Milky discharge: A couple of days before ovulation, there is a clear mucous discharge. After ovulation, discharge changes to a milky color, but is usually pretty light. There should be no odor or itching. If there is, you may have an infection.

Nothing: An increased mucousy vaginal discharge is not necessarily abnormal. Estrogen levels are increasing beginning at this point in the cycle and might explain your symptoms.
