My 8 year old daughter has been losing fluid from her vagina daily for over a year. It started off blood stained.She has "explosions" from her vagina up to 10 times a day. Doctors have performed a vaginoscopy, colonoscopy,laparoscopy,numerous MRI's and ultrasounds and a hormone level test and have come up blank. She is now losing just clear water like fluid at a rate of approximately 2 cups an "episode". She has beend unable to attend school because of this and is quite scared (as we all are). Other symptoms are tiredness,sore legs,weight gain,sore/crampy vagina when having an episode,aching tummy. Has anyone seen these symptoms before? PLEASE HELP!

I dont' have any answers, but wanted to say I'm sorry to hear of your daughter's health problems. As someone who has been searching for answers herself, I would suggest seeing a good Naturopath. You stated that they took her hormone levels, but what did the tests reveal and what hormone levels were tested? Was it female hormones, thyroid, or what? Did you see the results...the numbers? Just allowing the doctors to tell you that everything is within "normal" limits is not enough. You have to SEE the numbers and where she falls in the range... Since you are searching for answers I would start with getting copies of ALL of her tests so that YOU have them on file! Have you had her tested in terms of vitamins and minerals...a naturopath can do that...or a nutritionist? What is her diet like? Is she eating processed foods or whole foods? There could be some allergy or vitamin/mineral deficiency causing all of this but it takes a patient physician do do so. While you are waiting to find one, you could change her diet and see how she responds...keeping a diary for yourself and the next physician. Keep a diary of when she has these episodes and what she had to eat prior to them....time of day, etc. By doing this, you can get a better picture of what is happening to her! What type of products are you using on her? Are you using products that contrain "estrogenic" compounds such as PARABENS or other toxic compounds on her. They are in lotions, hair shampooes, conditioners, etc. Stop using those and start using ORGANIC products and see how she responds to that and if you see a difference. Unfortunately, most people don't have MAJOR reactions, but she could be one who is VERY SENSITIVE... You can "google" for other toxins that are in these products. Jason products are very good and you can make products at home to use for her... I know changing her diet can be difficult, but start by giving her only whole foods....just meat and veggies....no additives except for spices... Note how she responds to the changes, if things get worse or better! Then the next week add in something that she likes, one thing and see how she responds to that, etc... I know this may take some time, but it sounds like things are very chaotic right now and starting with diet and things that you can control may give you better insight into the underlying probem...
