Gentle music Laci Oh hi, everyone! Throughout the last ten years I've had so many vaginal issues that I'm basically a certified hacker now. ding Before I get started sharing some ancient remedies and twenty first century lifesavers just a little reminder. I'm gonna be talking about vaginal infections and stuff and sometimes the symptoms of those are actually symptoms of things that are much more serious. So, yay, love your vagina and go to the doctor when you need to. First step, when yeast gets a little outta control.
Why yes, I am about to suggest that you put garlic in your vagina. I know it sounds weird but it seriously works so well. Just push in a whole clove. Don't puncture it or will burn and change that baby every twelve hours. Usually within three to five days my yeast infections are gone. Yeah, it can leave a little bit of a smell but who doesn't like garlic bread The vagina's a pocket so it's not gonna get lost but if you're worried, you can tie some floss to it so.
That you can easily pull it out. For pain relief, I put plain yogurt twith live active cultures into the fingers of a latex glove and then freeze it. Look for yogurt with the least amount of sugar that you can find 'cause yeast loves sugar and when you pull it out of the freezer you'll have these delightful, mumbling yogurt tampons. Pop one in overnight with a pad to catch the leakage. Next up, UTIs. I know, I know you've heard it before but seriously, hydration is so freaking important.
Try to be drinking a little water all day long. Second, secret weapon is DMannose. You can get this at a supplement store and I take two capsules three times a day for five days while drinking lots of water. Continue taking it a few days even after the symptoms have gone. I've also had good results with probiotics for bladder pain and take a good quality hibacteria count probiotic every day and it keeps the good bacteria in balance all over my body. Now, these are especially important for anyone who's on antibiotics.
I really wish the doctor told me that. Lastly, what would a vagina tutorial be without discussing periods I am a firm believer that every single vagina owner should be tracking their cycle. And my favorite app to that is called Clue. I randomly came across it and I love the gender neutral interface and the clean, simple design. It's super easy to use. It helped me figure out that this pain I was feeling was ovulation pain. It also tells me the exact day my period will start, when I'm gonna have symptoms,.
When I'm fertile for babymakin'. Totally recommend it. I'll put the link down below. I always break out on my periods which is annoying, and it can hurt, and I found that tea tree oil really helps to soothe my skin. I just put a little dab on my zits before bed and in the morning they're gone or way less inflamed. For cramps, I'm a huge fan of heating pads. They help so much and I really like the ones that you can strap on on the go. You can get these heating pads literally anywhere.
How Many Days After My Period is Ovulation
How many days after my period is ovulation I need to know. Ovulation is half way through the average cycle. Is that half way based on first bleeding or when I stop bleeding or what Day one is when the lining starts to shed. AKA, it is really obvious once you start bleeding. You stop bleeding anywhere from day three to day seven. Obviously you do not ovulate at that point. Ovulation can occur anywhere from day 10 to day 24. So on a day 14, that is two days after my period started, is when I ovulate.
Right. And ovulation will be seven to ten days after your period ended, on average, depending on how long it lasts. Ovulation is not always on day 14. So track your menstrual cycle, and you'll figure out which day is half way. Except that you said it could be half way plus or minus a couple days. On a 30 day cycle, 3 days is a ten percent margin of error, while the egg only lasts one. You will see changes to indicate when you ovulated, such as the cervical mucus changing.
I hardly even notice it except when bleeding or fish smelling. A fish smell means you have a yeast infection. Bleeding usually means you have your period, an STD with lesions causing bleeding or, for only a few, dried blood drops because your ovary released a little blood when the egg came out. But a few drops of blood on the panties can also mean an embryo implanted. You'll ovulate between day 13 and day 15 for most women, counting from the day your period started. An embryo implanting will be three to seven days after that.
So a few drops of blood a few days before my period is due means I'm pregnant. It might mean you are pregnant, or you used too much douche or half a dozen other reasons. And anything but pregnancy and feminine hygiene is bad. You'll ovulate a week to a week and a half after your period ends, but I'd say the cervical mucus turning clear and watery instead of thick and gooey or your BBT going up is a better indicator than a calendar. What is BBT BBT stands for basal body temperature, your body temperature at rest. It spikes the day.
Vaginal Discharge During Pregnancy
I want your opinion of vaginal discharge during pregnancy. If you have a sudden white mucus plug come out, you're about to end the pregnancy and go into labor. I'm not that far along. The vaginal discharge will go back to white and thick after you ovulate. If you conceive, there may be drops of blood mixed in, or just brown or orange streaks in the discharge. I'm a little farther along than that. The vaginal discharge usually increases in volume during pregnancy, starting after implantation. However, it remains white and thick throughout unless something is wrong.
