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.

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. ...Read more

See your doctor: Discharge is probably a yeast infection. Are you late for your period? Probably best to do a pregnancy test as well. ...Read more

Discharge: Thick creamy discharge doesn't mean you are pregnant. Vaginal discharge is not considered a pregnancy symptom. Pregnancy would be more probable if you were to miss your next period. Period on march, 17 doesn't necessarily mean you are due yet, as it depends on the length of your cycle. If your cycle length is 28 days, it may come tomorrow or the day after. If > 28 days, wait until you are "due". ...Read more

Anovulation: Most likely a cycle where the ovary fails to let loose an egg. These self-normalize. To be safe, take a home pregnancy test. If it persists, see your doctor. ...Read more
