Things you must know about discharge per vagina

It may be a sign of something abnormal! 

Vaginal discharge serves an important housekeeping function in the female reproductive system. Fluid made by glands inside the vagina and cervix carries away dead cells and bacteria. This keeps the vagina clean and helps prevent infection. 

Most of the time, vaginal discharge is perfectly normal. The amount can vary, as can odor and color (which can range from clear to a milky whitish), depending on the time in menstrual cycle. For example, there will be more discharge during ovulation, breastfeeding, or during sexual arousal. (urticaria homeopathic medicine)

None of those changes is cause for alarm. However, if the color, smell, or consistency seems quite different than usual, especially if there is vaginal itching or burning, it may be an infection or other condition (homeopathy hospital near me).


Any change in the vagina’s balance of normal bacteria can affect the smell, color, texture of discharge. 

• Yellow, grey or green: Yellow, grey or green discharge may suggest a bacterial or sexually transmitted infection (STI). 

• Brown or red: Brown or red discharge is usually related to irregular menstruation or pregnancy (implantation bleeding). 

• Clear or white: Normal vaginal discharge is clear, white or offwhite. If your discharge is white, but seems thicker than usual or causes itching, it may be a yeast infection (how to cure urticaria permanently).
