Thanks for your question and for looking out for your friend! This kind of discharge is to be expected in women.

This excellent article by HerWriter Alison Beaver explains it all very well: http://www.empowher.com/reproductive-system/content/vaginal-discharge-and-cervical-mucus-frequently-asked-questions

A mild scent is normal. If the scent is bad, she needs to be checked by the doctor for an infection. I hope this information helps her and do encourage her to join EmpowHER so we can help her directly!

Thank you for writing!
