Ever since puberty, I’ve always had a lot of discharge, which I’ve read is normal. But, years later, as of (I want to say) a year and a half ago, maybe 2, my discharge has been coming out white and thick. When I read about thick, white discharge, it can be a little concerning.
I’ve shrugged it off for a while, but now I feel compelled to ask about it. I don’t have any uncomfortable symptoms. No burning or itching, no lower back or abdomen pain. Just white discharge.
I feel like I must ask now because I recently had sex for the first time in years and I experienced some cervix pain whenever he went a little too deep. And after taking the morning after pill a few times, the discharge stopped and was replaced with a clear, stretchy mucous. I’ve read that one of the earliest signs of pregnancy is a milky white discharge, so I’ve been keeping a close eye on it. Suddenly, my thick white discharge is back.
I can’t tell if I should be concerned or not, if the cervix pain was a position and angle issue, or if I have some kind of infection. I plan to see a gynecologist, but if any of you have some kind of light you can shed on this until I’m able to, that would be much appreciated. ♡
Most white discharge without a smell do not need treatment. But with any complaints or ailments it is better to visit a doctor. The nature of the vaginal mucus and the time of its appearance can only give a signal of a problem, but do not help to establish the exact cause of the occurrence.
In your case, there was pain in the cervix during sexual intercourse, which may indicate possible erosion of the cervix.
To begin with, it is enough to have a look at the gynecological chair. After that, the doctor will prescribe a smear. The results of the evaluation of the biological material will determine the course of further investigation. You may need:
- samples of blood and urine;
- ultrasound of the pelvic organs;
- visit the urologist;
- examination of the endocrinologist.
Good luck to you!
