I have noticed that sometimes I get a large amount of light yellow discharge after urinating or during the day. I have a history of irregular periods and was just wondering what this light yellow discharge is or what it means?
Welcome to ehealthforum.
If the yellow discharge is associated with foul smell or itching or burning or discomfort, then it could suggest infection. The passing of this yellow discharge only during urination could also suggest problems in bladder or renal system (infection, inflammation). Drink plenty of water to see if these can be flushed out. Visit your gynecologist for further help to see what is causing them. If infection is detected, you will need complete antibiotic course to get rid of them.
