The most common cause of green vaginal discharge
is a sexually transmitted infection known as trichomoniasis
. The discharge often has a foul odor and is typically more yellowish-green than pure green. Intercourse and urination may cause discomfort, and the genital area may be itchy.
Trichomoniasis can easily be diagnosed by microscopic examination of the discharge. Since it is transmitted sexually, tests for other infections, including gonorrhea
and bacterial vaginosis
, may be performed at the same time. Trichomoniasis, gonorrhea, and bacterial vaginosis are curable with appropriate antibiotic therapy.
Consult tour doctor for tne diagnosis and treatment.
