6 weeks post-op vaginal odor:help:

I had a TVH with the removal of my ovaries and fallopian tubes on November 25. I'm not back to work yet, but being on my feet longer than 2 hours causes me pain. I have a slight blood tinged discharge and an oder that reminds me of the inside of a raw turkey. Is this normal? Just a FYI, I was cleared to have sex after 2 weeks post-op and was wondering if having sex caused this oder.

Doesn't sound good - I would see my doctor - and soon.

Also, I've never heard of anyone cleared for sex at 2 weeks - the norm is nothing in the vagina until 6 weeks. The vaginal stitches don't start to dissolve until about 3 or 4 weeks and 95% closure doesn't happen until around week 6.

Good Luck.

with McLila!!

I'm surprised you were released so early, especially having had a vaginal hyster!! I would definitely call your as soon as possible. Hopefully he/she can get you in to get checked out soon.

In the meantime, please take it easy and maybe abstain from sex until you can be seen. Best of luck to you.

and sending you

Re: 6 weeks post-op vaginal oder:help:

I swear, I shower daily too and slight daily discharges of pink or brown, but I smell down there like my dog when her glands stink-I can't stand smelling my own self to be honest, which is only when I go potty, but it's awefu-I know I have no infection, so it must be the old blood, sutures that stink-but seriously, YUCK. I"m afraid to use any sprays or powders so early, so after I shower, I do spray the outside of my underwear with a spritz or two of spray deodorant just to feel better.

Re: 6 weeks post-op vaginal odor:help:

I too had a TVH, and I went for my 3 week ck up Tues... My cuff was only 75% healed, and he did a silver nitrate treatment to help speed the process... He reminded me many times that he was the only one that could stick anything inside of my vagina... He said no bathes, no sex, and not to douche... Please get ckd out bc if u had sex to early the sperm could have gotten passed ur cuff or even cervix if u kept it, and can cause infection... Alot of times infections do not show themselves for several weeks... It does sound like a bacterial infection... Good Luck 
