Is the discharge coming from the urostomy bag?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The discharge is coming from the vagina.

This certainly sounds like you may have a vaginal infection. You need to get into see your doctor for an examination and you may need to be started on a antibiotic for this. If it's a fungal infection you need an antifungal instead of an antibiotic. But only a doctor can determine this. Hope this helps.
