Normal vaginal discharge has several purposes: cleaning and moistening the vagina, and helping to prevent and fight infections. It's normal for the color.
Different colours of vaginal discharge and what they mean - Dr. Tanaya aka Dr. Cuterus explains
Some women have discharge every day, while others experience it less frequently. Normal vaginal discharge is usually clear or milky and may have a subtle scent.
However, if you are experiencing yellow-white discharge, it is possible you have an infection. Infection after menopause is common, as the vagina doesn't. Most healthy vaginas have yeast. But sometimes your yeast grows too much leading to an infection. Yeast infections can be very irritating and uncomfortable.
If thick, white discharge goes along with other symptoms, such as itching, burning and irritation, it is probably due to a yeast infection. If not, it is normal. After menopause, many women have an abnormal discharge. It occurs because the decrease in estrogen levels causes the vagina to thin and become drier. White — Thick, white discharge is common at the beginning and end of your cycle. · Clear and stretchy — This is “fertile” mucous and means you're ovulating.
