It could be anything, get tested for infections and stop wearing a thong. Going commando is healthiest (not with tight pants though). If you wear panties always wear cotton. Boy shorts are very fashionable right now.

What does it mean to have really thick vaginal discharge?

The presentation of thick, white, sometimes lumpy vaginal discharge is usually considered a yeast infection. Yeast infections are common, and do not mean that you are unclean. They simply are a result of an excess of bacteria that are normally present in the vagina which have overgrown and multiplied. The bacteria thrive on a moist, warm environment. Wearing cotton underwear will help keep the area cooler, but will not make the infection go away. You must see your doctor, who will take a swab and tell you weather or not you have a yeast infection. Rarely these symptoms are a sign of other problems, but the yeast infection itself can be treated easily, once diagnosed, by an over-the-counter medication.

How do you prevent vaginal infection?

Wear cotton panties. Don't use vaginal douches. Never use petroleum jelly or oils for lubrication. If you are being treated for an infection, take the medicine. Don't have sexual in course during treatment. Avoid vaginal contact with products that can irritate the vagina, such as feminine hygiene products, perfumed or deodorant soaps, powders, lotions, and bubble baths. Avoid wearing tight-fitting clothing, such as bathing suits, exercise wear, or pantyhose, for prolonged periods of time. Many times, vaginal infections cause intense itching - don't scratch! Scratching infected, inflamed areas will only make things worse. If your period starts while you are using vaginal creams or suppositories, continue your regular medication schedule during your period, and don't use tampons - use pads instead. If you are self-treating a vaginal infection and your symptoms have not improved after treatment, see your health care provider for a vaginal exam. Don't use any vaginal products or treatments for 48 hours before your appointment. Always use condoms during sexual intercourse unless you are in a long-term monogamous relationship.Always wipe from front to back after urination or having a bowel movement. Improper wiping easily spreads bacteria to the vagina and may lead to vaginal discharge and infection.

Can wearing tampons cause a yeast infection?

Yes, tampons commonly lead to vaginal infections. Tampons give bacteria and yeast the perfect environment to multiply, while also effecting vaginal pH (altering balance of 'good' to 'bad' bacteria) and preventing vaginal cleaning - many tampons also contain chemicals that may effect vaginal flora. Bacterial infections are more common with tampons, however an imbalance in vaginal bacteria can also put you at higher risk of yeast infections - certain bacteria produce hydrogen peroxide to fight yeast, if not sufficient yeast infecitons may be more common.
