A bit of white discharge, especially at the beginning or end of your menstrual cycle, is normal. However, if the discharge is accompanied by itching and has a thick, cottage cheese-like consistency or appearance, it’s not normal and needs treatment. This type of discharge may be a sign of a yeast infection.

If you’ve used over the counter treatment, see your GP to confirm no infection present. If treatment was prescribed by your GP, and the problem persists, make an appointment to discuss it further.

I'm extremely prone to yeast infections, so I automatically panic when my discharge starts to look unusual. But as long as you don't have any itching/burning, that's probably just your normal discharge. If things ever seem a little bit "off" down there, try a boric acid suppository. I do one each month after my period is over just to rebalance things and I haven't had a yeast infection since I started using the boric acid.
