12.4.3  Vaginal discharge

Discharge is the wetness all women have from the vagina. A woman’s body uses this discharge to clean itself from the inside. For most women, the discharge changes during their monthly cycle. Pregnant women often have a lot of discharge, especially near the end of pregnancy. It may be clear or yellowish. This is normal. However, the discharge can be a sign of an infection if it is white, grey, green, lumpy, or has a bad smell, or if the vagina itches or burns.

You should refer all suspected cases of vaginal infection to the nearest health facility.
