Hi. It is like a pink discharge. Very light. It doesn't smell anymore after I got the vaginal capsule. Idk if it's clear because I normally always have a discharge and I've been told it's normal. When it started it was yellow and smelled. Now it doesn't but because I scratched myself with the applicator it was bleeding. I went the day after to the clinic and they said it is just at the entrance and not inside so it's from that. But shouldn't ot have stopped since it happened on Tuesday evening? I am getting quite worried. It was never spots just light pink discharge.
It is ok,when the inflammed mucosa gets damaged ot can give pink discharge. Give it some time.if you dont have any smell or heavy bleeding. It should settle down.
When are you due for the period?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
My period is due on Wednesday 19th.
Ok,you should relax,just give it a is nothing to worry about ant settle down.its basically very little blood that gets mixed with your vaginal secretions.
If it persists you should see the doctor for other possible causes like:
Hormonal imbalance
Persistent infection

Does my partner need to get tested for anything? Can thrush be passed on like that? They did other tests for me and they were all ok.
No thrush is not a sexually transmitted infection.
You should not have sex until you are completely healed.
You should wait for the discharge to be normal again.

Hi there. Can I follow up with you on the same conversation?
sure. How can I help you?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I got my period earlier which am not sure if can affect the healing? I didn't use the cream for a couple of days and today noticed a mild smell again. I still have 3 - 4 days until my period finishes. Is it maybe good to take a canesten oral tablet?
You can use vaginal treatment while on period there is no problem. But if you are not comfortable you can get oral treatment.
Period makes the area moist so its important to continue treatment.
