Stomach Pain Due To Stomach Ulcers Accompanied By Vaginal Discharge?
I want to ask, when my stomach ulcers recur, when my stomach hurts so much I experience vaginal discharge, my vaginal discharge is clear, is the ulcer and vaginal discharge related?
Hello, good afternoon. Previously, thank you for using HealthReplies.com's consulting services.
An ulcer is a symptom of gastric-related diseases characterized by heartburn, pain that occurs due to various conditions, such as the presence of sores on the lining of the stomach (peptic ulcers), the presence of bacterial infections (H. pylori), due to the side effects of using NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), as well as due to stress. This disease can be caused by several factors such as:
- unhealthy lifestyles such as smoking, consuming too much caffeine, alcohol and soft drinks, eating too much and fast, stressing, consuming spicy, fatty and oily foods, etc.
- factors due to digestive disorders and other medical conditions, such as GERD / gastric acid reflux, gastroenteritis / gastritis, inflammation of the pancreas, intestinal obstruction, gallstones, etc.
- drug side effects, for example due to the use of NSAIDs, namely anti-pain medications such as ibuprofen and diclofenac.
The condition of heartburn is generally closely related to the condition of the digestive tract, which can also be affected due to psychological conditions and drug side effects. While vaginal discharge is related to the body's reproductive organs. Basically this whitish condition aims to cleanse and protect the vagina from infections and irritations that occur. When vaginal discharge, mucus will come out of the vagina, this mucus is produced by glands contained in the vagina and cervix / cervix that will come out carrying dead cells and bacteria so that the vagina will stay clean. Normally this mucus is clear to whitish and odorless. this mucus is rarely accompanied by itching or burning in the vaginal area. So if you experience different conditions, you should immediately consult a doctor or health care facility because this can indicate the presence of certain diseases. Signs of vaginal discharge that are not normal include:
- mucus is brown or contains blood.
- accompanied by pain or bleeding
- greenish, yellow or bubbly mucus
- Leucorrhoea that is accompanied by streaking wounds around the pubic area
- vaginal discharge thick, white, and itchy (commonly caused by fungus, not transmitted by sex)
- leucorrhoea with runny, white or gray mucus and fishy odor (generally due to an imbalance in the amount of normal bacteria in the vagina, this is common and not transmitted through sexual contact).
to prevent this it is better you always maintain the cleanliness of the female organs, clean the female area with clean water, no need to use soap or other cleaning fluid because it will disturb the balance of normal bacteria in the vagina, change the underwear at least 2x a day, try to stay dry and do not be left moist, during menstruation change pads as often as possible so as not to be moist.
Thus the information that we can convey, hopefully helps. thanks.
