The Cause Of Bad Odor Coming Out Of The Vagina After 2 Weeks Of Delivery?
I want to ask, it’s almost 2 weeks after giving birth but it smells bad, why is that?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, where did the unpleasant smell come from? Is it from your pubic?
Exit odor from the genitals usually indicates an infection of the reproductive organs, can be limited to the outside (vulvovaginitis), can also get to the inside (pelvic inflammation). This infection is susceptible also experienced by mothers who have given birth, due to the condition of moist genitals when exposed to puerperal blood. Not only that, poor personal hygiene, unhealthy sexual activity (for example, accustomed to changing partners or having sex with partners whose sexual history is not clear), impaired vaginal flora normal balance, and less optimal endurance can also increase risk of this infection. In addition to the unpleasant odor, infection in the reproductive organs can also cause abnormal vaginal discharge (dark white, yellow, or greenish), vaginal itching, tenderness, swelling, bruntusan, and many other complaints.
Apart from infections, other conditions, for example malignancy, irritation, hormonal fluctuations, urinary tract infections, drug effects, vaginal fistulas, and many other possibilities also may cause unpleasant odors from the vagina.
To be clear, you try to check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician huh ... If the doctor feels the need, he may recommend that you undergo additional tests, for example cervical mucus examination, urine test, IVA test, pap smear, or others as a basis proper diagnosis.
In the meantime, here are our suggestions:
Improve your pubic hygiene, including by regularly cleaning it with good quality water, without the need for soap, fragrances, or other chemicals and changing underwear at least twice a day
Do not carelessly use pantyliner, soap, or fragrance around the genitals before consulting safety to the doctor
Drink plenty of water
Not having free sex
Use pants that are loose and made from cool absorb sweat
Hope this helps ...
