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 or other underlying conditions affecting the vagina, cervix (neck of the womb), womb or ovaries.
