Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Females normally have some white discharge during the cycle. If you do not have burning sensation, pain or itching. And the discharge is not foul smelling, then no need to do anything. It is normal. If it is abnormal, then you will have to take medicines accordingly. For tablets ease consult nearby physician, let the doctor see what type of discharge you have and take antibiotics accordingly.

Some precautions: Drink more water, keep the lower area dry, change pads more frequently during your period, wear cotton underwear, if possible. Wash with plain water and urinate everytime after sex.
