Hi! Is it possible for sibo (small intestinal bacteria

Patient

Q: Hi! Is it possible for sibo (small intestinal bbacteria overgrowth) to affect your vagina? I'd had greasy stools, (fat in stool) but now i have brown stuffing my discharge. Is this possible?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
No, bacterial overgrowth does not affect the vagina in any way.
Brownish discharge indicates an infection, and it is better you get it evaluated by a gynaecologist who can do a transvaginal scan if required.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards.
