Private, same-day STD testing
Vaginal discharge is a normal, daily occurrence for women. However, when the color, smell or consistency of vaginal discharge changes, an infection may be present. Yellow discharge may be normal for some ladies, but when this new color suddenly appears, especially when other symptoms are present, it crucial to get this checked out to avoid serious complications.
A number of conditions and infections can cause yellow discharge.
When experiencing yellow or abnormal discharge, STD testing is recommended. Untreated STDs can lead to reproductive problems and infertility, so it’s important to test for STDs when experiencing any possible symptoms. A test for chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomoniasis is advised since these three STDs exhibit similar symptoms.
When caused by an STD, yellow discharge in women can be cured with antibiotics. STD tests are required to determine which antibiotic is required, since these STDs can all cause similar symptoms. Be sure to get tested and treated promptly to avoid serious complications. Also, make sure any partners are treated and avoid sex until STD treatment is complete.
