White discharge in men and women
In women, healthy( normal) white discharge from the vagina does not irritate the mucous membranes and skin, do not have an unpleasant odor and have a small volume. At the same time, there should be no symptoms of the disease( discomfort, pain, temperature, itching).
White odorless discharge consists of the mucus produced in the glands of the cervix. They prevent the penetration of the infection and contribute to the purification of the genital tract.
Many women begin to experience anxiety, discovering in themselves white discharge on their underpants. It should be noted that their volume may vary depending on the level of hormones, age and sexual activity, but, as a rule, does not exceed four milliliters per day. Spots from them on linen on average do not exceed in diameter of five centimeters.
Usually white discharge has an average consistency consistency. During ovulation and pregnancy, the amount of mucus may increase. When taking oral contraceptives, white discharge is noted in a smaller volume.
Change in the nature of mucus indicates the development of pathology. Unhealthy discharge can have impurities of pus, have an unpleasant, more often, acidic, odor. In addition, the presence of the disease indicates a curdled, foamy or watery consistency. If you find such secretions, you need to contact the doctor immediately.
It should be noted that very many dangerous, severe consequences of gynecological diseases at the initial stages are asymptomatic. However, an indirect clinical manifestation can be only specific secretions.
The use of folk methods, as a rule, is ineffective and expedient only in conjunction with prescribed medicines. It should be noted that the independent elimination of specific discharges with the help of prescriptions of folk medicine is extremely undesirable. This is due to the fact that, mainly, at home, it is quite difficult to accurately diagnose and select the appropriate correct therapeutic measures. The use of "common" recipes can only exacerbate the situation by prolonging the disease. As a rule, the consequence of such self-treatment is the neglected chronic form of the disease, in which there is an apparent relief of symptoms. In fact, they are slightly damped, which causes certain difficulties in the selection of the subsequent treatment by a specialist. Therefore, before resorting to any method of treatment, it is necessary to consult a specialist and find out all contraindications to the use of manipulations.
It should be noted that men also often notice white discharge from the urethra.
As a rule, they indicate the presence of pathologies. So, specific discharge of foamy consistency accompanied by itching may indicate the presence of trichomoniasis urethritis. The candidiasis form of this disease manifests less pronounced symptoms. Nonspecific urethritis, which has developed as a result of infection into the pelvic organs, usually proceeds secretly. Perhaps the patient can not pay attention to its first manifestations: pain when urinating, frequent morning discharge from the urethra. The same form of unclear clinical symptoms is characterized by the chronic form of the disease.
It should be noted that in the absence of timely treatment, urethritis can go to the neglected stage and provoke hemospermia. In this case, the vas deferens and the seminal tubercles are affected. Isolation of sperm occurs with an admixture of blood. If you have these symptoms, you need to see a doctor.
