Does A Yeast Infection Have A Fishy Smell
Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath with anotherfrequently asked question regarding yeast infection. Does a yeast infection have a fishy smell? Not really. You shouldn't have a fish brinysort of vaginal sort of smell with a yeast infection. A yeast infection smell is moreof a musty sort of smell. It can be a cheesy discharge and a lot of itch. When I think of a fish smell, I'm thinkingmore about bacterial vaginosis, which tends to have a different type of watery, profuse,gray sort of discharge with that fish brine
smell. So you should not really have a fishysmell with a Candida infection. But you can have a strong odor, though, which may be misconstruedas a fish smell, but not really. So I hope that answers your question. My book explains quite a lot about this wholething, and in Chapter 3, you can read about the diagnosing, testing, and identifying ofyeast infections. There's a whole section on the different types of vaginal afflictions,including inflammations and conditions affecting the vagina. You can read all about those,Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Herpes, Candida, Bacterial Vaginosis, and I explain all the signs andsymptoms, what you're likely to experience,
if there's any discharge, the odor, what kindof itch you're likely to get, it's all in the book. So you can read a lot more aboutthat in Candida Crusher. Hope that answers your question. Thank you.
My Vaginal Discharge Smells Like Fish
My vaginal discharge smells like fish. I'm assuming this couldn't possibly bedue to a messy fish and chips dinner. No, way more intimate than someone constantlyspilling dinner in my lap. Then the most likely cause is due to an infection. I don't think I have a social disease. Well,I hope I don't have a sexual disease. If you have bacterial vaginosis caused bythe overgrowth of bacteria naturally down there, you can end up with a fishy odor. How could I have developed that?
So much douching to remove any odor that youstripped away healthy bacteria, leaving the bad ones a fertile playground. If you said that about my digestive tract,the solution would be probiotics. If you have that type of discharge, you cantreat it by eating yogurt and hoping that circulates through your system to the vagina.Or you can take the direct route and put yogurt up there. That's as embarrassing to admit as a coloncleanse. You know that it is bacterial overgrowth ifit is worse after you have sex or if you're
suffering a UTI too. I don't see how a UTI could cause this. If you're wiping back to front, the poopbacteria that get into the urinary tract and cause a UTI will cause vaginosis too. What's a reason that doesn't have to dowith a playground being between two sewers? A fishy odor accompanied by a green dischargemeans you have trichomoniasis. It is sometimes called just trich, pronounced trick. *That I've heard of, but I don't knowanything about it.
Trichomoniasis is a protozoan infection, andit causes a sour or fishy smell. Then trich is a sexual disease. Yes, and they can cure it with antibiotics. What else could it be? If it smells like rotted meat down there,you may have forgotten a tampon. That's what can cause toxic shock syndrome. Yes, and rotted fish smells means you havethe vaginosis or severe yeast infection, plus the bacteria that can cause toxic shock syndrome.
Anything on that list necessitates gettingto a , and after which, only using ultrathick maxi pads. If the vaginal discharge smells bad and lookslike curds, you have a yeast infection. It is also more likely if the itching is bad,skin is red and it hurts when you pee or have sex. At least that I can treat with stuff fromthe store. And any other cause requires talking to a, yogurt or not.
