Vaginal discharge is one of those bodily issues we don’t like to discuss (or perhaps even think about), but it is also an important health indicator.

And because we don’t really talk about it, vaginal discharge can be confusing and even scary.

So let’s get up close and personal and learn what our vaginal discharge might be trying to tell us.

Ready to be more acquainted with your vagina?2

1. Gray/Fishy Smelling

If your vaginal discharge is grayish and noticeably fishier smelling after sex then it is most likely to be a vaginal infection such as bacterial vaginosis.

This is a very common infection that occurs when your vagina’s pH balance is not quite right or there is a higher than normal level of β€˜bad bacteria’ down there.

It can also be caused by a new partner not being so clean due to unprotected sex.

BV usually goes away on its own but you can be prescribed medication by your doctor if it’s really worrying you.

2. White/Clumpy

This type of discharge will be a creamy white color and clumpy or chunky in texture, but will have no highly noticeable odor.2

You may also be feeling a degree of discomfort, itchiness and swelling.

It is most likely in this case that you have a yeast infection, one of the most common vaginal issues there is.

They can be prevented by eating healthy bacteria such as yogurt but should be treated with pills or creams right away;

over the counter medication should suffice.

3. Clear/No Odor

If you have noticed some discharge that is clear in color and very elastic, almost like raw egg whites, then you have absolutely nothing to be worried about!3

This kind of discharge occurs when we are in the process of ovulating, and the elastic nature of the discharge is designed to trap sperm and help it find its way to the uterus.

Impressive stuff!

However, if there is an excess of discharge and it is bothering you, you can always wear a panty liner.
