Probably not UTI: UTI doesn't cause vaginal discharge. Probably you were tested for STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia) and negative wet mount suggests you were checked for vaginal infections bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas, and yeast. But that test messes almost half of trichomonas infections; ask doc about the newly available DNA test for trich, a far better test. Also ask about cervicitis and maybe retest for STDs. ...Read more
