Thank you. Can postinor2 affect ovulation in the month after it was taken by increasing discharge?

Hi Anon

No, Postinor will not affect the next month's ovulation, it leaves your system within a week.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

All women experience some vaginal discharge. It’s normal.

Vaginal and cervical glands produce small amounts of fluid that flows from the vagina taking out old cells. Normal discharge cleans and moistens the vagina, and helps prevent and fight infections. The amount of discharge is different for everyone. Some women have a little now and then. Others have it every day.

Normal vaginal discharge varies in texture and color. It can be somewhat thin, sticky and elastic or thick and gooey. It should be clear, white or off-white in color and not smell bad. It's important to keep an eye out for any changes. Changes in vaginal discharge’s color or smell may, or may not, be a sign of a vaginal infection.

Anything that interferes with the vagina’s normal environment can alter discharge. Things like menstrual cycles, emotional stress, pregnancy, medications, sexual excitement, breastfeeding, ovulation and diet can change the color or texture of vaginal discharge. Douches, feminine hygiene products, perfumed or deodorant soaps or diabetes can also lead to vaginal infections.

If the amount, color and/or consistency of discharge changes, it may indicate a vaginal infection. It may become green, yellow, or gray; look foamy or like cottage cheese and have a bad odor. Any itching, swelling, redness or the presence of blood when it’s not during a period, could mean an infection.

Since you are also having some pain with this discharge I think it's a good idea to see a doctor for a check up.
