Should I visit a gynecology clinic near me in Katy for vaginal discharge?

Vaginal discharge is a common concern. Women of all ages may experience this aggravation, which can vary from one month to the next in concert with the menstrual cycle.

When an egg is released during ovulation, the vaginal area receives an influx of mucous, up to thirty times more than normal. The additional discharge may require that a panty liner be worn at all times. The discharge with ovulation is not indicative of a problem. It may, however, make you wonder "should I visit a gynecology clinic near me?"

In the Katy office of Dr. Taryll Jenkins, we offer friendly consultation regarding vaginal discharge and other concerns, as well as personalized care to promote health and wellness. Vaginal discharge may occur for several reasons:
  • Ovulation may cause stretchy, clear discharge.
  • Exercise or other physical exertion may precede clear, watery discharge at certain times in the menstrual cycle.
  • Hormonal fluctuations at the beginning and end of the monthly cycle may bring thick, white discharge. If discharge is accompanied by itching, the underlying cause may be excessive yeast, which can be treated with appropriate medication.
  • Brown discharge may indicate the expulsion of "old" blood after menstruation. This type of discharge may also occur mid-cycle or in early pregnancy when menstruation would normally occur.
  • Spotting instead of expected menstruation could indicate pregnancy and testing should be sought.
If pelvic pain, itching or a bad odor develops, even without discharge, schedule a visit with your gynecologist. These symptoms could indicate infection or another health concern that may be quickly treated with appropriate medical care. Dr. Taryll Jenkins performs testing to rule out health concerns such as sexually transmitted disease, cervical or vaginal cancer, pelvic inflammatory disease, and other conditions. With early detection and treatment, most vaginal conditions can be resolved right away.
