What Is White Discharge(Vaginal discharge) ?
Vaginal discharge may be anomalous or regular one. In many cases, that doesn’t mean an issue. Regular discharge from the vagina is clear, dense or thin, and is generally odourless. During a woman’s monthly menstrual cycle, the amount produced and the consistency can change at various times.For example, when a woman is ovulating, discharge might become heavier, thicker, and more visible. Now it may also be gray.
Various shades of white discharge may be common, especially if it occurs during ovulation or just before a woman’s period. There is usually no underlying issue as long as there is no vaginal itching, burning or unpleasant scent that follows the discharge.
Yet white vaginal discharge could also be a sign of an infection in other cases. If the discharge is clumpy, and looks similar to cottage cheese, a yeast infection can cause it.
