What Is That? 5 Common Causes of White Discharge
You go to the Ladies’ Room. It’s all pretty mundane…until you wipe. You say to yourself, “What is that? Why do I have this thick, white discharge?”
Anything out of the ordinary can be scary. But there are some pretty common causes of white discharge.
#1 First, know your body. This could be normal.
The reality is, all women have discharge. It may just be a small bit, and you may not even notice it. In fact, this fluid produced by glands in the vagina and cervix helps fight infection and keep the area clean. Normal discharge is lighter in color, and has virtually no smell. So breathe easy about this kind of discharge.
