Question: Greenish yellow discharge from my vagina

 marysmithgalway - Wed Dec 24, 2008 11:58 am


Last week i had a greenish yellow discharge from my vingina..also my vigina was very swollen and itchy. I thought i may have thrush so i used one canestan pesseries....that was too days ago. The swelling has gone down a bit and its not as itchy. I have no notices that i have very light bleeding inside(light pink..maybe from the canestan pesseries? When i urinate it doesn't really burn only a little sometimes.

Ive never had unprotected sex but i was with a guy last week and he touched my vigina. Could this be an STD im rreally worried. please help

User avatar Hello,
It sounds like your sexual activity has been responsible so I doubt this is a case of STD. Nevertheless, if the discharge continues, it might be good to find out if there is some kind of infection - urinary or vaginal.

Best wishes
