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.

Probably: It sounds like you are looking at normal changes occuring during your cycle and blowing them out of proportion. Consider keeping a menstrual calendar and record all of your symptoms to give you a better idea of what is normal for you. If you are still concerned, that record will also be useful to your doctor. ...Read more
