Hi there. Thank you for posting your question. I will do my best to help you.

No, this is by no means normal.
Where is this creamy white discharge coming from I wonder?
Bowel or vagina? Do you feel well in yourself?
Any pain or discomfort, odour?

Tell me more about it and I will try and help you further.

Dr Andrew Rynne.

Thanks for writing in.
The exact cause of the discharge can be determined only when we know whether it is coming from your vagina or your bowels. White discharge from the vagina can occur in several infections. Also, white discharge from the bowels can be due to several conditions including infections, prescribe suitable treatment.
Hope this helps.
