Answer: White discharge is normal.  Under some circumstances, you should look out for the consistency and the smell of the discharge. If it is curd-like and thick it could be a fungal infection and you need to visit with your gynaecologist who can prescribe appropriate medications for you. If it is profuse thin watery discharge with a foul smelling odour it could be a bacterial infection. In this case, you also need to consult with your gynaecologist. If there is white discharge that isn't very profuse and is thin and watery this is normal for it is a mechanism in which vagina cleanses itself. You need to wear a panty liner if it is too much. In any situations of burning during urination or itching, you need to consult with your gynaecologist​.
Answer: As you get closer and closer to labor, you may be experiencing a heavier flow of vaginal discharge.This is quite common, so there’s no need to get worried. What you’re likely seeing is leukorrhea, the normal, thick, whitish or yellowish vaginal discharge brought on because of an increase in estrogen and more blood flow to the vaginal area.Right now, there’s nothing you can do to reduce the amount of your vaginal discharge. If you notice an unusual smell or—or if you think you’re leaking amniotic fluid because it’s mostly a thin, clear discharge—call your doctor right away. if the flow gets heavy use panty liners. Keep your vaginal area clean and avoided using scented products.
