It depends: Are you sexually active? Do you use protection? You need to have regular check ups with your gynocologist. If you have excessive itching it could be a yeast infection. If you have concerns about discharge you need to see your doctor to have this checked. It could also be normal. We all have some discharge sometimes, but make sure you are up to date on your check ups. And use protection.
