Smelly discharge after c section

Common Questions and Answers about Smelly discharge after c section


Avatar n tn Anyway, I haven't had any bleeding since I left the hospital (four days after the c-section). I've had a little bit of white or brown discharge last week, but suddenly this morning after making breakfast I started bleeding (dark red) and quite heavy, to the point I went thru 3 pads in an hour. I have a fever, but it's not really that bad at all (it's only 99.0). I don't really have any pain in my incision but I have a little cramping in my lower back.
Avatar n tn I noticed this problem shortly after I had my tubes tied but they weren'ttied thru my belly button I had an c-section and that was the way they were tied I ask an doctor about it and I was told alot of women who get there tubes tied experience this and it is nothing to worry about! But I don't feel good about that. It is on and off!
Avatar f tn I had a baby in December. I got an infection and they put me on antibiotics. 2 days later when they started to take out staples my wound open completely! They sent me home finally on Christmas Eve with a giant open wound and taught my husband how to pack and change the dressing. Home care came a few times a week. My son just turned 3 months old and it is still healing, weeping, needs to be changed daily, and hurts sometimes. I'm at my wits end.
Avatar n tn First, some background. I've been having the light brownish smelly discharge about three weeks now. It started right after taking antibiotics to treat a UTI (urinary tract infection). I took these for a day and a half, and suddenly had this weird smell. It was the end of my period, so I was confused at the time whether there really was a different kind of discharge or what. Now that my period is long gone, I know that it was unrelated to my period.
Avatar f tn I delivered my baby 3 weeks ago Tuesday by c - section & I didn't bleed much as all. It was more brown like old blood and that's all I've been having. and a few days after we were home I started smelling an unpleasant smell from my vagina. I've cleaned and cleaned it. I got on birth control yesterday and complained to my OB/GYN & she told me the old bloody usually has a funky smell. & I've had BV before and it doesn't smell like that.
Avatar n tn ii had a similar thing last year and i went to the dr and they told me i had bacterial vagintis. its an infection that can have and ordor or not, especially after sex. and discharge, like yours. gave me antibiotics and cure that sucker right up.
Avatar n tn did you wake up and see brown discharge and its not even close to your period? any brown discharge is normal. its normal before your period and after your period. sometimes 2-3 days of it.
Avatar n tn with HPV but I did get rid of a suspected wart this past year. Can you have a bacterial infection without discharge? It drives me CRAZY sometimes, the only thing that calms it is gold bond ointment, which is minty and refreshing but I'd like no itch. No "rash" that I can see, unless I give in and scratch. I take cranberry supplements to keep me flushed out for a UTI, which I was treated for last year.
Avatar n tn How long does semen discharge from your vagina after sex. I have been told that it will survive for a couple of days in there but do some women still get a semen discharge 3-4 days after having sex?
Avatar n tn Like most of you with a nipple piercing discharge complication, i.e thick white discharge even after years and after removal of the piercing, I expirience the same thing! Ughh. . And I too like to squeeze it out. Ewww.. My questions is: has anyone ever heard of or know anything about this causing infection to the baby while breast feeding?
Avatar n tn My girlfriend had ivf and had to stay after at the clinic for 4 hours with her pelvic up. my clinic let me go after 30 minutes. that made me nervous. any thoughts.
Avatar f tn This discussion is related to Problems after bowel resection. In February 2006 I had an emergency bowel resection. For no apparent reason, a large portion of my small intestine had twisted and the blood supply to my intestine had been cut off and died. About 40% of my small intestine (ileum and ileocecal valve) had to be removed. For the next 2-3 months I had horrible diarrhea after everything I ate. Within one week I went from 135 lbs. to 115 lbs.
Avatar f tn If they do youll be hurting for a few days and kinda itching down there but thats just a sign of healing but if you have nasty smelly discharge it could be an infection. And like me with my first i only got a couple of scrapes but it was still a little sore but should go away in a week or so.
Avatar n tn It was a big 4 lb benign mucinous (filled with junk) mass. The surgery was done via C-section and my recovery time was probably a week before I felt up to going to college classes and what not. I have to admit that for a year I didn't feel the same. The tumor had pushed my organs all out of whack and the doctor said it would take time for them to come back into place and it did. Like you I have a history with my sister Brittany having ovarian cancer and passing away from it.
