Brief Answer: MOSTLY PHYSIOLOGICAL. NEED VAGINAL SWAB TEST. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. According to above clinical presentation, I can assume that vaginal discharge (white) after period is quite physiological as it is very light and continues up to the ovulation time. Hormonal imbalance and mental stress can cause irregular period bleeding. However, your ultrasound scan is normal. White discharge occurs due to high level of endogenous estrogen which causes secretion of the endocervical gland & superficial vaginal epithelium. It is mostly mucoid in nature and small in amount. Therefore, you don't have to worry much. Other least possible causes could be Sexual excitement, Cervicitis, Ectropion (cervical glands exposed to vagina), inserting foreign body inside vagina, using contraceptive pill, Ill health etc. Here, I suggest you to undergo one pelvic examination and vaginal swab test with culture to rule out causative agent (if any) and pinpoint the diagnosis. Kindly, consult with your gynecologist for proper guidance. Some general measures can improve your present condition like: 1) Take healthy diet with more protein, green vegetables and IRON supplements. 2) Drink more water for better systemic circulation and to eliminate body toxin. 3) Avoid mental stress or depression by regular meditation or yoga (15 to 30 min). 4) Do regular mild to moderate exercise or 1 hr walking to reduce or control body weight. 5) Maintain genital hygiene properly and avoid insertion of foreign body or any other bath cosmetics.
