Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

A thick white discharge is normally seen at the time of ovulation. Though pregnancy too causes a white discharge, it is difficult to comment on that before you miss the period. Thick white discharge with itchiness and swelling could be a yeast infection or candida infection. This would need treatment with both, oral antifungal taken once a week for 4 weeks or more and local antifungal application.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
