Welcome to ehealthforum,
Changes in vaginal discharge consistency, appearance, smell can indicate possibility of vaginal infection. Do not ignore your symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for examination and vaginal swab/smear test to identify causative agent. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated. If you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Avoid having intercourse while being on treatment. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes. Drink plenty of water.
