White dischage is completely normal in a women. Women experience this all throughout the day. When the discharge turns to a clear color, that means you are ovulating. You only need to worry if it has a yellow or green color which could mean an infection.

White discharge is usually normal, and is often seen during non-fertile times in a woman's cycle. If it is tinged green, smells bad, or is accompanied by pain or irritation, it could be related to an infection.

A white vaginal discharge usually means a yeast infection. A discharge may be a sign of a sexually transmitted disease. You may have some type of infection. It's normal to have some discharge and the amount differs from one woman to another. If you have any other symptoms or it gets worse, see your doctor.
