  • I dunno, sounds like a yeast infection to me? I only ever get them when I am pregnant and I only ever notice them when I get a heavy discharge like you described.. never smells and I never get itchy from it. But like pp said, if you are really wondering and no one seems to have an answer, just call your doc and ask the nurse :)

  • The yellowish greenish color is probably a sign of something minor that your doc can prescribe a cream for by phone. Don't really know what it might be but I'm sure something simple that a nurse by phone could even answer and should be able to get your doc to take care of by phone, unless the doc wants to take a look at your healing process. You might start doing the sidz bath soak at least once a day.
