Well, you all know we have been educated on STDs (or well, at least most), and one of the symptoms is white/yellowish discharge from the vagina for the females.
But I have a question, females do have white discharge on the usual days as well. So how do we differentiate the normal discharge from the discharge which is supposed to be the symptoms for STDs? Perhaps like, pain or what?

White discharge is okay. Yellow, gray, green, etc, can signal infection and you need to be seen by a doctor. Discharge that has a foul odour can also signal infection. Pain or irregular bleeding can also be sign.
Some STIs don't show symptoms (especially in women), though. This is why it's SUPER important to practice safer sex and have annual STI screens.
