Hello! My name isXXXXX and I will be happy to assist you today.
Any odor to the discharge? and vaginal itching?
If there is only a mild odor, it is most likely a physiologic discharge (ie normal). Discharge is definitely heavily effected by changes in hormone levels... but some women at baseline do have higher amount of discharge to the point that it is uncomfortable. The uterine embolization procedure likely did not cause this either. While you can have your hormones checked, it is more than likely going to come back normal if you are still having regular periods. The good news is when you approach menopause (in the next few years) it will likely decrease and eventually stop.
Now, there is a slight chance it is caused by an infection like bacterial vaginosis. If you want to investigate this possibility, you can have your doctor perform a vaginal screen looking for various infection possibilities.
