Depending on the day of her cycle, a woman may notice a discharge which characterizes that time. If the discharge changes its typical colour or smell, this may suggest vaginal discharge. How to distinguish between the correct and incorrect discharge?                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Transparent or whitish discharge in the first half of the cycle, practically smell-free or with a slight scent is the correct discharge.  Its volume increases during ovulation.  During the first days of ovulation, you may observe an increased  amount of mucus with an egg white’s consistency.  The mucus’ role is to make it easier for the spermatozoa to travel and as a result, lead to impregnation.  In the last days of ovulation, the mucus thickens and becomes stickier.  This confirms the end of fertile days as thick mucus makes it more difficult for the spermatozoa to move.  Towards the end of the cycle, that is just before the menstruation, a thick, whitish or lumpy mucus may also appear.             However, if the mucus is abundant, accompanied by pain or vulva swelling, this may suggest an allergy.  In such event, the use of perfumed hygienic products should be stopped and ecological washing powders used for washing.  Change to the mucus’ colour and smell may suggest vaginal discharge.  Vaginal discharge usually signals a vaginal infection and the basis of its appearance we may recognize which infection we are dealing with. White and thick vaginal discharge, often compared to the consistency of cottage cheese, may suggest yeast infection i.e. vaginal thrush.  It is accompanied by itching and swelling and burning.  It is worth contacting the doctor asap.  The second type of discharge which may also suggest the vaginal thrush is a vaginal discharge which is abundant and runny, almost watery. Grey and abundant vaginal discharge with an unpleasant, fishy smell which might intensify after intercourse are the symptoms of a bacterial vaginal infection, the so-called vaginosis, and its treatment requires antibiotics.  Consult the doctor asap.  Yellow, abundant and foamy vaginal discharge may suggest an infection with trichomonas which suggests that the parasite called trichomonas vaginalis appeared in the vagina. It is then necessary to visit the doctor. Mucous suppurative vaginal discharge may suggest chlamydia which is an infection with chlamydia trachomatis. One of the symptoms of chlamydia is the burning sensation during urination. It is necessary to see the doctor.
