Ok well this morning i go use the restroom and everything seemed fine until i took a look down there. Once i looked i noticed a thick cottage cheese like discharge, not in my underwear, nor does it have a foul odor and there is no itiching like a usual yeast infection. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Have you recently been sexually active? It could be a BV infection and that usually gives off an odor during sex.

    To be honest, I feel like from the moment you hit puberty to your mid 20s, discharge seems to be all over the place in the amount, smell, color, texture. I think it just has to do w a lot of hormonal changes in those years.

      Well you're not itching, so I don't think that is necessary. I do recall when I was younger, getting discharge like that. Was tour period not too long ago or are you more than 14 days before your period? I'm willing to bet it is hormonal related. I notice that girls all the way up till late 20, dem to be more prone to infections. Take a daily probiotic w live culture if you can and that will regulate your pH balance and limit your infections.

    I'd guess that though this is a UK website you are in US.   If by any chance you can access the UK TV program "Embarassing Bodies" on catch up there was an excellent programme last night on STIs where it showed the different types of discharge!  "Cottage Cheese" suggests thrush but then I'm told you itch like crazy!

    Hi trice sounds like a classics yeast infection but you might want to see your Dr and check it out. If you have sex doing this time it can be passed to your partner. It's not a STD and any number of things can cause them. When I was younger taking a bath n just sitting in the tube use to cause them in me I was a teenager at the time. Hope this helps☺️
