Vaginal Discharge: Is It Healthy or Abnormal?


Vaginal discharge is the sticky liquid that releases from the vagina which mostly consists of mucus, discharge and bacteria. A small amount of vaginal discharge reflects the body’s normal cleansing process. The amount and type of vaginal discharge also vary among women and with the woman’s menstrual cycle. A change in vaginal discharge (such as an abnormal odor or color or increases in amount), can signal that an infection is present. Now let’s talk about different types of vaginal discharge.

● Dark brown: It may be dried blood; If it’s a jelly-like consistency, it could be part of your mucus
● Red: Red, bloody discharge can indicate a problem
