TOO SHY TO DISCUSS...
I have very big problem sir. After my menstruation, I use to see black fluid coming out, sometimes white thick fluid, and I am not married as I’m just 17 years old, at first I thought it was all part of maturity, but I now realize that it’s not and I am feeling shy to tell to my mum and sister. I can only discuss this with you because I’m not face to face with you. Please what do you suggest? Nafisa, Kano First let me encourage all young people especially teenagers to feel free to relate any issue of their sexuality with their mothers also. And it is a challenge to our mothers, there must be something missing when daughters cannot relate their problems with their mothers. Parents need to create time for their children. Basic health education and sexuality should be taught even at home.
Parents especially mothers should stress to their wards how to handle themselves when it comes to issues concerning menstruation and vaginal discharge. Any discharge from vaginal should be notified to the parents.
Concerning your complaints, first you still have to inform your mother so that she can take you to see your family physician. The doctor need to examine you and take swab for test.
After the test the antibiotics would be given. Untreated and poorly treated discharge can affect fertility in the future.
