Not yeast: Most women think that any vaginal discharge is a yeast infection, but this is absolutely not true. If the aspiration was successful, hormone levels begin to drop and the uterine lining begins to destabilize (like when you begin to have menstrual bleeding) and shed. These hormonal changes also change the ph and bacterial composition of the vagina causing discharge. Usually not yeast.
