Common Causes of Yellowish Bleeding
The yellowish discharge with foul smell is not normal and may be trichomoniasis, a sexually transmitted disease that in women can still be accompanied by pain during intimate contact and burning when urinating.
The diagnosis of the disease can be made by the gynecologist by pap smear or by observation of the vaginal secretion. Soon after the identification of the disease, it is important to start treatment that can be done with medicines like Metronidazole or Secnidazole, because trichomoniasis increases the risk of other infections, including AIDS.
Usually, trichomoniasis is the main cause of yellow or yellow discharge, but gonorrhea or chlamydia, other sexually transmitted diseases, can also cause this type of discharge. Other symptoms of gonorrhea and chlamydia include pain when urinating and pain during intimate contact and treatment can be done with antibiotics.
The yellowish discharge in the man can also be trichomoniasis, gonorrhea or chlamydia and although not usually accompanied by other symptoms, the man can also experience pain when urinating and pain and swelling in the testicles.
The yellowish discharge without odor is normal, especially if the woman is of childbearing age, and happens because the cervical glands release a transparent mucus in contact with air can purchase a yellowish color. This yellowish discharge without smell may be more frequent before menstruation.
Yellowing of pregnancy
The yellowish discharge in pregnancy can be caused by trichomoniasis, which can lead to premature delivery or a low birth weight newborn.
Therefore, it is important that the pregnant woman perform the treatment, which can be done with the use of Metronidazole or Tinidazole, under the guidance of the obstetrician who accompanies the pregnancy.
Treatment for yellowing discharge
Treatment for yellow-green discharge with foul-smelling odor caused by trichomoniasis in both men and women can be done with the use of antibiotic and antiparasitic drugs such as Metronidazole, Secnidazole or Tinidazole.
Treatment for yellowing of gonorrhea or chlamydia can be done with antibiotics such as Ceftriaxone, Azithromycin, or Ciprofloxacin.
The partner should also do the treatment, even if it does not show symptoms, to prevent the individual from being contaminated again. The treatment of yellowing of the woman should be indicated by the gynecologist and in the man by the urologist.
During treatment, it is recommended:
Use a condom to avoid contaminating the partner.
Avoid making vaginal douches because the showers remove the bacterial layer of the intimate region responsible for protecting that region from infections.
Avoid using perfumes or intimate hygiene sprays as they alter the vaginal pH.
Wear cotton underwear, because cotton does not cause irritation.
Avoid wearing tight pants or shorts, preferring to use salts or dresses to allow the area to air.
Another tip for the treatment of yellow discharge is to avoid internal absorbents, preferring the external ones.
