Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

What symptoms do you have in regards ***** *****?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
i have brown/pinkish clumpy discharge with a slight odour of a coppery smell. i have no pain anywhere
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 8 days ago.

Though Bv is a possibility it can be a bacterial infection.

The pink color comes from the slight blood.

I would suggest using a boric acid suppository one every night for a week and if it does not improve then see a doctor for a swab test to rule out bacterial infection.

Take REPHRESH probiotics as well.

there is quite a lot of blood though and i don’t know if that’s because my period came early
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 8 days ago.

There is a possibility of the period being early as it can happen when you have an infection. Monitor for one to two days, if bleeding continues then it is most likely your period.

i am still having brown/slightly green discharge
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 7 days ago.

If it's green then you should get a swab test as it can be trichomoniasis.
