So I'm having that clear, liquid scentless discharge that I hear many women get when pregnant (and lots of it) that I fear may be the result of a broken condom incident a few weeks back. But recently, my vagina started to burn and itch and I acquired a small cut at the opening. I have reason to believe that because of how badly it hurts, the cut is infected. My once-clear discharge has turned a sort of yellowy color as well, but is still scentless.
I got some monistat and treated myself for a yeast infection in case that was the cause of the discharge, but it didn't help or change anything. Still lots of liquid discharge and itching and pain.
I'm probably going to see a doctor tomorrow, but because its Sunday I want to know if anyone has any instant advice to give me.
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The yellowish discharge could indicate bacterial infection. You will need a vaginal smear and culture test to identify infective agent. Get started on treatment at the earliest. If infection is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Avoid having intercourse while being on treatment. Use loose cotton undergarments. Avoid douching and se of harsh soaps or perfumes. Drink plenty of water.
