“Most women have an increase in vaginal discharge a few days prior to their period,” says Kecia Gaither, MD, a double board-certified OB/GYN and director of perinatal services at NYC Health. “This is due to hormonal effects which cause an increase in mucus production in the vagina.” White discharge usually occurs at the beginning and end of your menstrual cycle. When you notice a thick white discharge, it’s typically a sign that you are about to ovulate. When you are ovulating, you will also notice a clear and stretchy discharge. Ovulation is the stage of your menstrual cycle where an egg is released from your ovary. This is when you are most fertile and most likely to get pregnant. You might also experience a brownish discharge just after your period ends.
