Is Menopause Discharge Harmful?

It may have several appearances.
Menopause discharge is not only puzzling but it's erratic as well, rather like your hormones are at the moment which are the culprits for this happening.
Life is changing, your body is changing and with that there comes a huge number of both physical and psychological changes too, one of these changes is menopause discharge.
Hormone imbalances are the reason for this happening.
When the main estrogen and progesterone hormones fluctuate in your body this can cause physical symptoms.
Just because you're still experiencing periods doesn't necessarily mean that you're ovaries are still releasing eggs, they could purely be false periods.
One form of infertility can be attributed to a non menopausal woman being blighted with false periods.
As estrogen levels fall so does the secretion levels in the vagina, this can lead to dryness, inflammation and a thinning of the vagina walls, we call this atrophic vaginitis.
Menopause discharge could be happening as a result of vaginal atrophy.
The discharge tends to be at it's greatest in the phase prior to the full menopause when periods tend to be "false" and lack frequency.
Menopause discharge should be clear/white and odorless, discharge that has a dark appearance, smells, itches or burns along with pain in the lower abdomen, needs to be checked out.
When a yeast infection is present it can give similar symptoms.
Sexually transmitted diseases and non harmful allergies can share the same characteristic symptoms of a yeast infection, you'll notice with them all that there is an unmistakeable change in your discharge which becomes clogged, lumpy and extremely "fishy" in it's smell.
Be on the safe side and get things looked over by a medical consultant.
Some think that there's a psychosomatic reason stemming from the effect the hormones imbalances have on your mood that triggers the discharge.
Your hormones are going off at tangents right now! The dark moods that seem to be pulling at you tend to nourish other negative feelings like stress, anxiety and extreme fatigue.
Menopause discharge could just be the result of your body misinterpreting your feelings.
There's no evidence to support this line of thought and cases of it happening are very isolated.
Your body needs to stay strong and in tip top condition to give it the best chance at resistance.
Natural methods of treatment are becoming more and more recognised as they tend not to carry unpleasant side effects.
If, after your discussions he/she is happy that there isn't any underlying conditions and it is just menopause discharge, then it can sometimes be better to leave intrusive treatments alone and find gentler alternatives without any side effects.
