I have been having a problem and I would like some advise. I stopped taking contraceptive a year ago because my vagina sweat profusely. I thought it was a side-effect from the contraceptive but it prolongs. Lately when I sweat;my vagina has a sweaty odor,my underwear and leggings get really damp. I find this extremely embarrassing. As a result of this, I shower and change my underwear 3 times a day. However,I am worried. I do not have a vaginal infection and I haven't been sexually active for 2 years now. I am wondering if there is a way to stop the sweating?
As embarrassing as it may be, consult your doctor. I have the same problem, and I am set to see my doctor for it next month. Mine may be because I am overweight, not sure what your situation may be. But doctors hear these things every day, and sometimes its as simple as changing one thing. Good Luck and Take Care!
The increased discharge could be due to physiological reasons like rise of hormone level (oestrogen) which is seen- during puberty, menstrual cycle, sexual excitement, pregnancy etc. It could be also seen in poor personal hygiene, non-infective cervical lesions, uterine prolapse, chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, use of contraceptive pills, onset of vaginal infection or sexually transmitted disease etc. You should consult a gynecologist for internal examination and investigation to know the exact cause of it.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
