So for the past week I have noticed a Thick-ish White discharge every so often. Which I never notice on my panties or anything. Just if I actually looking down there I will notice it like making it's way out so to say. It has no smell to it at all, just my normal scent. I don't itch there or anything and have not been sexually active lately. I know I'm clean. I just haven't had this problem before. What in the world could it be?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Altered vaginal discharge appearance or consistency could be indicative of vaginal infection. Do not ignore your symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for examination and vaginal swab/smear test to look for causative agent. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated by the examination findings and investigation results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Avoid leaving Tampons inside for long periods of time, change them at regular intervals. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation in the area. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
