what causes vaginal discharge?

Recommended Posts

sammiexx

is discharge with herpes caused by usually having sores IN your vagina? I sort of had a discharge for a couple days - a week it was just clear but i got an internal exam and had no sores, so im assuming it wasnt herpes related becuase it makes sence to me that the discharge would be because of sores in the vagina and your vagina is trying to clean or make it better or w/e by having more discharge?

or is it actually the blisters causing the discharge?

I would recommend you wait 3 months and get a blood test

The most accurate test for herpes is a blood test. The test looks for antibodies to the virus and it takes your body 3 months to make them.

So unless you have another outbreak that they could do a swab test, I would recommend waiting 3 months and then having a blood test.

Good luck!

That's a really good question! It's a common theme here on the forum. It seems a lot of women experience a discharge after contracting genital herpes, some have vaginal infections. I kind of assumed it was from having a new virus and that was one way the body was trying to cleanse things up. It would be great to know the true medical reason for this?!

I seem to get discharge before and after an OB which is pretty regulary unfortunatley and no yeasts meds seem to help so beleive it is from the virus - hope this helps.

good question

I only get "outbreaks" internally, and i get discharge too. maybe its the bodies way of clearing it out? its wierd too unlike yeast or bacterial vaginosis (BV) anything like ive experienced but it goes away in a few days. information would be helpful!

I have had an almost constant dis-charge! no itching! after I was examined, the doctor said it was a yest infection. I went back a month later he said it was BV. I don't believe either. I like to believe it is just my bodies way of cleansing itself.

At least the discharge doesn't smell bad... I do believe it's a Herpes thing.

because the virus is screwing up the ph in your vagina it doesnt know what its suppose to do, or not sure how to fight it, so your hormones and everything is affected,, its foreign to the body an dtryig to figure out how to fight it..

any sort of infection will cause a discharge, that's why it's hard to diagnose on discharge alone. just like most illness come with headaches...can't diagnose on discharge or a headache alone.

discharge

it's day 3 for my diagnosis and i'm with you.

i have no blisters. just discharge and slight irritated redness. a little...very obscure ache in my legs here and there.

originally i went to the gyno because i kept having weird yellow-green discharge. they said it was just a bacterial infection. twice. finally after two months of this, i went to a new doctor and they took a test and told me a few days ago that it's hsv2.

these have been my only symptoms for genital herpes. i took diflucan. had some other ovule treatments. the discharge looks more clear now but i'm still slightly irritated below. again, no blisters...yet? who knows.

i guess the point here is that apparently, everyone's symptoms manifest differently. progress.gif [url=http://www.herpes-coldsores.com/messageforum/editpost.php?do=editpost&p=122159]

      I have had a monogamous relationship for the last 6 years.  I did not have Herpes before the relationship.  My partner recently had an outbreak on the buttocks and was diagnosed with HSV2 about 2 months ago.  She said it was the first outbreak She had ever had. She has been taking valacyclovir for the last 2 months and we were intimate for the first time in about 4 months about a week ago.  Now I have an outbreak on my upper lip.  I read that this is not impossible, but rare. I wanted to ask others opinions on how HSV2 works, as I cannot help but find the situation really strange.  I totally understand that HSV2 can lie dormant for years, displaying no symptoms.  My partner says She has not been unfaithful, and I decided to believe her.  However, with this outbreak, a new doubt crept in, as I think it's really odd I would get an outbreak a week after being intimate, knowing I didn't have this before our relationship. I would appreciate hearing if this is possible, I love my partner and can't bear the doubt, but also don't want to feel I might be being blind.

      Hello, Im in the UK and have recently been diagnosed with herpes 2.  I am still coming to terms with it but i am keen to consider the stigma surrounding herpes.   If you don't mind.... would you tell me if you have told many people you have it?  What was their reaction?  Thanks guys x

      Hi Guys! I am newly diagnosed with HSV-2 and its the 7th day and my 1st outbreak is over. One week before the diagnosis I was at the prime of my life and the news gave me depression and I wanted to commit suicide knowing that I have a stigmatized NO CURE DISEASE. After a lot of research online I came across the combination herpes cure that I need to try. I have already chatted the support and they are quite informing in their responses about the 4-6 months protocol. Anybody who has tried it kindly share your sentiments and I will appreciate the insights... I feel pity for my life dear God why me please...

      Hi Guy! I am also two weeks into my first outbreak. This has made me do a lot of research for a permanent cure. I have seen Synergy Pharmaceuticals from Australia selling the combination herpes cure. Has anyone come across this? Does it look legit?

      I do pick them and pop them a lot so I think I’m just making it worse! Do they look like herpes to you though ?
