Umm... so I'm not experiencing pain or any physical discomfort-type symptoms that go with infection, but I thought I should ask just to be on the safe side. After I started masturbating with a toy, I feel like the consistancy of my discharge changed. Like it became a little more colored -either white or yellow, and developed a little bit stronger smell. I might just be imagining it, I'm not sure -does this sound like an infection?

Just what you're describing doesn't signal an infection to me at the moment. Stronger smell doesn't necessarily mean foul smell and healthy discharge can range from clear to white to yellowish, and it could just be that you're simply more easily noticing smaller changes. I wouldn't worry unless you do start having irritation or if it continues changing/becoming worse to you.

Also, are you using condoms over your toy or is it made of a meterial that can be easily sterilized, and are you doing so? Not being able to properly clean a sex toy can lead to it harboring germs and making it more likely for you to get an infection in the future.
