It depends on many factors, including your age, what part of your cycle you are in, other symptoms or medical conditions, etc. Normal vaginal discharge typically is odorless; an odor indicates that you may have an infection.

"A normal vaginal discharge consists of about a teaspoon (4 ML) a day that is white or transparent, thick to thin, and odorless. The discharge can be more noticeable at different times of the month depending on ovulation, menstrual flow, sexual activity and birth control.

It is not uncommon for the normal discharge to be dark, brown or discolored a day or two following the menstrual period.

If you are having ANY of the symptoms below SEE YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER.

* Pain
* Itching
* Discomfort
* Rash or sores alone or with a vaginal discharge"
