What is the cause for small whitish particle from my vagina. I have no other symptoms like itching or white discharge. Its just the small white particles like that of a wet tissue. Could this be a cause for the delay in my periods? I have skipped my periods last month. And I have not had sex so far. So its highly unlikely that I am pregnant. What else could be the cause for these particles? is it some thing to be worried about?

Hi julie4j,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Do you have any other symptoms. 

Discharge accompanied by itching, rash or soreness

  • Persistent, increased discharge
  • Burning on skin during urination
  • White, clumpy discharge (somewhat like cottage cheese)
  • Grey/white or yellow/green discharge with a foul odor
  • Can be a sign of a vaginal infection. It's important then to see your doctor.
