Our expert says:
This is likely to not be normal since the flow that usually comes from the vagina in small quantities is clear or milky with no odor. Cottage-cheese-like flow may be indicative of thrush, a condition caused by an overgrowth of inherent bacteria. It is usually accompanied by soreness and irritation. Thick white vaginal discharge can indicate abnormalities. I suggest that you seek professional assistance from a gynecologist or your medical doctor to determine the cause. It might be something that could be dealt with easily and remove your feelings of embarrassment.
