Tampon to control discharge
Posted on: 03/20/2008
I had a child at 16 and was on the depo shot afterwards. i just got off of it 6 months ago. I am having yellowish brown discharge come from my vagina with a noticeable odor. what could this be? I wear a tampon everyday to hold the smell in. Is that healthy? Could I have an std? If so is it curable?
You may be causing more problems with using the tampon everyday. You should make an appt with your doctor to have an exam to rule out possible infection.
