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]

      There are currently two Phase 2 clinical trials of the effect of valacyclovir (i.e. Valtrex) at the NIH and University Hospital in Umeå, Sweden respectively for the sole purpose of measuring the impact to Alzheimers of taking Valacyclovir in HSV1+ individuals. Anti-viral Therapy in Alzheimer's Disease https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03282916?recrs=ad&cond=Herpes+Simplex&rank=10 Feasibility and Effects of Valaciclovir Treatment in Persons With Early Alzheimer's Disease (VALZ-Pilot) https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02997982?recrs=ad&cond=Herpes+Simplex&draw=2&rank=11 We should have some compelling evidence by about this time next year as the Swedish study has been going since 2016 and is set to conclude in April of next year.  The NIH study is set to conclude in 2022 but either way, on simply the mounting causal evidence, I'm going to continue taking my antivirals.

      It still sucks for those of us in our 40's. Granted you will have to deal with it a lot longer than I, but it still sucks.
