Normal is a range: Vaginal discharge can often be normal. The vagina has normal secretions to keep it moist. The amount of discharge can be affected by hormones (both birth control and our normal hormones), prescription and OTC medications, etc. You should be seen by your doctor if you are having discharge that is colored, foul or fishy smelling, cloudy, or if you are having any other vaginal or pelvic symptoms.
