The type and amount of vaginal discharge are one of the indicators of the health of a woman’s genitals. An abnormal one may indicate a fungal or bacterial infection, mechanical injury or a foreign body, and even cancer. Each disturbing change requires consultation with a gynecologist, because it can not only about infections and infections, but also about more serious diseases. A student in Australia who wants to become a registered nurse found out.
A disturbing discovery in her underwear changed her life. “I thought I’d have to wear diapers”
Vivienne Greene immigrated to Australia from South Africa ten years ago. The mother of five children has been regularly examined for years, and the doctors have never detected anything abnormal. Perfect woman. Once, when she went to the toilet, she noticed a clear liquid on her underwear. Greene was trying to become a registered nurse, so she knew immediately something was wrong. In an interview with she reported:
It had no smell or color. It was just a clear fluid that kept flowing out of my vagina and it got worse and worse.
She decided not to underestimate this symptom and went to see a doctor. Initially, a problem with the pelvic floor was diagnosed. So they sent Greene to see a specialist for further tests. During this time, the fluid coming out of her body became increasingly heavy and made it difficult to function normally.
In fact, I almost thought I’d have to start wearing diapers, especially at night. It was really bad. It was embarrassing.
Subsequent examinations and visits finally brought the final diagnosis. “What have I done wrong?”
Vivienne Greene continued to perform and visit specialists. When she went for an ultrasound, the doctors finally found something. It turned out that he had a polyp, which they assessed as a benign lesion. Doctors gave her two options: either insert an IUD or remove it surgically. Greene decided to go under the knife.
Once you’re diagnosed, you can fall into the trap of over-analyzing everything. What have I done wrong? Because there must be something wrong in my head, because there is no cancer in my family, absolutely nothing.
This decision could have saved her life, because after removal, it turned out that the polyp was a cancerous lesion. In September 2022, Greene, then 40, was diagnosed with stage 1B2 cervical cancer. It was soon revealed that the woman had a rare form of cervical cancer that was HPV-negative, which explains why her cervical screening tests never detected it. Fortunately, the cancer did not spread to her lymph nodes, but she had to start treatment at the Icon Cancer Center in Maroochydore as soon as possible.
