Vaginitis : This could be a simple bacterial vaginosis or a cervicitis or even a fallopian tube cancer. Hydrops tuba profluens is a sign of tubal cancer which is a watery foul smelling vaginal discharge. Bottom line you need to be evaluated by your dr and do not dismiss the condition.

A 38-year-old member asked:

Should I be concerned if I have green vaginal discharge?

Yes: Women know their bodies and might be familiar with many types of vaginal discharge. However, an unusual one or a new one should be evaluated by a professional. If yellowish green, it could be trichomonas, which an obgyn provider should diagnose and treat. If the woman is pregnant and the discharge is darker green, it could be meconium-stained amniotic fluid, and that could become an OB emergency.

Yes: Foul smelling discharge needs to be evaluated. The most common cause is a nonsexually transmitted overgrowth of bacteria called bacterial vaginosis. Testing for other sexually transmitted disease may need to be done as well.

Yes: The only requirement to achieve pregnancy is for sperm to reach the ovulated egg. Genital contact can still lead to pregnancy even in the absence of penetration if ejaculation occurs near the vaginal opening.

Always a possibility: Pregnancy is always a possibility in a woman in her fertile years. Simple urine pregnancy tests are available at any drugstore. A woman can also go to a primary care doctor or an ob-gyn doctor for testing. If the test is positive, the woman needs to set up routine appointments with the doctor that will be providing her prenatal care. If the test is negative, the doctor can look for other problems.
