  • You could be ovulating. From what i understand, your vaginal fluid becomes more mucus... when we are ovulating. How old are you? Because i didn't start noticing the ovulating mucus until after i was ohhh....about 25. As far as it being yellowish? I don't know...every woman is different i guess. BUT, if it does not smell, then that is probably all it is. Smelly discharge means an infection, so maybe just keep checking how it smells if your worried. I know that seems gross, but at least it would help you know whether or not it is something to worry about.

  • I get sticky yellow discharge for a few days every month just before my period begins. As long as you are getting regular gyn exams and have no other symptoms of infection, I wouldn't worry about it one bit.

  • Cervical mucus appears when your body is preparing to ovulate.
