I recently gave birth to my first child about 9 weeks ago, we are breast feeding, and everything is going great withthe baby! At my 6 six week postpartum appt I was given a clean bill of health! For the past three weeks I have had a yellowish mucus discharge that has a slight smell to it. It is slightly sore down there and I think swollen too. The soreness gets worse if I stand for a longer period of time or after intercourse. I am also not sure if what I think is swollen is actually normal looking. I am not sure what this is and I can't find any information about it either. Is this related to childbirth and postpartum, or something different?? Is the discharge normal? Any ideas or help would be wonderful. Thanks!
