TMI postpartum discharge ??....

TMI Postpartum Discharge question...
So I am four weeks postpartum. This is my 5th baby so you would think I would know this, but what I am going through doesnt seem right. I have had this kinda thick mucousy yellow discharge for the past several days. I know a slight yellow discharge can be normal, but this seems too yellow and stringy kinda. The whole area down there seems to be irritated, but not very bad. I don't know if this is releavant but my legs are always achy, like if I had the flu. I'm guessing there could be infection, but what? There doesn't seem to be an odor either. HELP!

  • I buy one of those home test kits for yeast infection just to be safe. I would also talk to your doctor just to rule other things out. Especially being number 5.
