Having pink discharge. Strong in the morning, light during day. No infections. What could it be?

I m 37 never had kids and out of no where I started getting a pink discharge . Really strong in the mornings but light during the day. I don t think I can have children but am really concerned about it. One dr said it was normal and did only a urinalysis to find no infections. What should I be concerned about most if I m not pregnant and don t have an std?

Hi thanks for your question.
Pink discharge could be due to infection of the vagina or cervix and every infection of genital organs doesn't mean STD. Cervicitis that is inflammation of cervix and vaginitis that is infection of vagina can give rise to pink discharge. There are millions of organisms in the vagina both good and bad, a balance is kept between good and bad organism due to many factors present in vagina. Any bacteria can cause infection of vagina leading to pink discharge. There are many factors which cause inflammation of cervix, which could also give rise to pink discharge. Consult a gynaecologist who may examine you to determine cause of discharge. He/she may take swab for culture from your vagina.
Hope this answers your question
