Unusual discharge

Save Share

Most ladies have vaginal discharge, so it’s important to know when it is referred to as normal discharge and when it isn’t.

Vaginal discharge is considered abnormal if the following is true:

Blood red to dried brown is considered to be normal only during your period. If you have bleeding other than menstruation or if it occurs a year or longer after menopause, you should see your ob-gyn.

Possible reasons: Irregular menstrual cycles, infection, hormonal changes, cancer, etc.

If you have any of these symptoms, call your GP immediately.

Pale yellow to neon green

The yellow shade of vaginal discharge can extend to include a slight yellowish hue to daffodile yellow and green.



Gray discharge is a danger sign that something is wrong with your reproductive system. Most often it is a symptom of a common bacterial infection, such as bacterial vaginosis.

If you have any of these symptoms, call your GP immediately.
