cure for milky white discharge?

I know milky white discharge is normal, but I've been having this problem for years.
I have done online searches, I have to wear a pad almost every day (sometimes a regular pad, not just a mini) because I think it's unhealthy to wear a tampon 24/7 every single day of the year. There is no smell, or it smells like normal discharge. The doctors never believe how much it is. They think it is an infection, but when tested its not the case. I have changed my diet and do not drink alcohol and there is no change. In fact it has gotten worse over the years. I have endometriosis. Very frustrating and almost to the point of going crazy over this by this point! I wish I could find something that could help....is there any medication or home remedies I could try to stop this problem.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Vaginal discharge serves an important housekeeping function in the female reproductive system. Fluid made by glands inside the vagina and cervix carries away dead cells and bacteria. This keeps the vagina clean and helps prevent infection.

Most of the time, vaginal discharge is perfectly normal. The amount can vary, having alot of discharge, might be normal for your body.  Since you have had this problem for years.  You need to discuss this with your OBGYN and let him know how you feel about this and what are your options in treating this kind of problem.
