This is my first post on this forum, so if this the wrong place to post this, I'd appreciate the moderator(s) moving this to the right one.
Now, onto my question...
My wife is 42 and is going through medical menopause (she's had a full hysterectomy 2 years ago). There's some white discharge coming out of her vagina that's cottage cheese like in texture. It's not a yeast infection as there is no pain or itching accompanying it. The smell and taste are normal.
Some details: She's on Premerin 1.25 2x a day, still has hot flashes and nightsweats. She was advised to take some Black Cohosh last month and it made her sick to her stomach (and she's since stopped). The discharge started roughly after she started taking the Black Cohosh, by the way.
A trip to her gynecologist would be the best way to answer your question. He/she can diagnose and treat if necessary. In the meantime here is a link to our companion site with many articles and information that may be of help to your wife.It is a menopause site. www.redhotmamas.org
Women not only experience vaginal discharge during and after menopause, but throughout their lives and it’s a normal part of being a woman. It is simply part and parcel of the menstrual cycle and a side product of being of reproductive age. However, if vaginal discharge during and after menopause becomes irregular or non-existent many women begin to feel like they are losing some of their femininity along with their fertility. Every woman is different and due to this, women can suffer from a range of different vaginal discharge during and after menopause. Most women will find that they experience a clear or white discharge during their normal reproductive life and this is considered healthy.
