is vaginal discharge normal in menopause? or is this normal thing for my age? i'm 56 years old and i'm having this vaginal discharge. it's very creamy but no itch or odor.

physical causes are responsible for vaginal discharge during or after menopause. emotional and daily stress could be a big factor.


felicity - September 7

hey chelsea, i think this is a normal menopause symptom. vaginal discharge should be investigated only if you're having this signs... foul/fishy smell, greenish, yellowish or mixed with blood, pus is present, thicker or heavier than usual, white and clumpy. if these symptoms persist, consult your doctor.

try over the counter product like replens. it helps balance the ph of the vagina which reduces the acidity and clears this type of problem. since i have tried this product and it worked for me, i would highly recommend this.


suzette - September 15

age plays a big role, and at menopause, estrogen levels fall and discharge is reduced. however, a healthy vagina cleans itself naturally and vaginal discharge is part of this cleansing process.

a small amount of discharge is normal unless it is accompanied by odor or yellowish in color. how would you describe your discharge by the way? please be more specific. .

at first it was white, creamy no itch and no odor at all. just lately i noticed that it changes its color into something yellowish, itchy and a bit, just a little bit smelly. is this infection?

no doubt, it's an infection. it could be yeast. if it's not severe or if it just started, you can try home remedies. otherwise, go to the clinic.

drink at least two glasses of buttermilk a day. make curds a part of the daily diet in take reduces the probability of yeast infection.

try boric acid. it is a chemical substance with mild antiseptic and antifungal properties. these are available from some compounding pharmacies.


vida - September 23

yeast infection is also more common after menopause due to declining estrogen levels, which thin the vaginal walls. don't worry much, it's treatable.


diane - September 25

antifungal vaginal medications are available in creams, tablets, or suppositories. but avoid using over the counter without your doctors advice.

yogurt is the is a common home remedy that even doctors recommend it. it contains Lactobacillus acidophilus, a bacterium that also happens to be found in healthy vaginas which kills yeast by producing hydrogen peroxide.

i agree with lyka.
yogurt works wonder!

most women will experience at least one yeast infection during their lifetime. mostly women who are diabetic may be more susceptible to yeast infections.


jackie - September 29

i am diabeic, so does it mean i'm prone to yeast infection? what are some preventive measure for this?


amanda - October 16

if you're a diabetic person, this infection may tend to happen to you again from time to time. so make sure to keep your vagina extremely clean and let it dry before you put on underwear.
