Needs testing: Vaginal discharge requires an examination to determine the cause and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause and often has a vaginal odor. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. Testing is important to determine the treatment and keep you and your partner safe.

Depends: On how and why this Progesterone cream is being used. See the prescribing doctor. Sometimes "yellow" discharge is actually light bleeding. Many "progesterone" creams that are not fda regulated have estrogen in them, which could give you some abnormal bleeding.
