39 wks pregnant, a yellowish-greenish discharge!

User Profile
I'm going to be 39 wks pregnant on 3/29/11 and I have a yellowish-greenish discharge. I noticed it on saturday and again today so I called my doc for an appt. (I go for that tomorrow morning) Last month I was treated for bacterial vaginosis as well as chlamydia. At my appt. last week I was told my tests all came back negative. My fiance was treated for the chlamydia as well. Should he have also been treated for the bacteria vaginosis? My discharge has no smell to it.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your partner should have been treated simultaneously for bacterial vaginosis too as he has risk of re-infecting you if you continue to have intercourse. Request your doctor/obstetrician for a vaginal swab/smear test. if you are having abdominal cramps ad tightening of uterus associated, then the mild greenish discharge could also suggest possibility of, cervical mucus plug coming out, rupture of the bag of waters and fetal distress (along with passing of meconium). An NST test done would help in confirming if there is fetal distress associated. If uterus is found to be active, you might have to be induced to have the delivery or have a cesarean section done if baby is in distress.
Take care.
