User :   Hello doctor,
I am a 18 year old girl that is not sexually active. I have white cottage cheese discharge in my vagina that i try to get out in the shower. I get really wet sometimes and it is very embarrasing. I get a odor that smells like pi after my basketball games or any hard core physical activity.

Please help
