2. Vaginal Discharge

Vaginal discharge is normal in healthy women. Liquid or clear mucous discharge is nothing to be worried about as it helps to protect the vagina from unwanted pathogens. On the other hand, abnormally thick or foul-smelling vaginal discharge can be a symptom associated with many conditions that require medical assessment. The yellow or green coloring of the vaginal discharge is also a clear sign that something is not right.

Changes in vaginal discharge are present in over 70% of patients with pelvic inflammatory disease. Depending on the pathogen, it can be a thick mucus discharge or it can even appear as a greenish and foul-smelling discharge as well.
