Discharge color

I just ended my period about a day ago and my discharge has turned into a pale yellow with a yolk like consistency and no foul smell accompanying it. Is this normal or is it an infection? All of my partners have stated they are clean.

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your message.

Yellow discharge may or may not indicate an infection. If the discharge is a pale yellow, odorless, and not accompanied by other symptoms, it's likely not a cause for concern. In other instances, yellow discharge can be a sign of a sexually transmitted infection (STI) or a bacterial infection.
