Vaginal Discharge

Posted , 3 users are following.

Help-I have had two hysteroscopys and one CT scan to ascertain what is

causing the brown vaginal discharge which I have been experiencing since

January 2015 - the last hysteroscopy said it was due to atrophic vaginitas

and prescribed vagifem which I have been using for the last three weeks

but still have the discharge saw my doctor this morning who is mystified but

said to continue using vagifem and she will see me in three weeks when course is finished - I thought it may be caused by a prolapse but doctors said not - has anyone else experience this

      Hi sheila 

      oh yours is bladder then, mines the uterus ..

      i think this must be yours below .. Some brief info 

      Anterior prolapse, also known as a cystocele (SIS-toe-seel), occurs when the supportive tissue between a woman's bladder and vaginal wall weakens and stretches, allowing the bladder to bulge into the vagina. Anterior prolapse is also called a prolapsed bladder.

    Dear sheila,

    i have had the same for 3 years. If you get any answers please share. I have gone to 3 gyns and tried many things without reliëf. My Dr. says i am not the only patient with this complaint. This doesn't resolve anything or make me trust in medical care when it comes to womens health!.
