A 21-year-old female asked:
Can yeast infections have yellow discharge rather than the cottage cheese like discharge that is most commonly known? Also no itchiness or burning.

Infection? STD?: The main vaginal yeast symptom is itching/irritation. If any discharge (only half the time), it is correct that thick/white ("cottage cheese") is typical. Colored discharge (yellow, greenish, etc) is typical for a bacterial infection. An STD (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas) is a good bet, but of course only if sexually active. In any case, you need to see a doctor about it. Good luck!
