If you had a hysterectomy fifteen years ago, then the vaginal discharge you are experiencing is probably nothing more than a common yeast infection (Candida). If you go to your Doctor and explain the symptoms that you are having then they will perform some quick and simple tests on you to verify that it is a yeast infection (or something else) and then they will prescribe the necessary medicines to treat it. Doctors see these kinds of infections all the time. It is easily treatable and not anything to worry yourself about.
Yeast is present on human skin, so it is something that our body is used to. However, when new yeast is introduced to the vaginal area or there is an increased amount of yeast present, it can cause an infection to develop. Yeast infections can also occur after there has been damage or injury to the inner vagina, such as chemotherapy or in your case a hysterectomy. Yeast infections are not considered to be sexual transmitted diseases since Candida may be present in a healthy vagina and that celibate women have also been known to develop infections.
The most common symptom of a yeast infection in women is an itching feeling in the vaginal area. Other symptoms include a feeling of burning, soreness, pain during sex or when urinating and vaginal discharge. This is not always a symptom but when it is it has no odour and has a white thick appearance, almost like cottage cheese.
Yeast infections are treated with antifungal medications that may come in the form of creams that you apply directly to the infected area or pills that are taken orally as prescribed. As there are several different options, your Doctor will be able to decide which treatment or type of medication is best suited for you.

The vaginal discharge can be a bacterial or yeast infection not more than this as you had hysterectomy 15 years back. Visit doctor for differential diagnosis of yeast or bacterial infection and take appropriate treatments.
