Hello Maharani, Thank you for your question.
Leucorrhoea is a normal condition that can occur in every woman because the vaginal wall produces mucus to cleanse the vagina. However, this vaginal discharge is said to be normal if clear or slightly vaginal discharge, does not smell, does not cause itching or stinging in the genital area. Leucorrhoea that changes color to milky white, smells, and which is accompanied by a sense of failure is a characteristic of abnormal vaginal discharge. Abnormal vaginal discharge can be caused by:
fungal infections of the vagina
bacterial vaginosis (bacterial infection of the vagina due to imbalance of good bacteria in it)
sexually transmitted infections
Metronidazole is an antibiotic drug used to treat bacterial or parasitic infections. You are not recommended to use antibiotics on your own without doctor's advice because their use is not necessarily right as well as the dosage. Improper use can cause exposure to unnecessary side effects and cause bacteria to become resistant to these antibiotics.
Given these symptoms have been going on for a long time, please consult with your nearest obstetrician so that the doctor can do an examination on you, including examination of vaginal discharge, to ascertain the cause. After confirming why, the new doctor can provide treatment that is appropriate for you.
Some suggestions you can do are:
regularly change underwear
keep the genital area always clean and dry
avoid using tight pants
hundari intercourse until healed
Hopefully this information helps you.
