Discharge changes : Thanks for asking. Discharge from the vagina changes throughout the month. While you are ovulating it's thinner to accept sperm and after ovulation or usually the week before your period it thickens up to provide protection for a potential pregnancy. As long as it does't itch, burn or smell it's and resolves on it's own you are likely having normal changes.
