Hello,
Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
Did you forget to remove any tampon?
How much is the discharge?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

well probably had tampons in longer than I should have used regular when I should have used next one up..Also its not that much discharge but its like I can feel myself leaking or something and I go check and there is some wetness with yellow color and that smell again..

Thank you for the information.
If the tampon remains longer there can be bacterial infection.
This can cause yellow discharge & bad smell.
Other possibilities like bacterial vaginosis as you know can cause fishy smell.
But it may not be apparent at the start.
Trichomoniasis is another infection which can give yellow greenish discharge with smell.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
The discharge needs to be tested.
Over the counter medicines would not help as the possibility of bacterial infection is more.
Please avoid douching or scented liquid to clean.
Use plain water for cleaning the area.
I hope this information helps.
I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.
Please feel free for any follow up query.
Regards.
