The amount of discharge we have (as well as what that discharge looks like) changes throughout our cycle. It is nothing to worry about.

Assuming you're talking about your regular vaginal discharge here, it's just something that can occur in a greater or smaller amount over time - a change in discharge amount doesn't really mean anything, for the most part. It's just something that happens, and we certainly can't know why.

It sounds like you're noticing a lot of things about your body right now and are worrying that they're signs of something else, but probably these are all the sort of minor changes that are always happening and you're just noticing them now because you're looking for them.

What sorts of things do you do to calm down when you're feeling stressed out? I think it would be a great idea to try to focus a little less on analyzing your body right now and do something relaxing. =)

Next time you see a healthcare provider, it may be a good idea to talk a little bit about any of these changes you've been noticing; a doctor will be able to examine you and talk you through some of this in ways we can't, not being doctors or able to see you.

Having someone who can examine you reinforce the fact that, in all likelihood, what you're experiencing are just the normal fluctuations of various body systems might help you rest a little easier in the future.

And certainly if anything you're feeling feels immediately painful or *very* wrong, then it's time to see a doctor sooner rather than later.
