What causes white vaginal discharge?

Posted on Tue, 17 Mar 2015 in Women's Health
Question: I am experiencing white discharge lately. It is white in color and most of the times odorless. Amount of discharge is not too high, just that I feel wet.
Previously I used to experience it once in a while, but very little and I thought it is normal.
From a month it is happening almost everyday. This happens more when I meet my boyfriend, just a talk about kiss or hug would start it.
I have not consulted any doctor yet. I have read somewhere that this is common, but just want to make sure all is well and avoid this from happening.
Could you tell me if it is normal? If not can you suggest some medication to prevent this..

Brief Answer:
This is normal. Dont worry

Detailed Answer:

I read your query and I understand your concerns about white discharge.

Following is my reply:

1) White discharge you experience when you are sexually excited ( as in talk about kissing boyfriend and meeting).

2) This is normal mucous discharge and nothing to worry as this is normal response to stimulation.

3) You don't need any treatment as this is not a disease.

4) Stay relaxed and don't think about it anymore.

Let me know if you have anymore questions.

Thanks for the quick response.
I feel relaxed to know that it is normal. However I would like to know if I can prevent it. I don't like that wet feeling, I feel unclean. Can you suggest something?
