My doctor said yellow vaginal discharge is a old discharge. Its normal if it has no smell and no itchiness. Its it true?? I'm so confused. Pls help me

What your doctor: Said is true in general. Red flags for a vaginal infection (as opposed to normal vaginal secretions) include a strong or bad odor, watery discharge, irritation, itching and other uncomfortable symptoms. If you have just a small amount of discharge without a bad odor or itching, then most likely you don't have a vaginal infection. Hope this helps. Dr. Anne. ...Read more

Testing in men sometimes misses chlamydia or gonorrhea, and men usually aren't tested at all for some infections e.g. trichomonas. There are excellent STD clinics in Malaysia and Singapore. Good luck! ...Read more
