vaginal discharge

Vaginal discharge is the secretions from the vagina. Normal discharge may appear clear, cloudy white, and/or yellowish when dry on clothing. It may also contain white flecks and at times may be thin and stringy. A normal discharge usually does not smell unusual. Changes in normal discharge can occur for many reasons, including menstrual cycle, stress, nutrition, pregnancy, usage of medication (including birth control pills), and sexual arousal.
