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.

Treatment of Vaginal discharge


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.


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.

Vaginal discharge – What’s normal and what’s not?

Vaginal discharge is a natural phenomenon that takes place within the body of every woman. The vaginal discharge comes from the glands inside the cervix and the vagina. The fluid is also known as vaginal secretions. Every day, the vagina cleanses the old lining eliminating the old cells which come out in the form of vaginal discharge.

Not all vaginal discharge is the same and not all discharge is normal. The discharge varies from woman to woman; while some experience it less, other experience it frequently and in more quantity. How can you know if the vaginal discharge that you are experiencing is normal or abnormal?

Normal vaginal discharge is odorless, thin in texture, and sticky and elastic in nature. Normal vaginal discharge is either white or off-white in color.

An abnormal vaginal discharge carries an unpleasant smell, and appears greyish, greenish or pus-like in color. If the discharge looks like cottage cheese or leads to burning and irritation in the vagina, the discharge is abnormal in nature.

Is white discharge after sex normal?

Yes, white discharge after sex is absolutely normal. This is usually caused dues to the sexual excitement that causes an increase in blood flow in the genitals. This leads to swelling in the clitoris and the labia lining of the vagina and vaginal glands secretes clear, white fluid during and after sexual intercourse.

The white discharge that appears after sex is thicker than arousal fluids and hence easily noticeable. But, if the vaginal discharge is accompanied by painful sex, or the post-sex vaginal fluid is greenish or yellowish in nature, it indicates an underlying health complication.
