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! ...Read more

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

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

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

Endometriosis: Endometriosis makes it harder to get pregnant but it is still possible. Seeing an obgyn who is knowledgeable in this field will help. Thick discharge has little to do with endometriosis in my opinion but warrants to be checked for infection. ...Read more

Extremely thick white discharge a week before my period was due, it wasn't clear but sticky. Three days later I had brown spotting.

Infection? STD?: Any new, abnormal, or unexplained vaginal discharge should be professionally examined. Thick and white suggests infection, which also can cause spotting between periods. At age 21, STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, or trichomonas are among the most common causes, so get it checked out ASAP. Your local NHS GUM clinic would be an excellent source for expert, lifestyle-sensitive care. Good luck! ...Read more

Needs testing: Vaginal discharge requires an examination to determine the cause and treatment. Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause and often has a vaginal odor. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. Testing is important to determine the treatment and keep you and your partner safe. ...Read more
