I'm a 19 year old female. I have opaque pink vaginal discharge that smells slightly like chlorine. I traveled to New Zealand before the issue started and will not return home for another 5 months. Could this be caused from traveling? Is is something else that I need to worry about? Would it be worth the doctor's bill to get it checked?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
The altered smell and consistency in vaginal discharge could be due to food changes, dehydration, change in lifestyle, sleeping pattern, hormonal imbalance etc. You should consider getting a thorough check done by visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the new place. Maintain healthy diet, drink plenty of water to maintain hydration. Try to be stress free and take adequate rest.
Take care.
