I have a yellow discharge odorless with slight itching. Sometimes it can get yellow- pale green, (not frothy, not boogie-like). I treated it with thrush medication and it worked but now (a couple of months later) it is back. What can it be?
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the recurrent yellowish green discharge that you are having for such a long time. Yellowish - green discharge is suggestive of trichomoniasis which is a sexually transmitted disease. It is often seen in combination with other sexually transmitted diseases and so a person having recurrent trichomoniasis should be evaluated for Chlamydia and gonorrhea also. My sincere advice would be to consult a gynecologist and get vaginal or urethral discharge examined under a microscope as well as its culture done. These STDâs have often been associated with inflammation and infertility if present for a long time. Please consult a gynecologist for this.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
