For about a month straight I have experienced white sometimes clumpy discharge almost like a yeast infection but have had no itching or burning or dryness. There is little to no odor and I just got all my test results back NORMAL. So why the persistent random discharge??

Hi Anon

You may have a condition called likoria.

Likora or leukorrhea, which is the medical term, is a thick, whitish vaginal discharge.

It may be normal or may be a sign of infection.

It originates from the vagina, ovaries, fallopian tubes, or, most commonly, the cervix. Leukorrhea may occur during pregnancy and is considered normal when the discharge is thin, white, and relatively odorless.

Physiologic leukorrhea is a normal condition occurring within several months to a year of the onset of menses in adolescent girls and is sometimes present in newborn girls, usually lasting one to two months.

However, in some cases, leukorrhea is a sign of infection, especially when the discharge is yellow or green, has an offensive odor, and is accompanied by irritation, itching, pain, or tissue inflammation.

Since your discharge is clear, there may be no infection but it's a good idea to for you to see a doctor.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

Changes in your body chemistry can happen as the body progresses in life or you reach a different level of sexual maturity.

Some women get this kind of discharge when they ovulate - some all month long. Both are normal, if as you mention, there are no diseases or infections. If you have been very sexually active (without using a condom) in the past month, your discharge will also increase a lot. What goes up, must come down!

Here is more information for you that I think may help: http://www.empowher.com/reproductive-system/content/vaginal-discharge-an...

Best,
