The Vagina Bleeds And Is Slimy After Running?
I am 19 years old. In the morning after running my vagina bleeding and then accompanied by stomach cramps before, and a few days before I had a high fever accompanied by dizziness. A few days earlier, I also experienced vaginal discharge that interfered with vaginal discharge with a pungent odor and white mucus. Is this dangerous? Thank you
Hello, Ocaca, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The discharge of blood from the vagina must be ascertained before this happens in the menstrual cycle or not. Menstrual cycles start from the first day of menstruation until the first day of the next menstruation, normally between 21-35 days. If there is mucus and blood in the menstrual cycle and there are lower abdominal cramps, it could be menstrual pain (dysmenorrhea). Severe menstrual pain can be caused by several conditions such as pelvic inflammatory disease, bumps on the reproductive organs, cervical constriction, etc. However, if the discharge of blood from the vagina before 21 days or after 35 days, then we think of it as bleeding out of the menstrual cycle.
The discharge of blood outside the menstrual cycle can be caused by several possibilities:
1. Hormonal disorders
2. Physical fatigue
3. Significant / drastic weight changes
4. Pelvic inflammatory disease
5. Lumps / tumors in the reproductive organs
Meanwhile, vaginal discharge with a pungent odor, can be caused by several things, such as:
1. Bacterial vaginosis (disruption of the balance of bacteria and normal flora in the vagina, causing vaginal discharge with a fishy odor)
2. Trichomoniasis (infection of the female genitalia by the bacterium Trichomonas vaginalis, causing vaginal discharge that smells foul, vaginal discharge greenish)
3. Lack of cleanliness in the reproductive organs
4. Lumps / tumors in the reproductive organs
To determine the cause, more complete data is needed about the history of the appearance of symptoms and matters relating to the occurrence of symptoms, physical examination, and supporting examinations, for example: vaginal fluid tests, urine analysis, until ultrasound.
You should not delay to see a doctor, especially if there is a fever, abdominal pain or waist, vaginal odor that smells bad, bleeding from the vagina outside the menstrual cycle, itching / pain in the genitals, or pain when urinating / urinating disorders.
Keep the reproductive hygiene clean by always rinsing it with clean water (no need to use soap) from front to back. Do that every time you finish urinating and having sex. Wear underwear that absorbs sweat and keep your genitals clean and dry. Always dry the genitals whenever it feels wet. In addition, avoid unsafe sexual relations. Unsafe sexual relations, for example: not wearing a condom, having sex with someone with no known sexual health history, changing sexual partners, etc.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
