What causes milky white discharge from my vagina?
  • Best Answer
In the first days of your menstrual cycle, you may experience thin, milky white vaginal discharge. Some people describe this discharge as an “egg white” consistency.

This thinner discharge is a sign that you’re preparing for ovulation. It’s completely normal. As you get closer to your period, the discharge may become thicker and more opaque.

This milky white discharge may also be a sign that you’re pregnant. In the early stages of pregnancy, some people produce a thin, milky white discharge. This discharge results from hormonal changes, which are preparing the body for the nine months of pregnancy.

The discharge can help clear away bacteria, germs, and dirt. It also helps form a mucus plug in the cervix. This keeps the cervix healthy and prevents the spread of bacteria into the uterus during the pregnancy.
You can equally go for HVS to be sure that it's not infection
As long as the milky white discharge does not have an odour, it’s most likely a sign of typical vaginal health. However, if the colour of the discharge develops a white-gray shade and a strong fishy odour, the discharge may be a sign of an infection.

Common symptoms of bacterial vaginosis include milky white and gray discharge with a strong, bad odour.
