What causes yellow vaginal discharge in pregnancy?

im 36 weeks pregnant and i ve been losing some yellow discharge over the past few days (it s usually stringy & thick, around the size of a 10p) i also keep having a strong throbbing pain/ache in my lower back, this happens every few hours, lasts for 1 minute or so, then fades to leave a dull ache in my lower back.

Hello dear,I understand your concern.In my opinion the yellow discharge might suggest vaginal infection.This vaginal infection might irritate the uterus leading to back pain .So I suggest you to consult doctor to rule out vaginal infection as you might need a course of antibiotics if infection is there.Dont worry.
