frustration, std, or yeast infection?

Ok... normally I masturbate at least once a day... sometimes two or three. Normally the discharge that comes out is clear and liquidy with no offensive odors, although sometimes it's more opaque than clear. However do to living situations I haven't been able to masturbate for about a week. I finally get a chance to do it today and (sorry to be so explicit) when I pulled my fingers out there was this really thick, white, creamy like substance all over them. I know that cycle's affect the properties of discharge and stuff like that... but this has never happened before. It was like, thicker than yogurt thick. But it didn't smell and I haven't itched and there was no pain during masturbation. Also it was smooth... not cottage cheese like so I don't think it's a yeast infection. Is it just because my body's used to having that release and it's like built up? Or should I be worried that it's something more serious? I don't really think it's an STD because I've never had intercourse, but I suppose I wouldn't rule out the possibility. If anyone could help me I would appreciate it a lot.

To answer your question... Frustration. It doesn't sound like you have anything to worry about from your post. I'm not a doctor, but it doesn't sound abnormal. See if things change as the days go on. If you begin to feel an itch or discomfort, then see a doctor. I think you're okay.

I'm not sure if you are on BCP or not, but you could just be ovulating. If you don't have any odor or itching than you should be okay. I know your discharge can get thicker when you ovulate. (not to mention thats when you are more "in the mood") hehe.

I disagree.. there is no big reason to think you have an STD. Most of the STD's have symptoms more than just a discharge. Itching, pain etc.. So I don't think you should panic and think you have an STD. If you are concerned a gynecological appt could help clear your mind.

She is not sexually active, so it can't be an STD.
