Hi,
Recently I had sex and the last time before that was in January. Soon after that I suspected I was getting an UTI so i began antibiotics. A day or so after that I began getting this yellow discharge in large amounts. It had small chunks in it but the more days go by the chunkier it is getting. It is also odorless. I've had a yeast infection and it feels like one but it's never been yellowish. It is also starting to itch around my vaginal opening. I am going to the doctor soon but I don't have the money to get every test so could this be narrowed down?

Hello,

Any increase in the amount of normal vaginal discharge, any abnormal odor or consistency of the vaginal fluid, or pain, itching, and burning accompanied with the vaginal discharge can all be signs of infection or other serious disorders.

A yellow vaginal discharge with chunks of pus in it could be a sign of sexually transmitted bacterial infection or venereal diseases which include Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Vulvovaginitis and other similar sexually transmitted infections.

Other common causes for a discolored vaginal discharge could be a hormonal imbalance, poor feminine hygiene, and even a poor diet and tight clothes.

A detailed local examination by your healthcare provider along with investigation on the discharge would help in diagnosing the exact cause behind it and help in starting appropriate medical treatment.
