Thank you for asking Alodoter.
Normal vaginal discharge is clear to white, with a consistency of liquid to slimy, and not accompanied by odor, itching, especially sore. If you refer to the information you convey, your vaginal discharge can still be said to be natural due to hormonal influences before menstruation. Even so, it can also be too thick vaginal discharge indicating an infection, irritation, or also malignancy around the reproductive organs.
Vagina that feels hot, reddish, causing pain that extends to the waist and genitals, is probably not a natural thing. This condition is likely to occur due to infection, can be limited to the outer vagina (vulvovaginitis, bartholinitis) or can also reach the urinary tract (urinary tract infection) and the inner reproductive tract (cervicitis, pelvic inflammation, etc.). In addition to infection, this complaint can also occur due to the influence of hormonal fluctuations, irritation of sex organs, and many other possibilities. This infection is often closely related to the hygiene of intimate organs that are less awake, unhealthy sexual activity, and poor immune system.
It is better if you check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician so that your complaints can be identified as the cause and given the best treatment, yes. Further examination, such as ultrasound, urine test, cervical mucus test, IVA test, or pap smear may also be a doctor. recommend to you.
At this time, so that complaints improve, do the following tips first:
Clean the genitals using clean water after every shower, after sexual intercourse, and after defecating
Change your underwear regularly, choose underwear that is soft and absorbs sweat (not linen)
Not having risky sex (if you are not married, avoid sexual intercourse at all)
Compress the painful waist and pubic area with warm water
Soak in warm water so that the pain gets better
Take paracetamol if necessary (as a pain reliever)
Eat and drink healthy and nutritious
Not physical activity too tired
Do not carelessly use chemicals around the genitals, including vaginal deodorant soap, spermicides, sexual lubricants, or pantyliners
Do not stress
Hope this helps ...
