I just went to the bathroom and noticed a couple of large clumps of tannish dark yellow discharge. There was also a small little clump that was basically brown. It was stretchy - if you know what I mean? I ended my period last Thursday - could there be any connection?

Is dark yellow a bad sign? There really isn't much of an odor that's out of the norm - it just sort of smells like vinegar like always.

Since I am paranoid I typed in "dark yellow discharge" on google and cervical cancer came up 29392 times. One of the sites even said leg pain can be a symptom of it and I have been having leg pains a lot lately. Am I just paranoid?

Oh, and I'd also like to add I am not currently sexually active, but I have been tested twice in the past and both tests were negative for any kind of STD. I have only had one sexual partner. I also have a history with bacterial vaginosis.

Sounds like mucus with a tinge of something. Yellowing could just be from the mucus drying out. Doesn't sound suspicious to me. Just keep an eye out in case you do have any sort of BV symptoms recurring.
