Is this abnormal?
Ive had Yellow discharge for a whole 4 months, does not look like its stopping anytime soon, and its getting annoying. Doc doesnt know what to do, just said to wait awhile longer. Grrr.
Also, sorry if TMI but it smells like vinegar. Has anyone had this? Is it Lochia? Im worried now.
Not sure where I should have posted this. So Im sorry if its in the wrong spot.

Lochia for 4 months and counting... TMI

Lochia is post partum bleeding, not discharge.
Sounds like your internal flora has changed - maybe thrush or something? Otherwise it might just be that you aren't drinking enough water, as that can cause your discharge to be thicker and more smelly.

Ive had it the whole time since Ive given birth, it started red, then went yellow... I just assumed it was Lochia Alba (the end part). Not sure though... might try drinking more water.

Now that I have, you have an easy way to tell which it is, because leucocytes show up in those rainbow looking pee-on-a-stick things in the docs office (I think it's the top square of the stick - if there are leucocytes that square gets purple coloured) and if there are no leucocytes present, then it's not still lochia.
Can you ask your doc to let you use one of those sticks to test your discharge? (Or buy your own?)

I think you can buy those sticks at the chemist if you'd prefer to do it on your own

I've scoured the web and found nothing. Tr1na I saw that you are still active on these boards so would love some input! I am so done with liners í ½í¸ž
