Vaginal discharge is a mixture of liquid, cells, and bacteria that lubricate and protect the vagina. The composition, amount, and quality of discharge varies between individuals and can vary throughout the menstrual cycle and throughout the stages of sexual and reproductive development. Normal vaginal discharge is composed of cervical mucus, vaginal fluid, shedding vaginal and cervical cells, and bacteria. The majority of the liquid in vaginal discharge is mucus produced by glands of the cervix.
