5. Yellow to Yellowy Green/Odor
If your discharge is an unpleasant greeny-yellow color with an equally unpleasant smell of rotten eggs or fish, and you are experiencing itching, swelling and even bleeding in some cases, then you may very well have Trichomoniosis. ‘Trick’ is a sexually transmitted infection that is obviously caught through practicing unsafe sex. If you have these symptoms, make a doctor’s appointment straight away so you can be treated. DO NOT have sex again until you are cured because Trick is incredibly contagious. If the discharge is more yellow than green, it could be a sign of other STIs such as gonorrhea, Chlamydia, or syphilis. Any of these might be accompanied by very smelly odor, genital irritation, swelling, a burning sensation when peeing, itchiness, vaginal bleeding, pain during sex, and even a fever. Any discharge on the yellow/green spectrum should be checked out as soon as possible.
