4 Important Features to Observe in Vaginal Discharge


Clear or milk-white color is the normal color of vaginal discharge. In some cases, the discharge appears to be pink or brown color spots. In pregnant women, due to implantation bleeding their discharge appears to be pink. And brown spots are found in the discharge of individuals suffering from irregular menstrual cycles. Under abnormal conditions, the vaginal discharge appears to be green, grey, or yellow. 


The vaginal discharge excreted immediately after menstruation appears to be thin, whereas the discharge excreted during the time of ovulation appears to be thick. These discharge textures are normal and don’t trouble you with any discomfort. 

But if your vaginal discharge is too thick like curd causing itching or irritation, then you must be aware that these symptoms are due to vaginal infections.


Normal vaginal discharge is odorless. But in some cases, a mild odor is sensed but not a foul smell that makes you feel unpleasant. 

If your vagina is infected then you will be able to recognize a deep foul-smelling vaginal discharge making you feel unpleasant.


The quantity of discharge varies from one woman to another. Generally during ovulation, pregnancy, or when birth control pills are used, the vaginal discharge quantity remains high. Apart from these situations if you find a sudden increase in discharge quantity for no reason then the condition is not normal. 

Now you might have a clear view of normal and abnormal conditions of a vaginal discharge. Suppose you find abnormal discharge color, texture, smell, or quantity along with itching, irritation, inflammation, or pain in your vaginal region. In that case, you must immediately consult your doctor and get treated.
