Me and my boyfriend have sexual intercourse all the time. Lately I have been having thick white discharge coming from my vagina while we're doing it. Is this suppose to happen?

I don't know if you're familiar with your own body but it is normal to have some kind of discharge during sex (normally tranparent like raw egg white), it's your own vagina lubrication increasing.
Also, there's some women who experience ejaculation although it does not happen to a lot of women. But if I recall well it is not supposed to be white, it's more like transparent.
You can also have some discharge(but less) when you're not having sex since it is necessary to keep your vagina clean. During ovulation period, you can have more.
In all those cases, your discharge shouldn't have a foul smell nor should it have an abnormal color. If this happens to be your case or you're too worried you might want to take a trip to the doctor: you might be dealing with some kind of vaginal infection.
