unusually opaque discharge

I am slightly concerned as lateIy i have had a large amount of vaginal discharge. It does not have a particarly strong smell - if any really - but it is (this is my concern) exceptionally white/opaque and relatively thicker than normal.

Should I be concerned?

I am approx 2wks from the start of my period and I am on the pill - triphasil.

Is this a common symptom of an STD or an infection?

I appreciate your response.

It may be normal but, if you have never had it before, you should have it checked. An infection is possible.
