Q: A lot of white vaginal discharge with no odor.

I am sexually active (unprotected) with one person. I should be getting my period in about seven days or so, and I've noticed I have a lot of white vaginal discharge with no odor. I might have not noticed this before and I could be overeacting, but I just need some peace of mind.  Any ideas as to what this is?

Hi there 

I will just add to Paul's very good suggestions with...the first thing that comes to mind (know that I am not a doctor) when you say white discharge is perhaps a yeast infection.  Are you itchy or sore?  It also just might be normal vaginal discharge.  If you are concerned you can always consult with your gynecologist to make sure. 

Thank you for your question.

This article explains different types of vaginal discharges and says that normal discharge is clear or white. I think it also says that the discharge averages about a teaspoon a day, although it can be significantly more at various times.

 

It's hard to judge what one particular individual is experiencing. If you are thinking pregnancy, certainly that is always possible with unprotected sex, all you can do is if your normal period is ever late by more than week, take a home pregnancy test, or be tested by a doctor. If after you read that article, you still have worries, or this is so abnormal from your regular cycle, then you should make an appointment to discuss this with your doctor.