I know any red blood in vaginal discharge is dangerous, whether a sign of a miscarriage or uterine tear or something else only the doctor will know. When you are pregnant, any bleeding is a reason to go to the ER. Fortunately, I'm not seeing that type of vaginal discharge. You'll normally see more white and thick vaginal discharge. Some women wear menstrual pads when pregnant to contain it. That sounds fishy to me. I didn't think I'd need diapers until after I had the kid. If the vaginal discharge smells fishy or like vinegar, you have a yeast infection.
I can't even take a pain reliever right now. What do I do about a yeast infection It is safe to use over the counter yeast infection treatment when pregnant, and you may need several. Pregnancy throws off your pH balance and makes yeast infections much more likely. Glad I don't have that fishy smell down there, then. It is thick and offcolor though. If it is green or yellow, you may have a bacterial overgrowth. That's dangerous during pregnancy. It could make things smell, and you do want to talk to a doctor about it. However, if.
There are any lesions, itching and other signs of a social disease, you have to talk to a doctor. Technically, life is sexually transmitted. A sexually transmitted disease contracted before or during pregnancy puts the kid at risk, and it may be flaring up worse while pregnant because pregnancy compromises the immune system. Yes, I'd talk to the doctor if I was worried about it, but I am not. Then you'll just see more white and thick discharge. It would have increased in volume as the cervix thickened and rose up from the low point after ovulation.
How to Check Your Cervix for Signs of Pregnancy
I want to know how to check your cervix for signs of pregnancy. That's not exactly something easy to check. I've heard you could check, without relying on a doctor or nurse and sitting in stirrups. It is normally low and hard. Well lower, since too low is a prolapse, which is bad. I heard that during ovulation, it is usually lower than normal. And that it feels like a nose tip. If you got pregnant, it will rise back up toward its normal level. It does that if I did not get pregnant too, before my period starts.
It will become softer, which is called ripening. As long as it does not smell. Pregnant women are prone to more yeast infections. I do not know if I'm pregnant yet. The cervix will be soft when it rises back up, but not as hard and continually softening. What makes it soft After the embryo implants, it bloats with blood. However, it sometimes rises up high enough that women cannot feel that physical change with their long middle finger. And I do not want to have sex again to get his opinion of the feeling.
I know what you can feel for yourself. I'm afraid to ask. The cervical mucus is watery and nearly clear when you ovulate. That's to let the sperm through. The cervical mucus is more white and thicker when you're not pregnant. I'd only know that I'm not pregnant by the cervical mucus if I tracked that before. If you got pregnant, you'd see more cervical discharge. However, whether it is watery and clear or heavy and light depends on your body type. Will it be like a period No, but if you have your period, you know you are not pregnant.
I've heard pregnancy can cause light spotting. If you see red drops in the cervical mucus, you probably implanted. If the mucus has an orange tint from blood drops mixing with the mucus, that may be a sign of pregnancy. Or an STD. How else can I tell Stop trying to divine bodily fluids and go buy an early pregnancy test. I'll be testing for a while before I'm certain of the answer. Wait a couple of months, and you may be asking me about the cervix changes that indicate that you're going into labor.
Vaginal Discharge During Menopause
I need your input on vaginal discharge during menopause. When you're going through menopause, you'll have your period less often or less intensely before it finally shuts off. I know menopause isn't an off switch but more a slow fade. When you're going through menopause, you'll see similar shifts in vaginal discharge like white and sticky to dry right before your period, but you may not see the clear and slippery phase for ovulation. Because I might not ovulate. However, when you're going through menopause, there's still a chance you'll get pregnant.
And have a kid with a higher risk of health problems. Or multiples. As your eggs hit their expiration date, the body offsets it by releasing multiple eggs. What other vaginal discharge should I expect during menopause If it starts to smell sweet down there, you're probably developing diabetes especially so if the urine smells sweet and looks like syrup too. A rash of repeated yeast infections can be a symptom of diabetes too. And your odds of adult onset diabetes go up with age. What else should I know.
With age, the vaginal discharge goes down, which is why older women tend to need lubrication, since the body doesn't make as much. And while a lack of lubrication and make you more sensitive to yeast and bacterial infections, using too much lubrication can alter pH levels and do the same. You'll know you have one of those infections by the foul smelling discharge if it is bacterial and the fish smell with yellow and solid masses if yeast based. Fortunately, I haven't had to do a smell test to see what is wrong.
