Hello. : Hello. Normal vaginal secretions are clear to white / creamy. The viscosity can change depending on when you ovulate, become pregnant etc. White discharge is leukorrhea which is made up of things like dead cells, dead white cells and normal secretions. It can turn slightly yellow when it dries in your underwear. Green or dark yellow, clumpy or malodorous discharge may be abnormal. If that were the case, would get it checked - especially if there is redness, swelling, itching or pain. Take care. ...Read more

My stool has looked deep green and a little furry. Is that normal / abnormal or what? Does it mean that something is wrong? That is all for now.

My stool has looked deep green and a little furry.  Is that normal / abnormal or what?  Does it mean that something is wrong? That is all for now.

Let me explain: Stool comes in a range of colors. Only rarely does stool color indicate a potentially serious intestinal condition. Food may be moving through the large intestine too quickly, such as due to diarrhea. As a result, bile doesn't have time to break down completely. Green leafy vegetables, green food coloring, such as in flavored drink mixes or ice pops, iron supplements. ...Read more

I have been urinating a goldish color and it has an unpleasant smell. I have also been dieting can.The dieting be the cause for the color and smell?

YES: Dark urine usually means dehydration and concentration of the urine. Some diets result in "spilling ketones" in the urine which can cause dehydration. I see that frequently in "high protein high fat diets". The solution is simple, avoid harsh starvation diets and drink a lot of water while you are dieting. There are 0 calories in wtaer and it fills up your stomach and makes you less hungry. ...Read more
