I have a white flaky discharge that comes from my vagina. Its similar to small moist flakes. I don't have any pain itching or other discomfort. I went to the docter three months ago and all she said was it may be a yeast infection. I took the medicine for the yeast infection and the symptoms still remain. What is this?
It might be normal. Your use of "flaky" suggests it might be what medically is called "flocculent"--i.e., mostly clear to slightly coudy fluid with whitish flecks in it. That appearance is normal.
On the other hand, if there is a definite increase in amount, it's possible some sort of infection is going on. It doesn't sound like yeast, which usually would have itching or a burning sensation. Probably not a vaginal infection. Perhaps a cervical infection (e.g., chlamydia).
Is there any chance you're pregnant? Or recent new hormonal contraception (pill, implant, depo shots) or change in the type or dose? Those can often cause increased amount of normal vaginal fluid.
If it continues, see your health care provider again. But I doubt anything serious is going on.
