle (Excessive body weight or very thin), polycystic ovary syndrome / PCOS, have medical problems related to the thyroid gland, etc. To find out the cause of the complaint to you, you should immediately check with your doctor or nearest health facility because treatment will be different depending on the cause.
For the second question, related to complaints of pain in the stomach. Apart from the possibility of appendicitis, there are many other possible causes related to these symptoms such as divericulosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, etc. Also in the abdominal area there are various kinds of organs, not only the digestive organs such as the intestine, stomach, liver, etc. But there is also the possibility of reproductive organs such as ovaries / ovaries (can also cause pain in the lower abdomen right / left) and also associated with urinary organs such as kidneys, ureters, bladder, etc. In addition, if there is a possibility of pregnancy, the condition of pregnancy outside the uterus can also cause symptoms of pain in the lower abdomen and this condition requires immediate medical treatment. To know this with certainty the doctor needs to examine your condition thoroughly and conduct a direct examination, if needed then a supporting examination can also be done to help establish the diagnosis related to the complaint you are experiencing.
For the third question, regarding petting and the possibility of causing pregnancy, this condition depends on how sexual activity is carried out. Petting that is done by wearing underwear will certainly be very unlikely to cause pregnancy, but if in the condition of the penis and vagian close without using underwear, still have the risk of sperm entering the vagina or accidentally entering through the vagina through fingers or other body parts affected by semen, and when there is a meeting between the egg and sperm, pregnancy can also occur. What needs to be watched out for petting activities also still have a risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases / STDs even though it is smaller than sexual relations.
For the fourth question, related to vaginal discharge. Basically all women will experience vaginal discharge because it serves to protect and cleanse the vagina from irritation and infection, but what needs to be considered is to distinguish normal vaginal discharge from abnormal vaginal discharge conditions. Normal vaginal discharge generally has the characteristics of clear to whitish and odorless, and is usually not accompanied by itching or pain in the vagina. If you start to feel vaginal discharge that smells (foul, fishy, etc.), changes color (greenish, yellow, brown, red or bloody), bubbly, itchy and sore in the vaginal area or accompanied by blisters around the genital area then you need suspicious and should immediately consult a doctor or dermatologist and sex because this condition can be a sign of infection. doctors need to do an examination and find out the cause, because the treatment will depend on the cause of the infection whether due to bacteria or fungi, etc. While this vaginal discharge has not improved you should not engage in any sexual activity first because this can also be transmitted to your partner, besides it is good when going to the doctor, your partner is also examined so that if there are similar complaints can be immediately treated together .
some suggestions for you to maintain the health of the female organs:
- diligent cleaning of the female organs regularly
- Clean the female organs from front to back
- Use lingerie that is soft and absorbs sweat
- diligently changing clothes at least 2x a day, or if you are menstruating as often as possible and try to stay dry and not moist
- don't use over-the-counter medicines or cleaning fluid for female organs because it can change the pH of the female area, just clean it with clean water or warm water
Thus the information that we can convey, hopefully helps.
