Discharge is generally the fluid that comes out of a vagina. Discharge is completely normal, it’s what keeps the vagina clean. It’s totally normal for consistency and thickness of discharge to change throughout the menstrual cycle. Discharge doesn’t just relate to women, it could also mean the fluid from a penis – this isn’t semen or urine, and is also perfectly ok.

If your discharge is a different colour to usual or starts to smell, don’t be afraid, just get it checked out by your doctor or book an appointment at your local Family Planning Clinic.
