A normal discharge can be clear or white and amounts to about a teaspoon a day. You can have a thicker white discharge at the beginning and end of your cycle. But you should not be itchy or smell an odor which could indicate a yeast infection.


If it continues and is a substantial change for what you had been having, you can see your doctor for an exam and ask them about your worries. If it becomes itchy, or there is an odor, or you have a white, cottage cheese type discharge you should see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment.


Here is some information for you.
