It’s normal and healthy to have some discharge from your vagina. The amount and consistency of this discharge can change during your menstrual cycle, as you get older, if you take the contraceptive pill or if you get pregnant. But an abnormal unexplained change in your vaginal discharge with symptoms like itching, thick curdy or thin, frothy discharg, and or foul-smelling discharge, can be a sign of an infection.
Vaginal Yeast Infection
A vaginal yeast infection, also known as candidiasis, is common. A healthy vagina contains bacteria and some yeast cells. But when the balance of bacteria and yeast changes, the yeast cells can multiply. This causes itching, swelling, curdy thick discharge, and irritation. Treating a vaginal yeast infection can relieve symptoms within a few days.
Gonorrhea is an STI caused by bacteria. You may not get any symptoms, but if you do, they’ll usually appear within 10 days of getting infected. You may have more vaginal discharge than normal, and pain around your lower abdomen. It might hurt when you pass urine (pee).
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is an infection caused by an overgrowth of harmful bacteria in your vagina. It’s the most common type of vaginal infection. Around half of the people who get it don’t have any symptoms, but you’ll usually have a thin grey or white, fishy-smelling vaginal discharge if you do. You won’t usually have any soreness, itching, or irritation with this infection.
