The vagina: What's normal and what's not.
A healthy vagina produces discharge to protect it against harmful bacteria. It's normal to see more discharge at the middle and end of your monthly cycle, or while you're pregnant. Normal discharge is clear or cloudy, has a mild odor and doesn't itch or burn. In an infected vagina, the discharge often increases and thickens. The color may be white or greenish-gray, with an unpleasant odor. Itching, burning or swelling may also occur.

Vaginal infections:
There are three main types of vaginal infections or vaginitis:

Bacterial vaginosis: A bacterial infection is caused by one or more types of harmful bacteria. Its cause is unknown. The infection may be passed on sexually.
Symptoms: Watery and grayish discharge; unpleasant or fishy odor; vaginal itching, burning or swelling; and discomfort or pain during urination or sexual intercourse.

Trich" (trichomoniasis): Caused by a one-celled organism, trichomonas, it is usually passed from one person to another through sexual intercourse.
Symptoms: Foamy, gray or yellow-green discharge; unpleasant odor; intense vaginal itching, burning or
swelling; and discomfort or pain during urination or sexual intercourse.

Yeast (candida or monilia): A yeast infection is an over-growth of yeast fungus due to changes in hormone levels or blood sugar, or lowered resistance to infection. It often occurs with pregnancy, diabetes, high stress or use of antibiotics or birth control pills.
Symptoms: White, clumpy discharge; slight odor; severe vaginal itching or burning; and discomfort or pain during urination or sexual intercourse.
