What causes yellowish vaginal discharge with bad odor?

Hello, my name is Marlen and I have a few questions. Why am I getting a discharge that's in the color yellow and contains a bad odor. I've had this discharge for 3 years now and when I first got the discharge I was still a virgin so therefore can't be an STD, right? What is it? I've been to a gynecologist but she told me I just need to ovulate more. How do I even do that? Another question is, during the cold weather my vagina gets kinda dry, red, and it's hard for me to even open up my legs because I feel like it's gonna crack like chapped lips. What can I do to get rid of it? Please respond, thank you.
