Hello Dear, Diarrhea and your vaginal discharge don't seem to be related in any way. In many cases, it is even normal to have white discharge in middle of your monthly cycle. However you can wait for a couple of days for the white discharge to reduce or take a course of antifungals which will reduce the discharge and also reduce itching and burning.
