Dr. should evaluate: A discharge is anything coming from the vagina that is more than the scant amount of normal mucous healthy women have. A discharge that has mild or no odor can still be an overgrowth of yeast or bacteria, or a mild infection with undesirable germs (discharges worsen as infections worsen). A teen with discharge can see a dr. Who does pelvic exams, even if a pelvic exam isn't done on the first visit.

Vaginal DC varies: The normal amount of vaginal discharge varies from woman to woman. The quantity may be perfectly normal, but should be addressed by her doctor. I am curious to know who thinks it is 'excessive'? Does it vary with her cycle? Any itching or burning?
