Question: yellow snot-like discharge
|ginger_fairy1220 - Thu Jun 17, 2010 12:30 am||
I am on my period and rather than it being red and bloody, as usual, it is dark yellow, almost a brown color, and is a snot-like consistency, in combination with an unpleasant scent. I also have a large, hard knot on my side, where my left ovary is. I have been unusually dehydrated the past week, drinking almost a gallon of water a day. I have not been sexually active for over 2 years now. There is no itching or burning. What is wrong with me?

A yellow discharge can be a sign of vaginal infection, even if not sexually active so you should have this checked out. It is not an emergency but should be followed.
