What is it?

If you are having more vaginal discharge than usual, it may be a sign that something is wrong. Abnormal vaginal discharge can be white, creamy, clear, yellow, brown, bloody or green. While some vaginal discharge is normal for women, abnormal vaginal discharge may occur due to a urinary tract or sexually transmitted infection such as:

  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Yeast infection
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Human papillomavirus


Treatment depends on the cause of the abnormal vaginal discharge. Treatment options include medications and lifestyle changes. Your GP will diagnose the cause of this symptom and develop a personalised treatment plan.
