Cause of Metallic Odor in Vagina and Taste in Mouth

Her use of birth control has led to vaginal dryness, bleeding, metallic-smelling vaginal discharge, yeast infection and metallic taste in the mouth.

Case #: 


After taking birth control pill for a while, my sex life is not the same anymore. My sex life was great, but now I struggled with low libido and no lubrication. I also have had breakthrough bleeding and a yeast infection. But now even worse, I have a metallic taste in my mouth as well as metallic smelling vaginal discharge. I think my liver has been ruined.


Yes, birth control may be the cause of all your symptoms. Birth control emulates a pregnancy state by flooding the brain with excessive progesterone and/or estrogen, so that your brain will think you are pregnant and then shut down your ovarian function. This results in excessive progesterone or estrogen in the uterus and cervix. When the liver fails to detoxify the excessive hormones and to fully support the synthesis of the neurotransmitters dopamine, acetylcholine and serotonin, you may suffer the buildup of these metabolite toxins and secretion of these metabolite toxins might produce the metallic odor.
If there is excessive progesterone in the bloodstream, the vagina becomes too dry, numb, discharges very heavily, or develops a yeast infection.  It may also lead to intercourse pains, due to a lack of the anti-inflammatory hormone prostaglandin E-1 and excessive amounts of the inflammatory hormone prostaglandin E-2.
The artificial hormones Progestin and Conjugated Estrogen can cause spotting from the uterine lining.  When the spotting is very small, it will stay inside the vagina and mix with cervical mucus.  When the spotting blood is oxidized, the resulting vaginal discharge becomes dark black or brown, giving you the bad metallic odor.
Try Vaginal Relief & Detoxification Formula to boost liver function for detoxification of the uterus, cervix and vagina and boost neuro-immunity to prevent yeast outbreak. Once your liver function has improved, the detoxification process will restore naturally like before and metallic odor will start fade away. Once your hormone are returned to balance and normal production, libido will return too. Also supplement with lactobacillus cultures, a type of good bacteria that's common in your vagina.  Combined solutions provide a fast relief to break away from your vicious cycle of chronic infection.
