lately it seems like i have had a lot of thick white discharge in my underwear after even just a few hours. i've started wearing pantyliners, but if i become sexually active again, that seems like it might be embarrassing. what's going on down there? it's been like this in between periods for probably a couple months now. it smells a little strange, but there is no itching or anything else. i'm std-free as i got tested in october and haven't been active since. help?

So long as it's a normal color (clearish-whitish) and doesn't smell terrible, then it's totally normal. Different parts of your cycle have different consistencies and different quantities of discharge. Similarly, like lifestyle changes or stress can alter your cycle, they can have a similar effect on your discharges, since they're all intertwined.
Sounds perfectly normal to me.
