Back to Health A to Z. Vaginal discharge is normal — most women and girls get it. It's a fluid or mucus that keeps the vagina clean and moist, and protects it from infection. The amount of discharge varies. You usually get heavier discharge during pregnancy, if you're sexually active or if you're using birth control.
