Is white discharge normal in the 3rd trimester?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Amy Herold
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes: Vaginal discharge changes in the 3rd trimester. It can get thick and white or thin and watery. White discharge is usually normal, however, if it is clumpy or accompanied by itching, pain, or a fishy odor it may be a sign of a yeast or bacterial infection.
