Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. There’s a possibility of you suffering from trichomoniasis. The characteristic symptom of trichomoniasis infection is a heavy, frothy, yellowish green, fishy-smelling discharge from the vagina.

The infection can also cause discomfort during sex, vaginal itching, pain when passing urine and occasionally stomach pains. Diagnosis can be confirmed only after pelvic examination and swab samples of the discharge and cervix swabs. Treatment depends on the same.

So please consult a gynecologist and get yourself evaluated. 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.
