Vaginal Health - Overview

A healthy vagina will produce around 700ml of mucus discharge every month, which can differ in appearance and consistency throughout a woman's monthly cycle. At the beginning and end of a woman's cycle there will be a small amount of mucus, which is creamy or milky in colour. When a woman is ovulating then the mucus become transparent and malleable. The discharge should always have a neutral smell and mucus that has a strong smell may indicate a health problem.
