Q: Doctor i have yellow discharged for a week.. i has smell but do not itchy and don disturb me at all... is it dangerous?

Symptoms:  Nothing

A:   Hello,
Welcome to ATD. Thank you for the query.

All women have some vaginal discharge. Normal discharge may appear clear, cloudy white, and/or yellowish when dry on clothing. Changes in normal discharge can occur for many reasons, including menstrual cycle, emotional stressors, nutritional status, pregnancy, usage of medications - including birth control pills, and sexual arousal.
So in your case, it may be normal if it is not accompanied by any of the following symptoms:-
Discharge accompanied by itching, rash or soreness
Persistent, increased discharge
Burning on skin during urination
White, clumpy discharge (somewhat like cottage cheese)
Grey/white or yellow/green discharge with a foul odour

Do visit a gynaecologist if you experience any of the above-mentioned symptoms.

Hope this helps. Take care.
