Question: Hi Doctor,
My wife has given birth to a baby girl approx 2 months back.
She is having vaginal discharge (white) after the bleeding stopped. We consulted doctor and she said that this discharge is normal after delivery. It is still continuing. Is it normal? Please suggest.
Regards,

Brief Answer:
Not a cause for concern.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

Let me assure you that it is normal for some amount of lochia (as the discharge is called) to keep coming out a couple of months after delivery. It is normal and nothing to be concerned about. Unless there is active fresh bleeding you need not worry.

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?
