I recently had cystitis. When my period came I felt pain after urinating (not while) which lasted for an hour or so. Then it went away. Now I have a whitish vaginal discharge which is thick. It does not itch, burn or smell. Is it possible that this is normal vaginal discharge or not? And the pain after urination is still here. Is it possible that I have some kind of an infection which is not a UTI but something vaginal instead which is causing the burning after peeing?

I am having a watery yellowish discharge that is constant out of my vagina . I am having lower abdomen pain. My vagina itches and has red spots that look like irritation. It burns when soap and water touches it. When the discharge stays on my panties it looks white and sticky nd sometimes dries into a hard substance. I have been sexually active fer the first time in a few days ago, my bf only used a condom fer da first minute of it and then took it off but his penis only penetrated me a little it did not go all up. He came on top of my vagina and it got all over it but i wiped it off. I also have been having oral sex with him from a few days before and i have been doin oral sex wit my past ex also ...what cud be the problem? Im really worried

I have white, milky, and thin vaginal discharge. I keep track of where I am on my cycle as well. I am about 12 days past ovulation. I thought that discharge like this was normal, but I thought it was really only normal to have this type of discharge right before ovulation. This discharge has been the same all month besides the 5 days I was on my period; which was Jan. 29th- feb. 2nd. I have been sexually active though as well, is there any possibility I may be pregnant? We only used the withdrawl method. I have been experiencing some weight gain(mostly blosting), and some light cramps.
