Question: Wellbutrin XL & Vaginal Discharge

 wharris08 - Wed Oct 26, 2005 11:48 am

Recently (about three months ago), I began a regimen of 150mg of Wellbutrin XL per day. I have had sexual intercourse, and suspected my abnormal discharge could have been because of an STD. However, I do not experience any pain, burning, itching or irritation. Performing a kegel exercise, I often notice about a teaspoon of white discharge that doesn't necessarily have a foul odor. There is no redness or irritation signs that I am aware of. There are small, goosebump size bumps near the entrance of my vagina, but I thought those were nerve endings, etc. Is there an STD that might be the cause of the increased white discharge or could it be a symptom of the Wellbutrin XL antidepressant? Thanks!

User avatar You should be seen by a doctor if you are experiencing more than usual/different from usual discharge, whether there is an odor or not. It is not a side effect of Wellbutrin, and if you are at risk for STD you need to get it diagnosed quickly and inform the party that you got it from as well, so the spread doesn't continue.
