Weird discharge (possible TMI)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey mamas...
Have a question for you all. I have had some sort of vaginitis the past three or so weeks (basically since lochia stopped). Breastfeeding full-time and co-sleeping (so all those hormones in full-gear or full stop). Been treating it myself with probiotics, soaking in comfrey, vinegar, goldenseal, garlic, also extra b vits and zinc and grapefruit seed extract and cutting all simple sugars out of diet. The main symptom of this is itching but a weird discharge also--sort of like yellow / brown, not much, just a couple drops a day. I'd say it's blood (consistency dried) but it's no color like blood. Been discharged from my m/w practice already (they only provide care for 6 weeks pp). The m/w there looked at it, said it didn't look like yeast, sent me on my way. Actually after my birth experience w/her I don't really trust her anyway. Doesn't seem to be getting worse, but also not much better. All I remember from pp w/DD is being super-dry, certainly not much if any discharge. Slightly worried because I had a massive tear and a pretty inexperienced person sewing me up--could this discharge be related to that? What do you all think, should I go medical model and see my GYN? I don't like him much and he doesn't like my birth choices much but he is super-competent.

It sounds like bacterial vaginitis and you probably need antibiotics - I did that w/dd1 after having stitches. Sorry you are going through it, I know it is NOT fun.

Yep I'd go medical. I had stitches and major abx but that was cause the MW's sent me to the hospital after the birth anyway.
