General & Family Physician 's  Response

If the vaginal swab testing resulted negative for bacteria, I should ask about other parameters (yeast cells, etc.).

Next, apart genital infection, I would also recommend to do an urine analysis. Urinary tract infection are often associated with vaginal infection.

Having clear slimy, stringy discharge might be also associated with :
- ovulation period
- allergic reaction to latex (when condoms are used) or other chemicals used while sexually involved
- wearing inappropriate underwear (non-cottony, tight, etc.)

I advise to keep a good vaginal hygiene and to discuss with your OG specialist about using local (vaginal) suppositories. Your partner should be also tested and treated as well.

Wish you health!
