What Are Lower Abdominal Pain and Vaginal Discharge?

Lower abdominal pain is pain that occurs at or below the belly button. It can radiate to the pelvic region. This pain can be cramp-like, achy, dull, or sharp.

Vaginal discharge is a normal occurrence. It is not usually a cause for concern. The vagina produces secretions as a way to clean itself and maintain its pH balance. However, infections can affect the vagina’s pH level, resulting in changes in vaginal discharge. Symptoms of abnormal vaginal discharge include a foul odor, cottage cheese-like consistency, and an unusual color, such as yellow or green.
