Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Vaginal discharge is a normal mucus fluid that comes out of a woman that comes from white blood cells, bacteria and tissues. This discharge is beneficial in maintaining the health of your female organs and is characterized by clear to whitish mucus and is odorless. In addition, normal vaginal discharge is usually not accompanied by itching or burning in the pubic area.
Vaginal discharge with yellow or green or foamy mucus, is closely related to certain parasitic infections. While vaginal discharge is brown and contains blood, it is generally caused by an irregular menstrual cycle.
In your case, because you have a history of yellowish and frothy vaginal discharge, you should check your condition with a gynecologist for further treatment. As for a torn hymen or hymen, it doesn't really matter if it actually happens, because the hymen is only a remnant of development from when you were a fetus, and doesn't have any protective effect on women.
Meanwhile, you should avoid using perfume or other scented chemicals on your vagina, avoid wearing pants that are too tight, use cotton pants, wash your genitals from front to back after urinating, and eat healthy foods with balanced nutrition.
