Question
Hello thr..
I have been married 3yrs now n trying to conceive since 2yrs..
Was on clomid three to four times..
Everytime my ovulation study goes fine have a good size egg n gets released also..
A few months back I had a miscarriage in just 15 days I realised I was pregnant..
I went to the doc fr scanning n he said there was a brown discharge..
I miscarried at home then had a d&c..
Now a week ago my doc suggested me to take endothik tablets I.e sildenafil citrate & estradiol valerate tablets vaginally  n said that may be I was because of thin lining..
I had arnd 7-8 mm
Since I've taken the medicine I'm not able to enjoy intercourse with my husband n also im not able to feel anything..
I'm getting really frustrated n always there is roughness n dryness inside me..
I think the medicine has created a wall inside me n always there is a white discharge of medicine on my husbands private part..
Please help me n guide me whether I should stop taking this medicine??
Is it harming my vagina ??
I wana concieve soon

Answer
Hello Gauri from India,

What you describe with your vagina is not a known side effect of the medication.  Estradiol should increase the mucous output and thereby increase lubrication.  Therefore, I highly recommend that you go see a gynecologist and have an examination done.

Good Luck,
