What's coming out of your body is a pretty good indicator of what's happening inside your body, and the same is true for your vagina. Whether you're experiencing white vaginal discharge, yellow discharge, slippery discharge, or a thick or smelly discharge, it can tell you a lot about what's going on down there. While most changes in vaginal discharge and smell are normal, others can signify anything from an STD to whether you just need to drink more water.

Clear or white fluid that comes out of the vagina is called vaginal discharge also known as leukorrhea. This discharge contains mucus that is normally produced by glands in the cervix and the walls of the vagina. When exposed to air, the discharge may turn white or yellow.
