Vaginal discharge can be concerning. Our bodies are like machines that are constantly cleansing and repairing themselves. Discharge, however, can cause panic if it is anything out of the ordinary. In the female reproductive system, fluid made by glands inside the vagina and cervix washes away dead cells and bacteria. This cleansing process keeps the body healthy and happy.
Normal V.S. Abnormal White Discharge
In most cases, vaginal discharge is completely normal. The amount of discharge and the hue can vary dramatically, however. Depending on a woman’s menstrual cycle, it can be a milky, almost white discharge or completely clear. The smell of the discharge can also change, particularly if you’re pregnant or are suffering from an infection of some sort.
Women who have noticed a significant change in the amount and odor of their discharge should take note, however. Itching, burning or pain during sexual intercourse can also signal a more serious problem that should be dealt with right away.
While a small amount of white discharge is nothing to be concerned about, a thick, white discharge can be. A thick, white, cheesy discharge can denote a yeast infection. Other symptoms of a yeast infection include pain and swelling around the vulva, itching, and painful intercourse.
More common, less concerning, causes of white discharge include ovulation, sexual excitement, pregnancy and even stress. If the discharge you have is odorless and isn’t particularly heavy, it is most likely something you shouldn’t be concerned about.
What To Watch For?
If you have a white discharge, there are some things you may want to look out for:
- • Curdy Vaginal Discharge