Avatar n tn After taking the gel insert meds for the five or six days, the intense discharge smell went away. But about a week after that I went to visit my boyfriend (he is clean) and about the day after we had sex the first time over that visit, the burning started again. Overview - I have sex with my boyfriend and urinate right away afterwards. The next day I'll eat a few cranberry tablets. (The juice is too acidic for my system.) - I don't have a UTI.
Avatar n tn I'm concerned I could have an infection. Discharge is somewhat smelly, but not as bad as the first few days. This is my fourth day with this new pain. Does it seem normal? How long should I wait to call my doctor?
Avatar n tn i have to kids had a drug free delivery and a c section and didn't have this much pain..worried if this was the right choice..
Avatar f tn I'm also getting a lot more drainage down my throat and have actually had to blow my nose more these last two days than I did the first three weeks after surgery. I have been using saline spray numerous times a day since my surgery, so I can't figure out why I would start having these problems now.
Avatar n tn It's just that I read some women's stories how they got pregnant very soon after a m/c (less than a month after), so maybe it's variable but best to wait at least one month. Thanks for your comment.
Avatar f tn please could somebody give me an idea of what could be happening. my last two babies where delivered by c section ......
Avatar n tn I started feeling sick every morning (gagging but not vomiting) starting at about 10 days after the procedure. I was confirmed pregnant on day 14 after the procedure by blood test. I had the symptoms before I was confirmed positive and I also thought they were in my head, but there could be more to it. I had a failed IUI a few months before and I did not have any symptoms at all. Good luck!
560272 tn?1311353893 I am 31 yrs old, married (husband is fixed), I'm on no meds or birth control, I have 5 children (4 vaginal births, 1 c-section), last birth was 4 yrs ago. I've had no history or female problems except imbalance of hormones. And there is no family history of female problems. I am also 70 pounds overweight and have lower back pain all the time. I've had no signs of ovulation for months, so I'm not sure I've been ovulating. I also have a terrible unhealthy diet.
Avatar f tn lastly I have been reading some of the questions on this site and noticed a post about smelly vaginal discharge, which has also been an ongoing issue of mine. But I dont think Ive mentioned this to my consultant. if i do have the infection that Ive read about (sorry cant remember the name). could this be a problem when i have surgery? Should I inform him prior to my surgery day next week. Or would it be ok just to tell him on the day. 4. Many thanks for any help offered.
Avatar n tn If you are continuing to have a bad mucus discharge, or a smelly discharge, call your doc and see what he says. Could be you are getting ready to get a period, too. I know you were still bleeding some from after delivery, but it is about the time now where your "real" period may come. Or you could be ovulating and that my be where the mucus is coming from. Did you ever get on any bc?
595121 tn?1254651030 Since the Mirena I am moody and have even had a couple of depressive episodes, I have discharge that makes me feel like a smelly, leaky tap. I discharge for seven days, finally stop and start all again a week or two later. This month has been the worst, in between discharges I have a 'period' that lasts a day then disappears for a couple then comes back again... I'm done... It was a relief to read everyones posts and realise that I'm not alone.. thanks everyone.
Avatar n tn my sister has a rectocele and she suggested that to me. i pushed during labor for less than an hour but ended up having an emergency c-section if that makes any difference. i thought maybe it was vestibule bulb? but after reading more, i dont think so. i think that is the part next to the labia? besides, "flower bulbs of holland" came up when i searched that term. LOL!!! can i just tell you... vaginas are UGLY!!
Avatar n tn i just wanna comment after reading so much problems of smelly vagina over here that every girl must was her vagina afer urinating. otherwise it makes fishy smelll. alHAMDULILAH i am a muslim girl and i never faced any problem like it. and i always wash with water after urinating coz if i wont do that i wont be able to pray. secondlay i am happily married and my religion also forbade for oral or other modes of sex exapt from vagina.
Avatar n tn well the condom broke and now i have had an ammonia type smell coming from my vagina. no unusual discharge really tho. also i bled the day after intercourse. i have also had cramping..this has been goin on for the past 3 weeks.........any suggestions??
Avatar f tn In my opinon, it seems smelly when the underwear gets discharge on it, so anything you can do to keep the discharge off of your panties and stay dry would be good.
