Question: Orange vaginal discharge

 missymay - Sun Sep 20, 2009 12:49 pm

I have had orange vaginal discharge the past couple of day. Its gel like, sticky, and stretchy, however it is orange. I am wondering what it could be and how serious it could be?

User avatar Hello,
I would not be too alarmed about the color variation, but if you have itching, odor or other symptoms you should be checked for possible infection. I suspect it is just normal variation, perhaps sticky due to ovulation, but it does not sound serious. I would just watch and wait.

Best wishes.
