Vaginal Discharge

Hello, ladies! I haven't been here in ages but often refer people to the boards. It was such a big help to me pre and post-op (March 2001) to have a place to come to where I could ask ANYTHING!

Now, my question: I have been taking Kliogest N (A German brand that is 2mg estradiol and 1 mg Norethisteronacetate) since shortly after the op. I seem to be handling it pretty well but have had almost non-stop, milky (sometimes green! ) vaginal discharge since my recovery. I've been treated twice for yeast infections with suppositories that clear it up only for the duration of the treatment plus a couple of days. The doctor doesn't seem to know what it is or to be particularly concerned. When I asked him about trying another form of HRT, he suggested just splitting the ones I'm taking in two along the line on the tablet. Shows you how well he knows the drug---these particular tablets don't have that line. I also question whether this is a good way to change dosages.

Does anyone know what might cause the discharge? Would adjusting my HRT help? Is there a natural treatment that has worked for you? Would appreciate any input! TIA!

Vaginal Discharge

Hi Zella --
not too long back I was diagnosed with a yeast infection........doc gave me Diflucan and it went away but afterwards I still had a discharge and doc diagnosed bacterial vaginosis..........she prescribed Cleocin and it went away.

My discharge was not green but whitish........but the reason I'm posting is because the doc gave me a phamplet about bacterial vaginosis and I remembered reading about a yellow/green discharge being a symptom of something.......I dug around and found the phamplet..........a greenish discharge can be a symptom of trichomoniasis (another common vaginal infection). It's caused by a parasite (yes I know.....yuck) and the symptoms can be an unpleasant "fishy" odor, vaginal itching and/or irritation, a frothy yellow/green discharge. According to this little booklet, it requires specific antibacterial treatment available only by prescription.

I'm not a doctor, and I'm not saying this is what you have........but the greenish discharge rang a bell with me......so thought maybe you'd be interested in the info.

If it's an infection........adjusting your hrt won't do anything. If the discharge is not from an infection..........I don't know if adjusting the hrt will have any benefits or not. As for a natural treatment...........have you tried taking acidopholus as a prevention against the yeast infections? I started taking it when I had that last yeast infection. I hadn't had one in years, but I was on antibiotics for 3 weeks after having some root canals done and that caused the yeast infection. Several women here told me they take acidopholus daily to help prevent yeast infections and up the dose if they have to take antibiotics. You can get the acidopholus almost anywhere vitamins are sold.

Good luck to you!

Vaginal Discharge

Hi,
that's interesting--I had trichomoniasis o nce myself, in my twenties, when I was living in Germany. I remember that my boyfriend had to treat himself as well, or he would have just reinfected me....Something to keep in mind...

good luck!

Thanks you two!

Still need to make an appt. with the dr., but am grateful for your input. I did a little searching on the web and am almost positive it isn't tricho. Probably a low-grade yeast infection. I will have to take extra precautions against reinfection after I get treated. Thanks for the acidopholus suggestion. I'll give that a try!

While I was here, decided to pick up my crown. This site has been such a big help and it was about time!
