Ob/gyn vaginal dryness


Q: Grayish like substance and vaginal bleeding, mild discomfort what could it be?

Symptoms:  Vaginal bleeding , grayish tissue substance, mild pain

A:   Hi
Thank you for the question.

Most women experience minor vaginal problems from time to time. A change in your normal vaginal discharge may be the first sign of a vaginal problem. Changes in urination, such as having to urinate more frequently or having a burning feeling when you urinate, also may be a symptom of a vaginal problem.

Conditions that may cause a change in your normal vaginal discharge include:
-Infections of the vagina, such as a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis, human papillomavirus (HPV), or herpes.
-Infection of the cervix (cervicitis).
-An object in the vagina, such as a forgotten tampon.
-Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), such as chlamydia or gonorrhea.
-Various sex practices, such as oral-to-vaginal and anal-to-vaginal contact.
-Vaginal medicines or douching. Common symptoms of vaginal infection include:
-Increase or change in the vaginal discharge, including gray, green, or yellow discharge.
-Vaginal redness, swelling, itching, or pain.
-Vaginal odor.
-Burning with urination.
-Pain or bleeding with sex.

If the problem continues then talk to your Doctor.
I hope this will help you. Take care.
