I got my paraguard on June 2, had minimal bleeding....then snot looking discharge for a few weeks. Now it's more normal...but yet it's watery and clear. And Now i notice a distinct odor. It's not fishy....but it's a odor...and I know it's not a normal odor for me. I mean it might be normal for a paraguard....but i'm wondering if anyone else noticed a distinct odor with their paraguard. I want to ask my husband what he thinks...but...i'm almost embarased to ask him. We are living in the Dominican Republic right now and I do not want to try to find a doctor just to tell me it's normal. ya know....so tell me what and if you noticed a distinct odor too.
Paraguard and discharge
Well, I know that one of the relatively common side effects with paraguard is you can be prone to things like yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. (Last summer I got both at the same time, super fun times, but fortunately neither came back). What you're describing could be BV, which has no real side effects other than causing a slight odor. They can diagnose it in like 5 minutes at the OB/GYN, and it's easily treatable with a suppository or pill.
I think it is BV, i did some research online and found some natural remedies for it. I've started those and pray pray pray that it start to help ASAP! If no improvement in a few days i will go get the meds then. Here in the Dominican you can purchase anything from the pharmacy. So i dont have to go through a doctor. Thank heavens!
