Is Discharge Normal?
It’s completely normal for you to produce clear or white discharge. The glands in your cervix produce a natural lubricant that keeps your vagina moist. This natural lubricant travels down your vagina, helping to maintain a clean and healthy environment. Simply put, discharge is your vagina’s natural way of cleaning itself and it is a sign you have a healthy vagina.
However, your discharge should not be smelly or make you itchy or sore. Additionally, if it changes colour it could be a sign you have an infection and you may need to see your doctor. Everyone is different, so you may produce more or less discharge than other women. You may also produce different amounts of discharge depending on where you are in your menstrual cycle. For example, before your period you may get more discharge than normal and it may be thicker in consistency.
