Hello Erha. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The discharge that you experience or what is commonly referred to as fluor albus or leukorrhea in medical terms is a condition or condition where white or yellowish secretions occur from the vagina. These secretions are usually the most frequent originating from the cervix (cervix). There are secretions that are normal or abnormal. Normal (physiological) discharge is usually white, odorless and slightly sticky, which has a function as a vaginal lubricant. This aims to protect the vagina from injury and infection.
Normal vaginal discharge can also occur:
Just before and after menstruation
Early sign of pregnancy due to an increase in the hormone estrogen
A protracted state of stress
The use of contraceptives, such as the IUD (Intra Uterine Device) in the uterus It is called abnormal if there is an increase in the volume of secretions, smelly secretions or a change in the color of the secretions. Abnormal discharge can indicate inflammation or infection in the female reproductive system.
However, from the information you have given, it is possible that the vaginal discharge you are experiencing comes from the use of an IUD or a vaginal infection.
Regarding the drug that you mentioned above, it is a combination of anti-fungal drugs and antibiotics, namely Metronidazole and Nystatin in the form of ovules that are inserted into the vagina to treat vaginal infections. To accelerate the release of the drug in the vagina, wet with water just before inserting it into the vagina.
Tips for maintaining the cleanliness of intimate organs to prevent vaginal infections:
Always maintain the cleanliness of the feminine area
Get in the habit of washing the vaginal part from front to back and not upside down
Change pads and underwear as often as possible so as not to become a nest of bacteria
Do not get in the habit of using harsh soaps
Do not change partners in sexual intercourse
If your condition is not getting better or you are suffering from anxiety, my advice is to visit an obstetrician or obstetrician for a microbiology laboratory examination of vaginal fluids or other supporting examinations. I hope this information is helpful. Greetings, dr. Shirly
