Is it normal to have light yellow brown discharge? I have it often and it has some odor to it. Tested neg for STIs. I'm 23, 139lbs. Decent diet.

Infection? BV?: The most common cause of increased vaginal discharge with odor is bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of mostly normal vaginal bacteria. However, BV discharge usually is white or gray; "yellow brown" suggests other infection. Bet to be rechecked for STDs and other infections. Also be sure you are tested for trichomonas by the newer PCR test (the usual test, looking under a microscope, misses many).

Got a blister on my labia after rough sex now have yellow brown discharge?

Trauma: From your description you have a very robust sex and have some trauma. Following that you have discharge. It is likely that the blister may have rupture leaving skin break down which is natural barrier from bacteria or other microbes. It is also possible that you might have sexually transmitted disease. I would recommend to see your doc, have sample of the discharge checked.

Taking oral meds for genital herpes and had yellow/brown discharge today. Haven't had sex for a week now.

See answer: Variety of possibilities which may or may not be significant. Since being treated for genital herpes, very important that you have been or are screened for other STDs, some of which can be associated with vaginal discharge (GC, chlamydia, trichomonas) and often don't show up for at least 5-7 days to weeks after sexual transmission. Also test for non-STD causes of vaginal discharge (yeast, BV, etc)

I have a brown discharge and sometimes it's yellow ' I have abortion 3 weeks ago by catheter aborti0n. Now my discharge today is it normal? Amanda

Normal: This sounds like a normal resolution of your pregnancy after the abortion. As long as you have no fever or pain and the discharge gradually decreases I would not worry. Sometimes one day may be heavier than the day before but the trend should be towards decreasing discharge.

My doctor thinks I had an ovarian cyst rupture I had brown discharge now it's yellow brownish mucus is that normal?

Vaginal discharge: Vaginal discharge requires an examination to determine the cause and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause and often has a vaginal odor. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. Testing is important to determine the treatment and keep you and your partner safe.

What can cause a brighter yellow discharge but very thin in a 50 yr. Old woman? And might be going thru menopause. Itches a little sometimes.

It depends: Are you sexually active? Do you use protection? You need to have regular check ups with your gynocologist. If you have excessive itching it could be a yeast infection. If you have concerns about discharge you need to see your doctor to have this checked. It could also be normal. We all have some discharge sometimes, but make sure you are up to date on your check ups. And use protection.
