It is important to call your doctor, as you do not want to self-diagnose what the yellow discharge is, especially if it is "a lot" as you describe. It is best to have a diagnosis to know exactly what it causing it, so it can be treated appropriately!

Vaginal discharge should be either clear, white or off-white. A yellow discharge could be a sign of infection.

The scent of discharge is also telling, as it should be a mild scent or no scent at all.

Do you have any additional symptoms?
Do you have a Gynecologist you call, to see if you have signs of infection?
