Hi,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
Stress is not a cause for vaginal discharge of this type, rather the discharge can lead/aggravate to stress.
There may be a local/hormonal/infection cause for such a discharge.
It would be advisable to undergo a local examination by a gynecologist to ascertain which one of this possibilities is a causative one.
I hope the advise would be helpful for you.

Hi I m a little embarrassed to ask about this after I ve researched it. My boyfriend and I had sex 24 hrs ago and we wanted to try it without a condom so trusting him fully I agreed and thankfully he used the withdrawal method before the end. I know it was stupid now that I think about it but this morning I felt some vaginal discharge and it was cloudy white and stretchy and was wondering if that s normal for the vagina to produce that after sex. I m always very hygienic and clean my body after sex so I feel comfortable knowing I haven t gotten anything or am going to get pregnant. But there is some doubt as to whether I could get pregnant.

I am a 19 year-old female. I started having sex with my boyfriend in February. He is the only sex partner I have ever had. Recently, I experienced an orange-colored vaginal discharge and was present for 2 days and in a light quantity. Then the discharged changed to a yellow color and there was a slight odor, but not very fishy. It itches and I've been using anti-itch creme which helps a little. Last night, I had sex with my boyfriend and it hurt a little. I feel like I have an infection but not sure what kind or if I should see a doctor. Or do I have an STD?
