Vaginal discharge

Typically after my period, I get a yellow, mucus discharge. It doesn't smell or anything. It seems something similar to what comes out of your nose. What can this be?

Hello Anonymous,

Vaginal discharge is a combination of a fluid and cells that are continuously shed through your vagina. Glands in the cervix produce a clear mucus. These secretions may turn white or yellow when exposed to the air. The amount of mucus produced by the cervical glands varies throughout the menstrual cycle.

If you are having no other symptoms, such as odor, itching or burning, there is nothing to worry about.
