What does orange vaginal discharge indicate?

Is there something wrong with my vagina? I have completely normal discharge. It smells normal and the consistency of it hasn t concerned me. I am sexually active, but I ve never noticed orange pieces in my discharge. My boyfriend does cum inside me, and it s burned the past couple times. But this has only started recently.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Orange vaginal discharge with burning is concerning for vaginal infection, most likely trichomoniasis or bacterial vaginosis. Vaginal swab microscopy can confirm the diagnosis. Management is with an antibiotic, Metronidazole.
