What do foul odor and yellowish discharge in a person indicate?

I have a yellowish discharge randomly and it does smell. It makes me self conscience because I can smell it so I assume other people can too. I am on the Mariana, I was on it 5 years prior to this, I just got it out back in June 2016. I recently got an STD check and it came back clean, should I go in and get it checked or is there something I can do to stop it?

I think you may be having bacterial vaginosis. A vaginal smear may be needed to confirm it. The treatment is with Metronidazole suppositories or polyginax suppositories for 12 nights.

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

Take care
