Thanks for the query.

It looks like uterine endometritis to me. It can happen after any uterine procedure. The discharge should be sent to the lab for investigations.

It is better to get VDRL test done along with blood counts so that the course of antibiotics can be planned for you.

You can use vaginal wash containing lactobacilli.

A course of doxycycline along with lactobacilli and probiotics helps a lot. Doxycycline is a prescription drug.

Metronidazole or secnidazole should also be given under doctor's prescription.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Thanks for writing back.

Any uterine procedure which is used for the ablation of the endometrium like thermal ballon , using electric energy or laser can cause uterine infection or PID (Pelvic inflammatory disease).

Yellowish material can be the shedded endometrial flakes also that's why I told you to get the lab investigations to see what kind of infection it is.

There is no harm in taking the antibiotics so as to eliminate any kind of pelvic inflammation and for that doxycycline or clindamycin are the drugs of choice

Hope this clarifies your doubts. Any further query is most welcome.

Please accept my answer if you do not have any more questions.

Take care.
Best wishes.
