Abnormal vaginal discharge:

Even though, it is common for women to experience slight vaginal discharge between menstrual cycles as it is the normal process happening in the body to clean the reproductive passage, but, when it is excess, it is better to seek medical help. Also, the discharge will increase, when ovulating, when sexually aroused and when breastfeeding. When there are changes in the quantity, odor and color, it is better to seek medical attention. The reason is that it can be caused due to menopause, cervical cancer, and side-effects of birth control pills, sexually transmitted infections, yeast or bacterial infections. When the vaginal discharge is abnormal, it can cause a lot of discomfort as well. So, it is better to seek help immediately.

Irregular bleeding:

Light spotting before the onset of period and during ovulation period is something normal. But, when it happens at inappropriate times, it is better to seek medical attention as it can be caused due to other reasons like inflammation in cervix, uterine or cervical cancer, fibroids, infection in pelvic organs, etc.

Other situations that need immediate gyno attention are unusually heavy periods, lumps in breasts, excessive sweating and vaginal odor.
