See doctor: Repeat question; see my previous reply. Even if not at risk for STD, such discharge still needs professional evaluation. Maybe not serious, but you shouldn't take the chance. Some STDs can cause symtpoms after several months or even years; even if not recently sexually active, an STD may be possible, especially if you were not tested for STDs since your last sexual contact.
