What is the normal vaginal discharge color supposed to be? Because mine has always been a creamy yellow I can't tell sometimes if there is a green color in it or if its just a strong cream yellow..

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...

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. Good luck! Read more...
