Today when I was taking a nap, I woke up to usual cramps. I took some Midol, and the cramps went away within an hour. Sorry to be so graphic, but about an hour or two, I went to the bathroom. After I was finished peeing, I felt something coming out of my vagina. I thought I started my period, but when I looked, it was a green discharge. I noticed it barley had some pink tint to it as well, and it was odorless. I have never had that type of discharge before. It usually hurts when I have sex too, but I don't know if that has anyhting to do with the green discharge.
Anyways, I just wanted to see if I should be alarmed enough to call a doctor or if this is fairly common in most women.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Altered vaginal discharge, abdominal cramps, painful intercourse could be indicative of vaginal infections. Go ahead with visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for examination, vaginal swab/smear test to identify causative agent. Get started on treatment as indicated. If infective cause is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes.
