Question: white discharge no itch or smell

 bbf2408 - Mon Nov 02, 2009 2:52 pm

I have seen quite a few posts on this but none have any solid answers.

I have been having light non cottage cheese like discharge, looks more like wet toilet paper. No itch or smell, I have had some mild cramping and im only on my second week for this packet of Microgestin so i am not close to my period yet. I would go to my GYN but my new health insurance doesnt kick in till January 2010.

User avatar Hello,
Almost all women have some discharge and white (leukorrhea) is quite normal and common. The amount and thickness may vary when ovulating and many women just manage it with the use of pantiliners (this is why they are such big sellers). However, it can be a sign of infection even without other symptoms so it wouldn't hurt to check it out to be sure when you have insurance. There is no rush here if it is not itchy, burning, or smelly.

Best wishes.
