Hello. : Hello. Normal vaginal secretions are clear to white / creamy. The viscosity can change depending on when you ovulate, become pregnant etc. White discharge is leukorrhea which is made up of things like dead cells, dead white cells and normal secretions. It can turn slightly yellow when it dries in your underwear. Green or dark yellow, clumpy or malodorous discharge may be abnormal. If that were the case, would get it checked - especially if there is redness, swelling, itching or pain. Take care.

Supportive ring: Rectocele occurs when pelvic floor muscle lose support; rectum, usually uterus, maybe bladder sag. Pessary is a ring inserted into vagina to help keep things up and perky (kind of like a vaginal truss). This helps keep the rectum straight (as name implies), and lets it do its job of evacuating stool out, not bulge into vaginal vault.
