Infection? Trich?: Colored vaginal discharge usually indicates infection. You don't mention trichomonas, which might be possible. Trich has been almost eliminated in urban Australia, so I would expect a test to be negative. Still, it should be checked by PCR test. Consider consultation at the Melbourne Sexual Health Centre. Australia's SHCs are the world's best such clinics, and MSHC is the best of the best.

Blood pigment?: None of these medications will give you a green discharge per se. Lovenox (enoxaparin) and aspirin make it easier for you to have bleeding. Sometimes small amounts of blood will turn your cervical mucus green as green pigments are a component of hemoglobin in blood. Best wishes!

I've been treated several times over the past 6 months for green vaginal discharge. Why does it continue? What is the cause of it?

Menopause changes: Sometimes when a vaginal discharge persists, it could be that the vaginal tissue is going through a process called atrophy which means that it is no longer as nourished as it once was with estrogen. It is a hormonal change. Just be sure that you have had a culture and vaginal exam to ensure that there are no other causes. 42 is a little young to have the hormonal issue, but it can happen.

Doctor can evaluate: A primary care doctor can evaluate to see if there is an overgrowth of unfriendly bacteria or too much yeast. An odor is often due to those causes, and may be associated with things that alter the ph (acidity) and change the natural environment inside the vagina (such as having sex and getting semen in there).

Yellow/green vaginal discharge. No strong odor. Occasional cloudy light yellow urine. Symptoms caused by same culprit?

Not likely: Vaginal infections are independent of urinary tract infections. The cloudy urine can be caused by contamination from vaginal discharge or be due to sedimentary chrystals in the urine. Your gynecologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you as it appears that you have a vaginal infection.

Should I be concerned if I have green vaginal discharge?

Should I be concerned if I have green vaginal discharge?

Yes: Women know their bodies and might be familiar with many types of vaginal discharge. However, an unusual one or a new one should be evaluated by a professional. If yellowish green, it could be trichomonas, which an obgyn provider should diagnose and treat. If the woman is pregnant and the discharge is darker green, it could be meconium-stained amniotic fluid, and that could become an OB emergency.
