Hi there....I have had abnormal smelly vaginal discharge since the age of 13/14.. I started puberty at 11. I am 29 and still have the problem. I have never had sex because of this problem and because of weight issues. I have had countless swabs taken and everything comes back negative for thrush or BV..I know it is not an STI...At first it was greyish and smelt awful,like fish but over the years has became yellowish and smells like ammonia and slightly fishy. I have had to wear pantyliner's,3 a day,even in bed after showering but am now on 5-6 a day because it is so much worse.Even after showering I stink,if I open my legs,clothed or not it stinks.It is also noticeable through my clothes so I have to change undies and trousers every few hours. I have had this more of my life then not so really don't know what is normal except for the info I've found online...clear or white with no odour..Mine can be clear,heavy and white and sometimes a slight yellow/green stringy like discharge but then is yellow on my panyliner's. I also get a lot of white stuff around my vulva/clit area which I presume is maybe just where its building up during the day??.
.I have PCOS so haven't had regular peroids either.. My doctor in January told me that this discharge is caused by my "excessive" washing...All I do in the morning is use a flannel and warm water to wipe the vulva area BUT I only started doing this because of the smell so it didn't cause it,then she blamed it on my weight because I have large thighs/mons pubis etc because I was 25st when I plucked up the courage to go back after about an 8yr gap of not going back to the doctors..I had a Gastric Bypass in February and have lost 7.5st plus the 5st I lost before so am now 12.7ish at present...a lot smaller than I was at 13/14 so the weight has noting to do with it in my opinion...of course now my Mons pubis is huge and loose and the skin/fat on my thighs is huge and loose so that I suppose no air still gets down below.....what I wanted to know was if anyone else has this whether you are a larger lady or not...I feel I am never going to be able to have a physical relationship though I know loads of large ladies have sex lives so why don't they have the problem.I am so desperate for children(If I could now conceive with the weight loss...though I need a guy for this obviously)...my doctor is useless as far as I am concerned and am wondering if I should,or rather can I demand to see a gynecologist??...I'm sorry for so much information but I am by no means a prude and nothing phases me so I hope I have not offended anyone....thank you p.s I am now having regular periods,not always the same time each month but each month none the less....yippie
