Normal discharge after menstruation

Before we talk about what should be a normal release, it is worth remembering what they are made. In the female genital organs, particularly in the vagina, there is always a certain microflora. Basically, it is represented by lactic acid bacteria (bacillus Doderlein), white blood cells and some other microorganisms. Needless vagina, cervix and uterus have certain glands, which in a given amount of secrete mucus (a core component cables). To join this mucus cells exfoliated vaginal epithelium and the waste products of the microflora.

Normal discharge after menstruation slimy, transparent, watery and have an unpleasant odor. After menstrual bleeding to the seventh-eighth day of the cycle on a daily basis for around 0, 06-0, 08 grams of mucus. The normal selection will cause no trouble (no burning or itching).

 Diagnosis thrush
 When a woman has symptoms of infection in the vagina or thrush requires complex laboratory and instrumental studies. Diagnosing yeast infection should be aimed at establishing a possible causative agent. Based on these results we can finally make a diagnosis and prescribe an appropriate course of antifungal therapy. Without laboratory confirmation of the presence of yeast should not start treatment.

Microbiological diagnostic methods

A study of vaginal discharge using smear microscopy is a simple and affordable diagnostic methods. Fencing material for the research carried out during the inspection on the gynecological chair woman Gynaecological chair: Take a closer look  Gynaecological chair: Take a closer look
 . There are two methods of research - in the native and stained preparations. Microscopic examination makes it possible to determine the following:

  • confirms the presence or absence not only of the fungus and its spores and mycelium
  • It determines the presence of microorganisms that can cause mixed or mix-infection, and their accessory sets (obligate anaerobic microorganisms or other)

The greatest value in diagnostic terms given to cultural studies. It certainly should be done in cases of chronic recurrent and complicated forms of the disease. The method has more features:

  • the establishment of genera and species affiliation fungal flora
  • susceptibility to various antifungal agents
  • detecting the presence of concomitant bacterial flora

If the fungal infection of the vagina in the form of proceeds kandidonositelstvo, the culture diagnosis is mandatory. It will help to prevent not only the development of clinically significant forms of yeast, and various complications that are associated with fungal infection Fungal infection: to prevent and defeat  Fungal infection: to prevent and defeat
 . According to the current guidelines of Cultures study should also be given to pregnant women.

 . This method can not be considered specific, it does not allow itself to establish a causal factor (ie pathogen) disease. For colposcopic picture for thrush is characterized by changes in epithelium characteristic of the inflammatory process. Plot defeat looks like a plot with a fuzzy, blurry edges, the size of which depends on the degree of activity and the clinical course of the disease. Colposcopy can be called additional informative diagnostic method, which allows you to identify the concomitant inflammation of the vagina, such as vaginitis, asymptomatic.

In parallel to all laboratory and instrumental research physician assesses whether the patient has clinical symptoms. Only on the basis of this integrated approach can reliably make a diagnosis and prescribe treatment of thrush.
