Vaginal Discharge

My vagina has been itching lately and the discharge is sticky and it seems that I have a yeast infection. I’m too scared to tell my mom and I was just thinking about buying a cream from the store to cure it but should I get a doctors input before. I really don’t want to go to the doctors because then I would have to tell my mom.

You should see a health care provider before starting treatment.   In the state of michigan you do not need a parents consent to see a health care provider for a sexual health problem. (That includes yeast infections.)  Sometimes it is easier to talk it over with our mom's than we think it will be. 

You can call Corner Health to schedule an appointment. 

I currently live in Japan. My pregnancy test showed positive so I went to the doctor. I started spotting right then, so she checked inside but couldn't see any fetus, so she said it might have been a late period. But then she checked my pee and it said positive again. She told me to stay home in bed and cancel work and appointments. I don't know what to make of this... I thought miscarriages this early couldn't be helped even if I laid in bed all day

You are correct studies have shown that bedrest does not decrease the risk of miscarriage.

And there are some risks with bedrest, including feeling depressed and anxious, blood clots, financial worries.  

You may opt to get a second opion or talk to your dr again about why they think you should be on bedrest  

Im 16 years old and I’ve had only sexual relations with one person . But I have this problem, for some reason I have a vaginal odor and I can’t seem to get rid of it. I’ve tried different natural products but nothing seems to work . I’ve washed myself with unscented soaps down there. But nothing seems to work . And even before I had sex, I knew Something was up with the way my vagina smelled. Please help, this problem is embarrassing and i don’t know what else to do or who to go to

There are different reasons for vaginal odors.

Please schedule an appointment to be seen at Corner Health or with your health care provider. 

Hello, I am 18. From a few months ago, my vaginal odor has been sweet-smelling. I did not think much of this until my vaginal discharge started changing from clear/whitish and thick to whitish/yellowish and stringy (a month ago). Upon googling, I realised this could be a yeast infection, which corresponded to another symptom I had: vaginal itching (for an unknown duration). I was relatively sure I had a yeast infection, so I went to a Pharmacy and described my symptoms. The pharmacist instructed me to take a single dose of fluconazole, after which (the next day) my vaginal discharge was clear and I did not notice any vaginal odor. A week after, the vaginal itching stopped. But, a few weeks later (now), I find that the sweet smell has returned and my vaginal discharge is now whitish/yellow (though not stringy). What could be the reasons why? I have never been sexually active so it cannot be a sexually transmitted disease. Please help me figure out my next course of action, is it possible that changes have occurred and this is in line with a normal vagina (a sweet smell)? Many websites suggest visiting a doctor but that is not feasible for me.

What you describe does sound like a yeast infection.  It would be best to come to Corner Health for further evaluation.

You may need a longer treatment and it is always important to see if there is any health reason you may be getting a yeast infection.

Is it normal that every time I stop having sex for more than a week, the next time I have a light bleeding not red but more like a pinky color even when we are in the foreplay and introduces his fingers in my vagina that kind of pinky light "discharge" appears does that could mean anything serious? Can I do something about it ?

Your problem may be that you do not have enough vaginal lubrication.  Try using a water-based vaginal lubricant which you can get at the drug store or online.    If you do not find that it helps your situation please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner health center. 

I'm 15 and when I started having my period at 13 it was regular but over the past few months had become irregular and I am currently 46 days without a period since the first day of my last period. I have been having a lot of discharge which changes color and consistency throughout the day and a few days ago I had blood tinged discharge and I'm not sure if that was ovulation because of how irregular my cycle has been.

Many women go through times when periods are irregular.  Often it is due to hormonal changes from stress, illness, change etc.  Sometimes there is an underlying reason that needs more medical attention 

You should schedule an appointment with your primary care provider /dr. or call Corner Health to schedule an appointment .  

Im having a weird discharge and it comes out a lot frequently. First it was thick and clumpy which happens before I start my period. But it started getting very watery and yellowish and come out a lot. I can feel it when moving around. I thought it would go away after my period but it’s still here. The last time I had sex was 2 weeks ago and a condom was used. I’m scared I have a std or something. I just want this discharge to go away.

An increase or change in vaginal discharge can be caused by different things including stis.  Please schedule an appointment with your PCP or at Corner health center to get it checked.  

I have had discharge since i was 10 I'm 14 and i don't think it is before first period discharge cause if it was i would of gotten it 2 years before my period so, also it is a nonstop recurrence i haven't lived a day after 10 without discharge and its kinda worrying.

Most women have discharge that starts at puberty, age when periods begin.  Sometimes discharge changes or increases because of products /soaps, creams that are used.  If you are sexually active discharge can be a sign of infection.  If your discharge is concerning please schedule an appointment to talk about this with your dr.  Or schedule an appointment at Corner health.   

hi there. I've had rough sex with my boyfriend 5 nights ago and its sore to urinate. The skin surrounding my vagina have a red and yellow/white patch on them. Its like a sore, I've had it two or three times before and it usually goes away and doesn't happen all the time me and my partner have sex. Please what is going on?

Hi

It is difficult to know without an examination.  Please schedule to come to Corner Heath or see your doctor.

It is best to evaluate while you have the sore.

Lately, even after I shower right before sex, my vagina will have a fishy odor following the act. Or my bf and I will have sex and go to bed, and the next day, it smells so fishy down there. Is this me? Or him? Or the combination of us both? How do I prevent it?

The symptoms you describe suggest you may have bacterial vaginosis.  This is an imbalance of the vaginal fluids.  Please schedule an appointment to check it out and receive treatment as well as learn ways to prevent it in the future.
