Vaginal discharge: What you describe can be a vaginal yeast infection. First try over the counter yeast remedies (ask your pharmacist to recommend one) and if that does not work in a few days, see a gyn provider for an exam and treatment. It may be another kind of vaginal infection, but yeast (fungus) is the most common.
