No, BV does! Sometimes disturbances to the natural bacteria in your vagina (douching, irregular bleeding, unprotected sex, etc) can allow abnl bacteria like Gardnerella to overgrow and cause a fishy odor. It's not sexually transmitted, but can be treated w/ Metronidazole(Flagyl)/Clindamycin/Boric Acid. See your GYN for a prescription and be examined for other potential causes. Nothing urgent/dangerous though.
Usually not. Watery fishy smelling discharge is classic for bacterial vaginosis. With a bad case of BV you can have some irritation and UTI like symptoms of pain/burning with urination. See a local Family Medicine doctor or OB/GYN and have them examine you and test for BV. This is usually easily treated with a course of antibiotics.
Can UTI cause yellow discharge? I've yellow vaginal discharge on daily basis. Went for c&s test, no pathogen seen. Negative for wet mount.
Probably not UTI. UTI doesn't cause vaginal discharge. Probably you were tested for STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia) and negative wet mount suggests you were checked for vaginal infections bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas, and yeast. But that test messes almost half of trichomonas infections; ask doc about the newly available DNA test for trich, a far better test. Also ask about cervicitis and maybe retest for STDs. Read more...
