Vaginal Wet Mount
Yeast are seen.: When a woman has symptoms suggestive of a vaginal infection, her physician will take some of the vaginal secretions and look at it under the microscope.

Yellow clumpy vaginal discharge sometimes clear, no odor, no itch, negative for c&s test, wet mount and pap test. What else can cause yellow discharge?
Treat for best guess: Diagnosis of vaginal discharge can be difficult. Yellow color suggests infection. Depending on exact tests done, some infections can be missed, e.g. gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas. Talk to your doctor about being retested. If available, include the new DNA test for trich, much more accurate than wet mount. It may be necessary to treat for the best guess, without proof of diagnosis.
