About one-fifth of women with gonorrhoea have a foul-smelling, greenish-yellow discharge.
On average, a woman discharges from her vagina about 2 grams of dead cells and about 3 grams of mucus every day, but the amount of normal discharge varies from woman to woman, and with the menstrual cycle.
Many women notice that, during the week following a period, there is hardly any discharge, and what there is has a thick consistency.
It is normal to have some vaginal discharge, because the vagina stays moist as part of its self-cleansing mechanism.
The normal moist discharge clears dead cells and bacteria from the vagina.
Towards the middle of the cycle (about 2 weeks after the start of a period) the amount increases and it becomes thin, slippery and clear, like uncooked egg white.
When this discharge is exposed to the air, it becomes brownish-yellow, so it is normal to find a yellowish stain on your knickers in the middle of the monthly cycle.
There may also be a feeling of moistness and stickiness.
It is easy to forget to remove the last tampon at the end of a period.
After a week or two, the tampon begins to fester, and there will be a foul-smelling discharge. If a woman has unprotected sex with a man who has it, she has a 60-90% chance of catching it.
It is serious because if it is not treated, it can spread upwards to the Fallopian tubes.
These tubes carry the egg from the ovary to the womb (uterus), so damage to them can cause infertility.
It comes mainly from glands in the cervix (the neck of the womb), and is slightly acidic, which helps to keep infections at bay.
The acidity results from lactic acid, formed by friendly bacteria as they break down sugars.
