So for a few months now, I have had booger-like discharge from my vagina. I do not know the cause. It started in February either right before, during, or after I had strep throat. It's almost everyday and don't ask, but it's sour tasting.. I want to know what it is and what to do.. It's freaking me out and now that I have a new boyfriend, I'm not wanting to do sexual stuff. I did have sex with him once, protected, yesterday actually.. I wouldn't let him 'go down' on me because I know it tastes icky and I'm weird about it now. It tasted normal about the middle of May because I had oral and he said it tasted like normal. A little copperish though. So yeah, help me out? OH! I stopped using birth control towards the end of February and started taking them today in hopes it ends it..
Welcome to ehealthforum,
You need to get the âdischargeâ coming out of vagina tested to see if there is any infection. This can be done by discussing with your gynecologist for an examination and vaginal swab test.
If any infection is found to be present, get both you and your boyfriend treated simultaneously and avoid having unprotected intercourse while being on the treatment to avoid chances of re-infection.
