    Happy to help. You didn’t say exactly what you have been tested for. It might help if you haven’t already to go to a specific Sexual Health Clinic. To find one look under “Where can I get tested?” on the Playsafe Website. That being said the amount of vaginal discharge can vary a lot from woman to woman. It can be a very normal thing. One thing I usually recommend for women who find their amount of discharge to be of concern is to start avoiding any soaps of any kind. This can help to avoid the vagina becoming too alkaline which can sometimes contribute. Using just warm water to wash the genitals is all you need.

    ive been tested for STDs and BV and all the rest that can be tested via pap smears and swaps and also bloods as well. not sure what else but you would probably know. but so fa everythings come back clear except the hpv. i got tested via my gp clinic where a sexual health nurse is there.
    i dont use soaps in that area as ive been told not to so its just warm water

    @unknown it’s great to hear that you got checked for STIs & that you’re washing with warm water :). The vagina in fact is self cleaning & that’s why a discharge occurs. It’s really common for women to experience changes over time. A next step which may help is to visit a womens’ health nurse or a Family Planning clinic. They specialize in womens’ health & may assess the amount of discharge & check if there’s any other causes triggering it.

    I went to a womens health nurse and shes the one who did the pap smear and std tests 

    I questioned her about the discharge and she said its ‘probably’ just normal

    At first we thought it was that condition where it does produce too much discharge and causes wetness
     Cant think of the name at this minute though

    @unknown, as you’ve noticed an vaginal discharge & odour book an appointment with a doctor at a Family Planning Clinic. Bacterial Vaginosis is a condition that sounds similar however you said that test was negative. A doctor may investigate this further or consider treatment to assess if it improves.

    ok thank you i see my gp to get blood work back tomorrow so ill ask her about it then as well- she might end up referring me to a gynacologist-
    would that be better as they specialise in that area?

    @unknown, that’s a good idea to talk to your GP about it. Your doctor will advise who is best to refer you to.

    Let me know how it goes today @unknown. If you need further information or referral call the NSW Sexual Health Infolink on 1800 451 624 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5.30pm) & talk to a sexual health nurse anonymously. They can provide you with referral options too.

    Hi @unknown Vagasil wash is just a brand of wash specifically designed for down there (something I’ve been recommended before).

    You can find it at any pharmacy, or you can find similar products in a different brand in supermarkets (usually in the same section as pads and tampons). It comes in many formulations, so read the bottles and pick which works for you.
