Is it normal to have creamy white discharge 2 days before you supposed to get your period?

Vaginal discharge: Vaginal discharge can be very worrisome sometimes. By what you described it could be a simple vaginitis or candidiasis. Also a normal cervical mucous its sometimes seen before a period. Patients your age must rule out cervical cancer and ovarian or fallopian tubes disease. Those can also have abnormal vaginal secretions. Most commonly its just due to hormonal changes right before your period.

White discharge the day your period supposed to come. What could it be?

Sexually active? If: Yes - take a pregnancy test. When pregnant, vaginal discharge is thin, white ; milky. But because this is not a diagnostic symptom, a pregnancy test should be taken if you miss your period.

Am trying for a baby I have had creamy white discharge today 14 days after my period 9th march am I fertile/ovulating is this the best day for sex?

Am trying for a baby I have had creamy white discharge today 14 days after my period 9th march am I fertile/ovulating is this the best day for sex?

Probably: If your cycle is regular, than you would most likely be ovulating around this time (mid cycle-you ovulate 14 days before your period), so having sex as often as possible in the next few days would be optimal for trying to get pregnant. Best wishes.

Period came on 8/24 went off 8/27 8/28 had unprotected sex What is creamy white discharge got it 5 day after my period I never had this after period

Sounds like possible: Yeast infection. Be seen and have cultures done for a diagnosis. Unprotected sex will result in pregnancy and potentially infection. Be safe and all the best.

What causes women to get thick creamy white discharge 1 week before period is due?

What causes women to get thick creamy white discharge 1 week before period is due?

Discharge is normal: It's normal for a woman to have discharge every day. Discharge typically changes in consistency through cycle based on changes in hormones. So long as discharge doesn't itch or smell fishy, it's okay. Sometimes when women have copious amount of discharge it can be a sign of a bacterial infection. If you're worried, see doc for check up!

Missed period with thick creamy white discharge?

Missed period with thick creamy white discharge?

Missed Period: There are at least a dozen common reasons for missed period, but the most common is pregnancy. If you have not done a pregnancy test then that is the next indicated thing. The vaginal discharge is not in any way diagnostic of anything specific.

Thick creamy white discharge 1.5 weeks before period. No itching/discomfort?

Probably normal: The nature and volume of the vaginal discharge will vary through the cycle. At the time of ovulation the discharge becomes thinner and the volume increases. At the point you note - you would have already ovulated and you may be seeing the inherent increase in discharge. After a few more days the discharge will usually decrease - as the time for the period approaches.

4 days after period, having high volume of creamy white discharge. No odor or itching. Cause?

4 days after period, having high volume of creamy white discharge. No odor or itching. Cause?

Candida (yeast)?: Your symptoms resemble yeast infection, also called candida and monilia. Are you near your period? Have you been taking antibiotics? Do you have diabetes or high blood glucose ("sugar")? These factors can increase the chance for candida. This infection can improve with over-the-counter vagina creams or tablets. If no improvement, then see your medical provider. Hope that helps.

I was supposed to start my period today but didn't because I'm all messed up from my BC pill. But I just got so much white discharge out of nowhere?

I was supposed to start my period today but didn't because I'm all messed up from my BC pill. But I just got so much white discharge out of nowhere?

Messed up?: I'm not certain in what way you are messed up from your pills. Are you taking them at the same time every day? In that case your period may be light/late because of the low hormone level in the pill. If you mean you haven't been taking them right, you could be pregnant and need to do a pregnancy test. The discharge could be hormonal or could be due to a vaginal infection.Sorry I can't be more sure

Started period on jan19 had sex 31 came inside me. Just now Having creamy white discharge. Chance of preg?

Sperm + ova = preg: Hello Bailey, There is always a chance of pregnancy when having unprotected sex. We like to think that ovulation occurs at the same time each month but ovulation is influenced by a number of factors such as hormones, medications, stress and on and on. Day 12 of your cycle is very close to the times that we recommend having sex to increase chances of pregnancy.
