Over the last four days I have noticed a liquid vaginal discharge

Customer Question

Over the last four days I have noticed a liquid vaginal discharge leaving my knickers damp with yellowish hue. I am 65, sexually active in a monogamous relationship. No apparent smell as yet

Hi. So no burning in the area or on urination?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No but I am off to Australia on Monday for three weeks and wonder if I should somehow get to a clinic. Not easy time wise.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
I understand Sally. Two possibilities here--either a yeast or a bacterial vaginosis, and neither an STD if that were your concern. It would be best to get a culture for this but for now you could try over the counter Monistat cream or its equivalent and an oral lactobacillus probiotic and perhaps that will take care of the problem
