    Can you work out what you're thinking about the discharge, or any associations your brain is making thats triggering the anxiety?

      but then , it happened than I saw the discharge and find that it's really the reason!

      nothing triggering my Anxiuty in most of the time, but in some case I just first be worry of sleeping and haveing enough time to rest before my baby wake up then end up with really severe Anxiuty attack sad

    How old is the baby? And is it your first baby?

    Are you breastfeeding?

    Was the labour awful? Did you haemorrhage when the afterbirth was coming out?  Have you been having a great many sleepless nights because of the baby?

    I'm a midwife, which is why I'm asking all this. I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. I'm not sure what is causing this to be happening to you. I think you should see your soctor.

    Just for the record, I have never encountered a woman who has had this problem after having a baby, so I'm as puzzled as you are. Please see your doctor. And please let us know how you're doing. We're all here to help. Love Tess

       like that women often have to have a lot of vaginal examinations, which are intrusive and  uncomfortable. And, of course, the baby came OUT of your vagina, so I was just wondering if you haven't had a chance to debrief on your labour. I mean that most women who have anxieties after the baby's born find it very helpful to discuss the labour and your feelings about it with a midwife.

      So is it possible that seeing vaginal discharge reminds you in any way, even subconsciously, of the awful labour.

      My other thought was you mentioning that you had been on anti-depressants before becoming pregnant, so you're already a candidate for post natal depression and anxiety.. Your hormones are still all over the place, even after five months.

      Does having your period make you anxious - because obviously the menstrual flow has to come out of the vagina.

      And why are you getting discharge, anyway? Is there any possibility that you might have contracted a sexually-transmitted disease? Sorry to ask that but it isn't normal to have lots of vaginal discharge.

      Would you like to PM me? If so, please do. love Tess

      Sorry, the beginning of that message didn't print.

      It said:  I can think of two possible scenarios that might be causing this - the first is your description of your labour as hard, painful and awful, and when a labour is like that women have to.....

      etc. Hope that made sense
