Hi Mrs.Sakina,
Thank you for opting to post your queries and to give us this opportunity to clarify your doubts.
Well, Mrs.Sakina, first of all let me ask you, hows your baby doing? Hope the baby is feeding well, gaining weight adequately and developing normally for a 7 month old child.
Well, about your whittish discharge, it can be some sort of a vulvovaginitis (i.e. infecton) or might be just a normal vaginal discharge. But since you have a history of vaginal infections, I would recommend you to see your gynaecologist and get some tests done as per her advise.
In any case, I would recommend you to breastfeed your baby along with the weaning foods which I hope you must have already started since the 6th month.
I hope I have been successful in clarifying your doubts. Take care and stay healthy.

Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is unlikely that the vaginal discharge is related to the headache that you are experiencing.
A white discharge is usually as a result of a yeast infection and can be treated with topical medication.
In terms of the headache , the most common causes of headache are tension headache, migraine, sinus headache.
In the case of a person experiencing what they may call the worse headache they have ever experienced, it is best to be assessed to rule out other more serious causes of headache.

i hope this helps
