I am almost 8 weeks out from a SLH and everything is fine except that I have noticed for the last 2 weeks that my vaginal odor has taken on a musty onion like smell It isn't a strong odor but it's definitely not my usual smell.
I searched the threads and found a few other people who had the same complaint in past threads and a couple said their doctor said that it was caused by the internal stitches dissolving. I called the nurse and she said she had never heard of dissolving stitches causing odor.
Has anyone else experienced this and if so how long did it last and what was the cause?
Also, how long do the stitches on the cervix take to dissolve?
I am also 7.5 weeks post-op and at week 3 or so started having a yellow discharge with some odor. My gyn said it was the internal stitches disolving and tearing some tissue. Turns out it was bacterial vaginosis requiring antibiotics. Too bad I learned this after having to return to hospital last week and was admitted for 5 days on iv fluid better to be safe and ask if it could be bacterial vaginosis or other kind of non-fever causing infection. Good luck
I have this as well - discharge and odour - going to see my family doctor on Wednesday - thought maybe I had a yeast infection but I have never had one of those before, tired over the counter meds did not help so going to the doc. I also urinate alot and have vagianl pressure ( don't know how else to descriibe it) also a slight burning/itchy sensation. I am 8 weeks p/o.
