    Smile Pelvic Floor and Leakage

    Hi All I am quite embarrassed about asking this but I do not want to go to the doctor just yet. I gave birth 7 1/2 months ago. I have been doing my pelvic floor exercises and hubby can feel the difference (which is a good thing) BUT I have a lot of discharge to a point where sometime I wipe myself and it is like I have lost my plug as in the amount that is there. The colour is like a whitish, creamy colour and it doesn't smell.. I do not know if this is a sign that my pelvic floor is still weak. Anyone else have this issue?

    I wouldn't have thought that discharge would have anything to do with pelvic floor? I would ask your doctor

    I am pretty sure pelvic floor is only associated with urine leakage not discharge but I'm no doctor. If you don't want to go in maybe just call and ask for advice?

    My understanding is - your pelvic floor holds everything up/in. Yes urine leaks but so does anything in your vagina as it's not closed as tightly as before (does that make sense)?
    I'm 12months post birth, have been seeing a physio for 6 months having electrode stimulation and have improved significantly BUT I still need to wear a liner daily and it's not from urine leakage. I queried it again at a GP appt and turn out I have a prolapse. No amount of pelvic floors can help unfortunately. I'm seeing a urogyno in a few weeks to talk more about options, probably surgery
    I'm done having kids so am happy to fix it now. Def talk to your GP, they see it all the time. Joys of childbirth huh.

    Could it be thrush?
