I really hope some one else can relate to this.

So, I have had the worst luck when it comes to vaginal health.

I started having a horrible discharge that will spur up at random. It is accompanied by a clear liquid discharge and has the most putrid smell I've ever experienced. It seeps onto my clothing and I know others can notice it. I told my mother about it and she said that it was so strong she could smell it on me. She also said it smelled exactly like amniotic fluid.

This has gone on for about 6 months now. It comes and goes. What could it be? Also, I notice it seems to occur simultaneously when I'm feeling constipated. Do the two coincide?

It is so horribly embarrassing and such a nuisance, especially at work. The fluid comes out more also when I wear certain clothing; such as, tights, etc. and when I am nervous.

I have had a medical abortion, as well as taken the morning after pill all within that same year prior to developing this.

Any suggestions? I need to make a doctor appointment but it'd hard to find time working as a financial professional.

Thank you in advance.

SearsTower1, It might very well be a bacterial infection like bacterial vaginosis (BV). A doctor can treat it with antibiotics.

Best of luck

hi searstower1, i use to suffer with yeast infections and had a horrible smell. since high school almost 15 years, i had that smell trailing me around and was horrified that everybody knew it was me. But 3 years ago i found a homeopathic doctor who recommended i start taking probiotics to balance my yeast and bacteria levels in my body which could have been the cause of the smell and excessive discharge, so i been on yefense probiotics for 3 years now and i havent had that smell or an infection in over 2 years. i hope this helps you, that was a nightmare for me.

Thank you
Thank you both for your response.
I will call to make an appointment this week. The whole thing feels like a nightmare to me as well. Sad At least I know I'm not alone.

Thank you so much for the advice. I looked up the yefense brand of probiotics. I think I will try that. Can you buy this at a Vitamin Cottage or over-the-counter somewhere?

have you found out why you have this? I have the same problem, I also had a cyst earlier this year and it was accompanied with this horrible discharge, I am dreading the fact that it may be back Sad
