Female -- Vaginal Discharge/Infections
Sometimes a little green in discharge
Posted on: 08/17/2011
Hi, Okay so I am 28. But you accurately answer questions here, and help people out :) Is the occasional spot of greenish or yellow tinged vaginal discharge normal? Without itching, bad odor or any other symptom at all. Just like normal clear discharge--except tinged with another colour. It might happen once a month, maybe twice. Around one week before my period (this time anyway). It was maybe only this year that i read online and found out that thick, stringy clear discharge was normal at certain times of the month (cuz that was grose) So I am glad I have an answer for that! Thank you for your time. P.S. I work in a pharmacy as a technician and I work with a lot of doctors in my area--I am so not asking them!
No worries if it is a little each month, but if it starts to be continual, or you have not been screened for sexually transmitted infections this year, it might be good to make an appointment with your doctor.
