Bacterial vaginal problem lately

Resolved Question:

I am 27 year old female and have been sexually active since my teens. But I am facing a vaginal problem lately. Every time after sex, a small quantity of white fluid is discharged from my vagina, although I don’t feel any pain, but this fluid has extremely foul odour and I can’t bear it. Also it becomes awkward and quite ugly to face my partner in that situation. I planning to get married in coming years and this problem is causing a great trouble for me.

It is always preferable to consult someone in issues like this. As you have mentioned that you were active sexually from your teens and at present facing a vaginal problem. First I would tell that the name of your problem is Bacterial vaginitis, and is caused in many cases caused by a bacterial overgrowth in vagina. Albeit, not dangerous, it can have really worrying symptoms. First measure to cure this problem is to stop having sex for a while and then keep the hygiene in the vaginal area. Also you should consult a doctor or a GP as soon as possible as delay might result some other bacterial infection of vagina.
