Female discharge may indicate problems

The field of women's health is delicate and very important. Girls are usually embarrassed to ask questions about their body features and puberty. In the future, this can lead to an inability to seek help in time. For example, not all women know that vaginal discharge is usually normal, but some of it may indicate inflammatory or infectious diseases.

Female discharge consists of water, mucus, normal bacteria and cells in the vagina and cervix. Jessica V. Keeley, MD, told Northwestern Medicine what can affect the nature of the discharge and how to avoid missing a pathological process.

Normal female discharge is necessary because it cleanses and moisturises the vagina, protecting against infections. In different women, it can be thick or thin, white or clear, and range from 1 to 4 ml per day.

The nature of the discharge may vary depending on the day of the menstrual cycle or when taking contraceptives. However, you should pay special attention to some changes, as they can be pathological.

In this case, they are caused by inflammation, disruption of the normal microflora, or even sexually transmitted infections. Jessica V. Keeley advises that you should definitely see a doctor if you have the following complaints along with a change in the nature of your discharge:

Itching of the vagina and the area around it;

Redness, pain and swelling;

Foamy green-yellow or bloody discharge;

Unpleasant smell of the discharge;

Pain during urination or sexual intercourse;


Lower abdominal pain or pelvic pain.

The doctor assures that in most cases, these symptoms are easily treatable with medication, but it should be under the supervision of specialists.
