Lisa: Vagina has discharge normally and it’s a complain I hear all the time about just having irregular discharge and it’s number 8 on our countdown and the vagina is constantly cleaning itself, you know you’ve heard me talk about the self-cleaning happening all the time and it varies depending on when a woman is in a different part of her cycle, if she has an infection, if she has changes in her hormone levels. You want to look at the different colors as well as the consistency and the smell. So all of that tells me what I think, so when I’m doing an exam, I’ll ask you know, is it more than your usual, is it a different color, does it have an odor to it? Those three things tell me a lot of things.
Travis: Because sometimes the oven gets broken.
Lisa: Exactly and this is -- way of overheating and saying help, fix me, fix me. So normal discharge is going to be clear and at different times in our cycle like when we’re ovulating, it may have a little more sticky texture to it and that’s because of the different levels of hormones, then you may also have, at the end of your period, you may have a little reddish discharge and that’s just because of old blood, if the blood gets older it gets brown.
Now if it starts to get green, okay, if anybody says green or gray and has an odor, then that’s more typical of a bacterial infection and that’s definitely something that needs to be treated with antibiotics. And then that cottage cheesy white, thick discharge that’s usually typical of yeast.
So, so many things that you can tell but really to be sure, you need to see your doctor and get a culture unless it’s really typical but that’s your vagina’s way of saying, “hello, I need help.”
Travis: I need help. I need a repairman to come in and that repairman is your OB-GYN.
Lisa: That’s right.
Travis: To check you out and make sure everything’s okay.
Lisa: Yeah, absolutely. You don’t want to wait until you know -- I have patients, they’re coming in, their partner says, “You got to do something about down there.”
Travis: That’s actually usually when they come to the ER.
