Over the last few weeks, i have begun to have a clear odorless vaginal discharge. It seems to be getting excessive. I am wearing a panty liner during the day and at night a full pad. I have no other symptoms so this is very perplexing....

Brief Answer:
Can be due to hormonal change.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.

A sudden increase in vaginal discharge that is odorless is less likely to be due to an infection. This can be related to hormonal changes during the cycle. Such discharge usually decreases on its own in 5-7 days.

In case the discharge is persistent then a vaginal swab culture analysis is needed to rule out an infection.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow-up queries that you have.

Wishing you good health.
