I would get it checked out. Green normally means infection.

See a doctor, green/yellow usually indicates infection, even without an odor.

No. Not the kind of infection we were talking about. A cold wouldn't affect your lady bits.

No. You need to see a doctor, asap, before you have sex again.

I wouldn't straight away assume its an infection, certainly get checked out though.
I've had it during every pregnancy, not all the time but sometimes i would get it, especially towards the end with my boys and it was my plug. Which you develope very early in pregnancy also.
With my oldest, my water broke at 30 weeks and I was monitored for infection until I had him at 36 weeks. The light green mucus was my plug, they certainly wouldn't have let me stay pregnant if tests came back that I had an infection(and it wasnt meconium)
I've had it during every pregnancy(like a green tinted EW mucus) its been fine and other ladies on here said they have too, it was normal pregnancy discharge for them.
But I have also had darker green with a yeast infection but that was accompanied by itching.



So certainly get it checked out, you don't want to leave it if is infection, but don't assume it definitely an infection.
Have you tested?

Of course they'd let you stay pregnant if you had BV. They just treat it. The problem is that it can lead to other issues in pregnancy if it goes untreated. (Like pre term labor, and premature rupture of membranes for example) That's why they worry so much and treat it so aggressively. The only time they wouldn't let you stay pregnant if you had an infection is if it was chorioamnionitis. That's an infection in the amniotic fluid itself. That is something you wouldn't be able to ignore though. It normally is fatal for the baby and mom if it's not treated immediately.



Green discharge can happen during pregnancy i do agree with that part, but i wouldn't call it 'normal' either.

With a ruptured water... No they wouldn't! It was made clear that any infection and I would be induced straight away!
If waters are intact then yes they'd just treat it!



Chorioamnionitis is an infection of the placenta, amnion and chorion sacks which can then infect your fluid.
I had it with one of my angels.

We're talking about weird discharge here ... not ruptured membranes. She doesn't even know if she's pregnant. There's no water to break in this situation. Yes I know what that is, I had it with my first son too and of course they would have induced in that situation. It gets scary real fast, as you obviously know.
