Question
Hi I'm 47, just had my period last week. I have lots of fibroids. Today I had a dull ache on the right side. I took Advil and it went away. Now I'm have lots of non-odorous, yellow discharge. So much, I've put on a pad. It has a gooey, egg-like consistency. My last pap (this year) was normal.


What could be going on?

You definitely need a gynaec check up at the earliest including an ultrasound scan.
Hope my answer helps you.

Thank you your answer.

I do have a pretty large submucosal fibroid. I can actually feel it when placing a tampon. I have, according to my OB/GYN a 4 month size uterus and my plan is to have a hysterectomy at some point.

The volume and consistency of discharge was my concern. I was completely soiled! It has slowed down.

Hi
GREETINGS
You can plan hystrectomy later but get a per speculam examination to find out from where the discharge is coming.Also any polyps?
Hope you are convinced.

I'm not sure if I have polyps. I will schedule an appointment ASAP.

There's just so much discharge. I'm so worried. Praying it's not something serious.

Thank you so much for your answers!!
