Weird Discharge
Hey everyone,

I'm an 18 year old female, and I've been getting a weird vaginal discharge lately. It first happened after a period, and it was a light beige color with a kind of cheesy smell - not really bad or anything, but just different to what I normally get. That lasted a few days after my period, and then my discharge went semi back to normal in color, but the smell was still the same. No itching or bumps.

I've also had a pain in my lower right abdomen, and I've gotten an ultrasound on it with clear results.

Could this be bacterial vaginosis? Does bv ever cause abdominal pain? Or is it just a normal change in discharge? I've been pretty consistent the past 7 years or so, so this isn't the usual thing. I'm a virgin, so it's not an sti.

I'm in university right now, and it might be a while until I can get another doctor appointment, so I just wanted to post on here to see if anyone had anything similar.

Thanks so much!

Bacterial vaginosis causes a fishy odor and greenish discharge.  Yeast, which is very common, causes a slight sour odor and whitish discharge.  Using yogurt, cutting back on sugar and white flour foods, increasing vegetables, taking odorless garlic pills, or whatever works for you for yeast should clear this up.  Very to wash underwear in hot water, detergent and baking soda.

Thanks, but I don't think it's yeast infection - the symptoms don't really match up. I've been getting a more brownish in color discharge, but nothing else.
