Clear or white: A normal vaginal discharge will vary in appearance, consistancy, and volume during the menstrual cycle. Near ovulation the discharge is usually clear, with an increase in volume, thin and watery. At the end of the cycle it usually becomes thicker and sticky, with less volume. A discolored discharge, or one that is clumpy, or with a foul odor is not normal.
