I have been experiencing a huge increase in vaginal discharge for the past two days. It is really weird because it is liquidy, but when I touch it on my underwear it is sticky. But it is not sticky enough to stretch.It feels like I have put my finger on a glue stick. It almost feels like I am ovulating. But, my period ended three days ago and I don't recall ever experienceing so much discharge after having a period. Does this mean anything? Is this normal?

Increased discharge can be a sign of infection - it could also be that you just have a bit of an imbalance in the bacteria in your vagina that hasn't become an infection yet and may right itself without any interference. Keep an eye on it for a couple of days, and if it doesn't go away, or if you start noticing a strong smell or having any itching, then make an appointment with your doctor to get it checked out.
