Patient: Periodically I have a clear vaginal discharge which seems rather heavy at times….what is this??
Doctor: Vaginal discharge that is clear and non foul smelling is usually a normal vaginal discharge. This occurs at different ti mes of your cycle and can be particularly heavy after exercising. An irritation of change in the smell of the discharge could indicate bacterial vaginosis is requires further evaluation. I recommend visiting a doctor anytime your discharge is different from usual. Antibiotics like metronidazole and clindamycin are affective in bacterial vaginosis.
