- What is this thick gooey discharge?
The discharge you are experiencing may be completely normal. You are meant to get some discharge as it is your body's way of cleaning your vagina and it is common to experience significantly more discharge in the lead up to ovulation. This happens to get rid of any acidity in your vagina which could kill off sperm that could potentially fertilize the new egg. Your body is making sure you are as ready as possible to be fertilized.

- Seeing a doctor
Most doctors will be able to put you at ease and examine you without making you feel too uncomfortable. They may not need to examine you and may find that a clear description of the problem is adequate for them to establish what the problem is and prescribe some medication. The sooner you see a doctor, the sooner you will have the medication that will make you feel better.
