Hello, i’m Dr. Huynh, a board certified physician. Did the discharge have a fishy odor to it? Have you had any other symptoms like vaginal itching or burning during urination?

Noo no itchy no burning and no smell
Doctor: Dr. Huynh, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

Good afternoon and thank you for the response! In that case, what you saw was likely normal vaginal discharge with a little bit of cervical mucus as well. The cervix can release a clear gel like mucus substance and when mixed with typical discharge can give it a yellow clear appearance. It usually does not have an odor and does not itch. It is normal!

Vaginal itching with thick or clumpy white discharge without odor is more often yeast.

Vaginal discharge that is thin and clear with a fishy odor is more often bacterial vaginosis.

If you have any follow up questions, let me know! Otherwise please take a moment to rate me a 5 or let me know how I can improve. Happy Holidays!

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
