Yellow Discharge

03/12/2010

Question:

I am very sensitive in my lower area. I had sex with my husband last night and when I woke I had a burning sensation and bright yellow discharge. I wanted to know what could it be. I was also thinking that it could that I started using a new soap and that could be the cause of the "burning" but I do not understand where the discharge is coming from. Should I go see a doctor? could it be the soap or and STD he may have brought into our home?

Answer:

I highly recommend you see your doctor for further evaluation. This can be an irritation from the soap. However, a face to face evaluation with your doctor will help in arriving at the right diagnosis.
