Vagina Discharge
Is Watery Vaginal Mucus Normal?

It is normal for women of childbearing age to have vagina discharge. In Asian communities it is often referred to as "white discharge". It begins from the onset of puberty and ends after menopause.

Your discharge can be clear or milky, white and odorless. When the white vaginal discharge is exposed to air, it leaves a white or slightly yellow patch on the panties.

Functions of watery vaginal discharge:-

  1. It keeps your vagina clean and healthy. The secretions help to remove dead cells, mucus and bacteria from the vagina. You don't have to do much when it comes to maintenance. Douching is not necessary.
  2. The acidic pH of the discharge prevent the over population of yeast in the vagina. Therefore, white discharge acts as a shield against infections in the vagina and uterus.
  3. This clear discharge provides lubrication during intercourse and makes sex pleasurable.
