Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

Are you having any other symptoms such as pain, itching, irritation, odor?

Customer:

No

Dr Owen :

so no other symptoms other than this discharge?

Customer:

No but sticking to pants is not pleasant

Dr Owen :

okay

Dr Owen :

Have you used any medications, creams for this?

Dr Owen :

Also, what other medications, pills, etc are you taking?

Customer:

I have not tried anything at all. The only pill I take is for hypercholaestramia

Dr Owen :

okay

Dr Owen :

Well you probably have a pH imbalance or this is due to menopause secondary to Atrophy of the vagina and hence this can cause this discharge

Dr Owen :

So I would suggest trying a Probiotic that contains Lactobaccillis acidophilus, plus also trying an Estrogen suppository in the vagina such as Vagifem

Dr Owen :

Both of these products together will help your situation

Customer:

Really!! Do I have to put up with this? I had my last period 20 years ago!

Dr Owen :

You do not have to put up with this

Dr Owen :

try what I have suggest - it will work

Customer:

Sorry I answered before you had finished!!

Dr Owen :

okay

Dr Owen :

I wish you well

I did NOT rate you as poor - I was tired and possibly didn't read the screen well.


You were patient and helpful and I can ask for no more and your comments were extremely helpful.


I work 5 days a week leaving at 06.30 and manage a Nursoing home that is very demanding of energy - I am keeping the family on my income and regret that I cannot give you more- you and I are worth more ! I trained in Edinburgh Royal and was a prize winner and I know my stuff (except about myself) I earn £36.ooo after 44 years of experience!
