Many possibilities: Many things cause ncreased vaginal discharge; you don't give enough information to even guess. Hormonal issues, pregnancy, and infections are the main causes -- some of the infections are minor, others more serious. STDs are a possibility if at risk. Itching, odor, and other symptoms can give clues. Any new or unexplained vaginal discharge needs professional diagnosis. See your doctor soon.
