Dr. Oz discusses the top 3 reasons we go to the obyn and how to prevent visits. Marie, from seat 25, was the assistant of the day!
If you have irritation, itching or painful urination, then you are likely to visit an ObGyn.
1. If you have a very strong smell (sort of fishy) and a discharge that is cloudy looking, this is probably caused by bacteria.
2. A yeast infection looks like “cheesy stuff.” Yeast infections are caused by fungus and the cheesy look comes from the little rods with branches coming off of them called hyphae.
3. Yet another common, but curable, issue is if you have a discharge that looks green.
4. A few home remedies for some of these issues are to take 1000 I.U. Vitamin D Dietary Supplement, Zinc Supplements or by eating real yogurt (or kefir). You should always talk to your doctor first though!
Another great tip from Dr. Oz is to skip nylon synthetic underwear and just wear cotton underwear. Cotton allows your body to breathe. Also, the smartest way to go to bed at night is with no underwear on… our husbands will love this one!
