Not all vaginal discharge is abnormal. The cervix is a gland that constantly produces mucus. The quantity and quality of the mucus changes with pregnancy. This mucus or discharge acutally prevents infections. Abnormal discharges cause burning or itching or have a foul, fishy odor. Antibiotics, douching, and tampons are some of the things that can alter the pH and lead to vaginal infections.
