white discharge is common at the beginning and end of your cycle. Normal white discharge is not accompanied by itching. If itching is present, thick white discharge can indicate a yeast infection.
Different shades of white discharge may be normal, especially if it occurs during ovulation or just before a woman’s period. As long as there is no vaginal itching, burning, or unusual smell accompanying the discharge, there is probably no underlying issue. But in other instances, white vaginal discharge could be a sign of an infection. If the discharge is clumpy and looks similar to cottage cheese, it may be due to a yeast infection.
A yeast infection may also cause vaginal itching and burning. It occurs due to an overgrowth of a type of fungus called Candida.
Thin, white vaginal discharge that has a strong fishy odor may indicate bacterial vaginosis (BV). BV is the most common vaginal infection in women between 15 and 44. Other symptoms may include burning on urination and vaginal itching.
