1. Yellow or green vaginal discharge.
A yellow or green discharge could indicate that you've been infected with a sexually transmitted infection (STI).
2. Red or pink discharge.
It's possible that it's usual around the time of your menstruation. Otherwise, it could be pregnancy, you should see a doctor right away.
3. Creamy Or White Discharge.
It could be a sign of a yeast infection, if your discharge is a little too creamy and looks like cottage cheese. It could, however, be normal if it is not paired with a foul odor.
4. Grey Discharge.
If you have a grey vaginal discharge, it's possible that you have bacterial vaginosis. It could comes with a fishy odor as well.
5. Clear Discharge.
This is the most common type of vaginal discharge and is something you should expect. It has no smell or an acidic smell. It can also alter consistency depending on when you're on your cycle, so don't be alarmed if it thickens, slimes up, or increases in volume as long as it's still clear.
