Question: Green discharge

 88jrfan - Wed Nov 18, 2009 7:26 pm

For about 2-3 weeks now, I have had a thick green discharge with no itching and not a very strong odor. It reminds of of what I blow out of my nose when I have a bad cold. I know that's gross..but that's what it looks like. There is some very mild cramping that just started. I am 43 and have been married for 20 years. I have had a complete hysterectomy 15 years ago. Everything I look at on the internet points towards a STD. I am certain (I hope) that my husband is faithful. Can you help?
Thank you.

User avatar Hello,
Most often something like this is associated with infection so you should see your doctor for accurate diagnosis and treatment. It is not typical to have such a discharge.

Best wishes.
