Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear An_252896,
Vaginal discharges certainly can accompany perimenopausal symptoms, but it's not clear from you description if this is related. It could just be related to having a vaginal infection; and in that case, if you wanted to try some over the counter remedies, you could try refresh-which will make the vagina more acidic, and help get rid of the vaginal infection.
Good luck,
Mary Jane