If you get red or brown vaginal discharge, you'll probably want to talk to a doctor. We already discussed how your period fades away at this age. Yes, but red blood that's constant indicates lesions or a serious infection, while brown blood can be a period that's not complete or internal bleeding. Okay, that's a reason to talk to the doctor. And just because you don't have to use birth control anymore doesn't mean you don't have to use birth control. Menopause is all natural birth control. Just because you can't get pregnant anymore doesn't mean you can't get a sexually.
Why is My Ovulation Discharge Brown
Why is my ovulation discharge brown Are you sure it is not the start of your period Wrong time of the month for that time of the month. It is possible that the rupturing of the follicle containing the egg released a few drops of blood. You'd think that came out as red. If the blood is fresh, sure. When it takes a couple days to migrate down from the ovary through the uterus, it comes out brown. So that explains it. Not necessarily. The other reason you see discharge a couple days after ovulation is.
The implantation of the embryo. That I would expect to be red. Unless it is really mixed with cervical mucus. Unless it takes time to eventually dissipate. Why else might I have brown discharge Brown usually means blood. You can have brown discharge due to abnormal vaginal bleeding. So this is not normal. You could have an untreated social disease, and the act of trying to get pregnant got the sores aggravated instead. I'd need to see a doctor to get that treated before I had sex again. In some cases, you get brown discharge when ovulating if you had endometrial cancer or.
Ovarian cancer. However, that's rare. Good, because I do not need another reason to get paranoid searching medical databases on symptoms. Go to red alert status and the doctor if the brown discharge when you ovulate accompanies pelvic pain that isn't a ten minute twinge when the ovary releases an egg. I'm not one of the twenty percent of women who get ovarian pain when the egg releases. It could be as simple as drying out of the vaginal walls with age and sex trying to get pregnant causing minor injuries.
I know that would be the cause if I used so much feminine hygiene stuff that it irritated things. If you have urinary incontinence along with a yellow or brown discharge, it is probably gonorrhea. And I thought it might be something I could treat myself like a yeast infection. If it is yellow discharge or green, you either have trichomoiasis, gonorrhea or some other reason to see the doctor. I do not think it is a social disease though. Then you may have bleeding somewhere you should not and need to get checked out anyway.
Signs Ovulation Has Already Occurred
I want to know the signs ovulation has already occurred. Your period coming is a sign you probably ovulated. I want to know if I've ovulated to get pregnant, and a period is proof that did not happen. You only have a one day period or so to get pregnant. I want to know when that is. If the doctor is checking your fertility due to health issues, they can see that you've ovulated via a sonogram. I cannot afford to do any more ultrasounds than the standard one to confirm a pregnancy.
So look at the basal body temperature chart. That's a measurement of the temperatures internally. Track it each day so you know your baseline and variation. What variation are you looking for When the basal body temperature rises, that is the day after you ovulated. Then I need to know that value as well as recognize it to know that ovulation has already occurred. Some women get cramping in the middle of their cycle as a sign of ovulation. That's only one in five. If you get cramps on one side but not the other and you do not have it the next day,.
You probably ovulated. And I thought PMS was bad. These cramps are not as bad as PMS, but few women get them. Most women though see changes in the cervical mucus. It is all the same to me except for when I have a yeast infection. The discharge is normally thick and white, but it becomes clear and watery when you ovulate. You know you've ovulated and passed the fertile time when it switches back to thick and white. And there's a chance I'm pregnant if the discharge spikes. I'd say morning sickness is a more certain sign of pregnancy. If you want to be certain.
You've ovulated, buy ovulation tests. I do not want to have a stack of ovulation tests in the bathroom, much less in addition to a stack of pregnancy tests. Using ovulation tests will indicate when the lutenizing hormone levels peaked, and when the ovulation test says that hormone is falling, you know when ovulation occurred. So that's what the LH on the box means. What are other signs I've ovulated Studies show that women get more flirty and wear more red when they are ovulating, as if the hormones make you more likely to have sex when you can conceive.
Why is There Blood in My Discharge During Ovulation
Why is there blood in my discharge during ovulation Are you sure you are not a week off on your ovulation date Ovulation usually happens half way through the menstrual cycle. And implantation occurs a couple days later. If you are off on your ovulation date, you'll think that there's blood while ovulating when it is evidence you ovulated and conceived. The blood happens when the embryo implants. However, that will be mixed with the white mucus that is normal, not the clear, watery mucus from when you ovulate. Okay, so you're tracking cervical mucus to know when fertile. Do you know if your.
