High levels of exercise in girls is not so positive! ...Read more

Hi,: Hi, leukorrhea is cloudy, white or slightly yellow vaginal discharge that is normal in females that have undergone puberty. The thickness or amounts can change at different times (like when a female ovulates or gets pregnant). There can be more if estrogen is out of balance (which can happen when a girl is just starting to get periods). It sounds like your discharge has a mild odor after you have it for a while and is very light yellow. If you have darker colored discharge, it is thick (like cottage cheese) and it has a bad odor, that can be signs of an infection, especially if there are symptoms like vaginal redness, burning, itchiness or pain with urination. ...Read more

Nipple discharge: "galactorrhea" is the production of breast milk. Sometimes women can have nipple discharge that is not milk.
