Get tested: There are several causes of bad smelling vaginal discharge and testing is needed to determine the cause and treatment. The most likely is bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial vaginosis is an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. It causes a watery discharge with a fishy odor. It is not sexually transmitted and your partner does not require treatment. It is treated with antibiotics. ...Read more

Why am I having light pink/orange discharge when I wipe? I am on the depo shot but missed one in may, unprotected sex in July but got another on August. Now spotting on and off with negative pregnancy test but stomach getting big and hard

Why am I having light pink/orange discharge when I wipe? I am on the depo shot but missed one in may, unprotected sex in July but got another on August. Now spotting on and off with negative pregnancy test but stomach getting big and hard

When in doubt: Just check pregnancy test again. And if you are still not bleeding normally and first pregnancy test was negative, check it again in 1 week. But it is not likely that you are pregnant given significant bleeding. However the timing of the unprotected intercourse is worrisome as it occurred right when you were very vulnerable, and the Depo shot in August likely did not help prevent the pregnancy. ...Read more

Hi, I have my normal clear/whiyish discharge. But on top of it was a bright orange/pink discharge. Any ideas?

Menses?: The pink may be from early sign of your period coming. Orange is unusual.

Do not fear doctor: Dear Rebecca960, real source of your sense of embarrassment and scariness is not doctor. You rather fear that reason for your visit may become known to other people.
