Infection & hormones: Some vaginal discharge can be normal. As you go through the month your hormones cause changes in the discharge. In some cases though discharge can be a sign of infection. Causes incluse yeast, bacterial vaginosis, and stds. There are tests that can be done in the office to determine if this is normal or not. If you are not sexually active and there is no odor or itching then you are likely normal.
