You need to go: to healthcare provider to get checked for vaginal infection, such as bacterial vaginosis, or trichomonas, or yeast infection. On Depo if it's within treatment guidelines you should not be pregnant. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

Usually: Most episodes of true ear discharge (pus or blood) represent an infection of the middle ear, commonly referred to as an ear infection. The discharge is coming from either a ruptured ear drum or a surgically placed ear tube. Ear discharge may also represent what is commonly called a "swimmer's ear, " or inflammation of the ear canal, which can be caused by cotton swabs, water or a foreign object.

Cyst: Swelling at the opening of the vagina can be a Bartholin's gland cyst. When the duct becomes blocked, fluid accumulates. They can frequently become infected and cause an abscess with tenderness. Treatment usually involves opening the cyst to allow drainage and can be performed in the office with local anesthetic. Consult your physician for further evaluation.

OTC remedies: You can use over-the-counter remedies if the symptoms are really bad. Keep in mind though that the hormone changes of pregnancy cause an overgrowth of yeast that is not dangerous and does not need to be treated unless it is causing severe symptoms.
