To put this bluntly, I have had this strange white discharge. Now, I've seen my discharge for years now and can tell the difference about what's normal and not. It's white and clumpy, slightly squishy, and absolutely disgusting. It doesn't have any strange odor, no itching or burning sensation. Though I do have a strange tingling sensation at times and the clitoris area is slightly sore. Now, I'm putting this up to sex with my partner last weekend. It started afterwards and we had used lubricant. I believe it's a reaction from the lubricant or an antibiotic that I'm currently taking. Any idea on what this is and what I can do for it? I live in Korea, so it's difficult to visit a doctor that speaks English and I don't know of any gynos in the area.
White clumpy discharge is suggestive of Candidiasis infection and if not treated properly can be recurrent and can be transmitted from partner.Some suggestions for you:
Wash the area twice with Tea Tree oil mixed in water.
Pat dry and then apply any topical antifungal ointment if available OTC.
Wear loose cotton undies.
Have lots of yoghurt in diet regularly.
Avoid unprotected intercourse,douching and tampoon usage as it might aggravate the infection.
If the symptoms persist or worsen then it would require proper evaluation and prescription medications so consider visiting a Gynaecologist for examination.
