Vaginal discharge: which is normal and which

Every­thing you need to know about secre­tions Anna Polosenkoobste­tri­cian-gyne­col­o­gist of the repro­duc­tive health clin­ic “ICSI Clin­ic”.

Vaginal discharge types

When we talk about the gen­i­tals (male or female), we are sur­prised to real­ize that very lit­tle is actu­al­ly known about them. All this veil of secre­cy that envelops our gen­i­tals is woven from shame, var­i­ous fears and myths.

When refer­ring to the gen­i­tals in Eng­lish, the Latin word puden­da is used, which means “obscene”; in Dutch — Schaamde­len, in Ger­man — Schamteile — lit­er­al­ly “shame­ful, shame­ful parts of the body.”

But you and I live in the 21st cen­tu­ry and we must love our body and know what is hap­pen­ing in it! So let’s talk about high­lights. I am sure our read­ers will find this top­ic use­ful.

Why allocations are needed

Why allocations are needed

So, why does our vagi­na need dis­charge at all and what are they like? Our vagi­na is a mucous mem­brane. And the mucous mem­brane, of course, should always be moist, and, there­fore, have a dis­charge. The secre­tions pro­duced by the secre­to­ry glands form a healthy microflo­ra inside the vagi­na.

Nor­mal secre­tions do not have a char­ac­ter­is­tic odor, they are either white or trans­par­ent. Before the onset of ovu­la­tion, their vol­ume may be larg­er. All this refers to the nat­ur­al phe­nom­e­na of the body. Vagi­nal dry­ness is not nor­mal for a woman of repro­duc­tive age. I would even say that this is not the norm even in menopause.

Just in menopause, in the absence of cer­tain hor­mones, the secre­to­ry func­tion of the mucosa decreas­es and the so-called atroph­ic col­pi­tis or var­i­ous dis­eases asso­ci­at­ed with it occur. There­fore, in my work, I use mesother­a­py, biore­vi­tal­iza­tion, plas­ma ther­a­py — mod­ern meth­ods of reju­ve­na­tion and restora­tion of the aes­thet­ics of the gen­i­tal organs by intro­duc­ing a drug based on hyaluron­ic acid under their tis­sues.

There­fore, we remem­ber once and for all that selec­tion is good and selec­tion must be present.

What discharge is normal

What discharge is considered normal

In dif­fer­ent phas­es of the men­stru­al cycle, we have dif­fer­ent dis­charge. They can range from almost dry padding at the begin­ning of the cycle to more stringy in the mid­dle of it. Nature pru­dent­ly con­ceived it so that the sper­ma­to­zoa, get­ting into us, would sail on a boat into the har­bor of the uterus and a new con­ti­nent would be opened — the con­cep­tion of a new life.

In the sec­ond phase of the men­stru­al cycle, they become more liq­uid, a dif­fer­ent, more yel­low col­or. They are not very beau­ti­ful visu­al­ly, and some­times women are con­fused by this. Although this is also one of the options for the norm.

If, nev­er­the­less, you see that the dis­charge is “not yours” — the col­or, smell, abun­dance has changed, please do not waste time on wor­ries and far-fetched fears. A trip to the gyne­col­o­gist and analy­sis of the dis­charge will help deter­mine the norm or not.

If this is not the norm, then two addi­tion­al ana­lyzes are giv­en — a cul­ture of excre­tion, which shows the growth of extra­cel­lu­lar microor­gan­isms, and PCR for 7 STDs (sex­u­al­ly trans­mit­ted dis­eases). And then we are hold­ing advice: is it nec­es­sary to do some­thing; if nec­es­sary, what exact­ly; or just sum­ma­rize that every­thing is nor­mal and you can con­tin­ue to enjoy your­self healthy, sum­mer and life!

I always tell my patients: make time for your­self! Lis­ten to your body! Talk to your­self! A healthy woman is a hap­py woman!