Sex was too rough last night, and that's why you're bleeding I could not even stand to read that Fifty Shades book. You could have some blood in your discharge if you were dry too, due to minor tears in the vaginal lining. I cannot imagine how that happened. Some so called feminine hygiene products alter the pH down there, making yeast infections more likely, as well as dry you out. Then you get minor tears while having sex. That would explain the blood if I used those products. You could also have blood in the cervical mucus because you have an STD.
Do not start with that joke that life is a sexually transmitted disease. I'm talking about STDs that create lesions and sores that can bleed. It is often missed by women because it is not as obvious as the organ guys are looking at every time they go to the bathroom. If I have an STD, I definitely need to talk to a doctor. It also means you should not have sex until you know it is not due to an STD. I've heard it is normal and that it is bad. I just do not want to have to ask a doctor.
Which. Trace amounts of blood due to the ruptured ovary follicle will be brown or pink because it is old by the time it gets out, not red like menstrual blood. Menstrual blood at the start of a menstrual cycle can be brown too. And at the end. But ovulation bleeding may be pink too, because it is mixed with lotiontype cervical mucus. I'm not tracking my cervical mucus. The cervical mucus is a way better indicator of fertility than checking your underwear for blood spots that may not be there.
What Kind of Discharge Do You Have During Pregnancy
What kind of discharge do you have during pregnancy It's like a waterfall. Excuse me Vaginal discharge is normal for all women, and it just gets worse during pregnancy. It's embarrassing. So wear absorbent pads so it doesn't affect your clothes. You can use the same pads you do when you are having your period. I noticed spotting around the time I conceived, though it wasn't nearly as much as a period. And you probably saw white discharge after you conceived. I was worried it might be an STD. If you think you have an STD, you need to get treated now so that it doesn't adversely.
Affect the baby. There are horrifying Google images of birth defects caused by sexually transmitted diseases. I'm already paranoid about the baby. I don't even want to dye my hair, paint my nails or do anything else. Brown discharge sometimes happens, especially after minor vaginal tears after sex. However, if you see bright red blood, you need to see a doctor. Because I'm miscarrying. Or the placenta is separating, or you have placenta previa. Or you're in labor, early or not. What if it is another color like yellow or green.
You might have a yeast infection or STD. Pregnant women, especially those with high blood sugar, are at risk of horrible yeast infections. And what if it is clear It might be normal discharge, or you might be losing amniotic fluid. If in doubt, you need to get tested. Very much so. What if it is a big glob Then you might have lost the mucus plug, and then you need to see the doctor because it's a sign of labor. How do you know all this Believe me, I have seen it all.
Cervical Mucus Just Before Period Starts
I want to know what to expect in cervical mucus just before period starts. Your cervical mucus alternates between clear, watery and flowing when ovulating to sticky, white and gooey during normal times. And it gets overwhelmed by menstrual fluid when I have my period. So what does it normally look like right before I have my period If you are about to not have your period due to pregnancy, you'll probably see heavy mucus and even solid masses. Solid masses and really heavy cervical mucus can also be a sign of a sexually transmitted.
Disease. If the cervical mucus is yellow, green or really smelly, you have an infection at best, it is severe yeast overgrowth. I know what that smells like. If you are healthy, then the cervical mucus will start to dry out before your period starts, since the body does not want to waste material when you're about to shed. I've heard there were other signs if I was pregnant. If you were pregnant, you might see drops of blood mixed in with the cervical mucus when the embryo implants. Or not, since it may not be enough to notice.
The lack of a period is something I'd notice. The cervical mucus typically becomes drier, stickier and thicker right before your period. It is normally, sticky and thick. Fine, more of the same. What happens after my period starts It becomes dry or you find no mucus at all, just menstrual shedding. After your period ends, the white cervical mucus starts up, which can make your mix pinkish. I'd say this sounds disgusting, but then I saw what newborn diapers looked like. The only standard effect is clear, watery and clear mucus when you are ovulating, unless.
You have health problems interfering with ovulation. Or contraception that interferes with it. Depending on what you're using for contraception, that can happen. Injectables can kill your period, ovulation and all cervical mucus changes. I am ovulating with my contraceptive method. Then you'll see heavier mucus after you ovulate, usually white in color and thicker than it was before you ovulated. Anything else I might notice If you do not see much difference in consistency, you may still see differences in the volume, which usually drops off right before your period.
