Need to be examined: Sometimes ovulation can produce a mucus discharge, but it should be clear. Old, leftover menstrual blood could mix with white discharge and look yellow. But malodorous yellow discharge doesn't sound normal, and i'd guess you have an infection of some kind, but you'd need to see a doctor to be sure. If no fever or pain, it can wait until the office opens. ...Read more

Normal: Color of mucous is white, green, grey, yellow, white, clear. Color changes based on level of hydration and types of foods eaten. Rarely a good indicator of infection.

Likely scant blood: One of the common side effects of Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is irregular periods, especially in the first 3 months. Usually the longer a woman uses it the lighter and less frequent her periods are. So to have a long period is not unusual. The light orange yellow discharge is likely to be scant blood mixed with normal vaginal discharge. If a woman has itching or irritation then it's likely vag infection. ...Read more

Don’t guess.: Take a test.  they are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  if you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I'm on the Depo-Provera shot and I have a funny color discharge and itchy what do it mean?

Yeast or STI: Spotting on Depo-Provera may cause a funny color discharge but unlikely itchy. Itchy and discharge may be a yeast infection or a sexually transmitted infection. If condoms have been used consistently you can try an over-the-counter yeast vaginitis kit (with applicator or tablets). However, if there is no improvement I suggest getting checked for a sexually transmitted disease. ...Read more

I got the Depo-Provera shot about 3 weeks ago, started having brown discharge 3 days ago. What's going on?

Expected: Depo is basically a shot of one of the two hormones, progesterone, that regulates your menstrual cycle. While Depo-Provera can protect you against pregnancy, without the balancing hormone estrogen, you may notice some unscheduled spotting. Doesn't increase risk of pregnancy nor usually need treatment. Estrogen treatment may help, if bothersome. Good luck. ...Read more

I was on the Depo-Provera shot I stopped taken it about 3 months ago I am two months late on my periodand now I'm having brown discharge what could that mean?

A number of things: It can take 6 months after stopping a Depo-Provera shot before periods return to "normal" assuming they were 'normal' to begin with. You could have skipped a cycle, in theory you could have had an early pregnancy and early misscarriage. Many early miscarriages are perceived by women as a late or funny period. But you could have just had a funny period this cycle as well. Be healthy, wait and watch. ...Read more

What do it mean when you on the Depo-Provera shot and you have a funny color discharge?

Nothing, usually: It may just be a hormonal change related to the depo. As long as this is not a discharge that is itchy, malodorous, nor copious; it is probably just from the change your body is sensing from the different hormone in the depo. Your system should adjust to the new hormone, and calm down with no discharge in the near future. ...Read more

It gets better: Irregular bleeding is the number one annoying side effect from Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone). Thankfully it usually gets better as time goes by.
