What is Vaginal discharge ?

Vaginal discharge is very common among women. In most cases, it is not a problem. But most females do not know what vaginal discharge is normal and what is a cause of concern. Normal vaginal discharge is harmless, clear, may or may not be thick or thin, and has no odor.

Most females have about one tablespoon of vaginal discharge each day. There are different types of vaginal discharge. They vary in consistency, color and in some cases, odor as well. Look for changes in the color, amount, or smell of vaginal discharge. Such changes if accompanied by pain, irritation or discomfort, are something to worry about.

Diagnosis

At first, the gynecologist asks a set of questions about the symptoms and the conditions to better understand. It is difficult to diagnose based on vaginal discharge alone. The gynecologist asks the patient about other symptoms such as burning, itchiness, or irritation. Such factors can determine if the patient is suffering from Abnormal Vaginal Discharge. Based on the severity of the condition, treatment is recommended.

Procedure

Medication- Medications include antifungal medications, antibiotic pills, gels or creams to treat the condition.

Proper Hygiene- The gynecologist suggests practicing good hygiene. Along with taking the medications, the female should keep the vagina clean and dry, use gentle and mild soap, avoid scented soaps products for vagina, using wipes after peeing and always say no to douching.

Normal white vaginal discharge is not accompanied by itching or any other symptoms. If itching or other uncomfortable symptoms are present, thick white vaginal discharge can indicate a yeast infection.

  • Clear, stretchy vaginal discharge- Clear, stretchy vaginal discharge is actually the fertile mucous and is a sign of ovulating.

  • Clear, watery vaginal discharge- Clear and watery vaginal discharge can occur at different times of the menstrual cycle and can be heavy after exercising or strenuous activities.

  • Yellow or green vaginal discharge- Green or yellow colored vaginal discharge may indicate an infection. Thick or clumpy discharge like cottage cheese which has a foul odor is a common sign of vaginal infections.

  • Brown vaginal discharge- Brown vaginal discharge may occur right after periods, and is just the leftover blood after the periods end. If there are no other symptoms like itching or pain along with brown discharge, it is typically normal.
