User avatar This is a common side effect of the medication, so while I can't say for certain, it may just be the normal discharge. If you notice itching, pain or smell, you could have a yeast infection. Any time you use antibiotics for a bacterial infection you risk developing a yeast overgrowth but usually there are more symptoms and they are uncomfortable.
