Vaginal discharge - What you need to know

Dr Louisa Draper

"Abnormal vaginal discharge can be caused by a number of things. If your discharge ever changes suddenly or seems unusual in any way, you should speak to your nurse or doctor."

Dr Louisa Draper

Vaginal discharge is normal and one of the ways the vagina cleans itself. In most cases, vaginal discharge is completely healthy but can sometimes be an indication of infections like thrush, bacterial vaginosis (BV) or an STI.
