Could thick green vaginal discharge before my period be a sign of a yeast infection or BV?Sexual Health Gynaecology
I am in my late 20s, and have recently been having a lot of clumpy greenish discharge the week before my period for the last 2 months. On other days it is just white. The discharge does not seem to have any discernible smell and appears white in the vagina, but comes out green. There is the occasional itch. I had frequent yeast infections in the past, but the discharge had always been white. I have been screened for all STDs 6 months ago and came back negative. I have not had any new sexual partners since. What could be potential causes, and is it likely to be another yeast infection or BV? Should I get screened for STDs again? Thank you.
Yeast infections tend to be thick white and clumpy, while bacterial vaginosis tends to be a grey watery discharge with a "fishy" odour.
It would certainly be a good idea to get retested for STDs to be sure that you are not infected.
