Having a female discharge can be alarming I know from experience. However it doesn't always mean that there is something wrong or you have an infection.
You could have a discharge for a couple of days around your menstrual cycle. This is perfectly normal if it is a thin and clear and will go away on its own.
We can identify two completely different types of infections through your female discharge. These very common infections are yeast and bacterial, each one has a different color and odor.
A light white almost clear to a thick bright white discharge with the consistency of cottage cheese is a candida infection. This should have very little to no odor and be quite itchy around the vagina. It is the most common symptom of a yeast infection.
You can clear the symptoms of a yeast infection easily. But you should kill all the candida in your body to insure that you won't have a reoccurring problem. It's so frustrating to keep getting this female discharge, it's worth it to do it right the first time. Sure there are over the counter medications that will alleviate the symptoms fast but they don't attack the root of the problem.
A word to the wise a yeast infection can be sexual transmitted between you and your partner. Yep, you guessed it I found that out the hard way. Me and my husband were had no idea that could happen. So I gave it to him and cured myself only to have him give it right back to me.
Men generally don't have symptoms of a yeast infection and just carry it. Of course the was before i knew the real trick to just kill all the candida in your entire body. The funny thing is it's so simple with the right program and I was working so hard for a cure before. I just never knew.
Now if your female discharge is yellowish, again sometimes a very light yellow, to a dark yellow almost brown with more of a liquid consistency and a bad odor then you have bacterial vaginosis. The most common bacterial infection symptoms and the easiest to spot are the color and the foul odor. A bacterial infection can have some itching with it but the odor is what is so frustrating, it's just flat out embarrassing to me.
Bacterial vaginosis is a very common infection. It also is a very common mis treated infection. I seen more people trying to cure this with a yeast infection remedy and it just won't work, it's a totally different infection. You can cure this infection form the privacy of your own home, which is the way I like it, but you have to do it through the right method.
Bacterial vaginosis is not a sexually transmitted infection like a candida infection. However I would tell you to get this cleared up as soon as possible. Bacterial vaginosis can cause a lot of problems, especially if you’re pregnant. Besides its easy if you follow the right steps and there is no sense having it any longer now that you know what it is.
