I am 19 years old, and for as long as i can remember i have had a pretty heavy vaginal discharge. i know its normal since it is clear/whiteish, and has a low odor. But i am sick and tired of taking off my panties really quickly so my boyfriend doesn't see the dried buildup of discharge. It happens every day except for my period, and i hate wearing pantyliners, since they bunch up in akward places. Its not an infection or anything, since my doctor would have told me. Its just frankly embarassing to have to excuse yourself to go to the bathroom to wipe it up or to take off your underwear stealthily so no one can see.

  • I know how you feel, i have a similar problem and it seems to me that there is no way out. The amount seems to be normal, a way a vagina is cleaning up. I've also had tests and there was nothing wrong, my gyn told me my vaginal flora was perfect. It would be best if you introduced your boyfriend to this situation, so he could get use to it and not see it as a problem. It works for me and I didn't even have to explain much. By the way, are you using a lot of soap or creme showers or something? Try using plain water for some time and see if things change.

  • I also know how both of you feel. I hate it. Its really annoying. It is also embarrassing when my mom does the laundry and asks me why my underwear is like that. I normally just ignore it. But when it gets to uncomfortable i just switch out my underwear when no one is looking but i am in a different situation. I aint got no boyfriend. :(

  • Vaginal discharge is normal and varies during your menstrual cycle. Before ovulation (the release of the egg), there is A LOT of mucous produced, up to 30X more than after ovulation. It is also more watery and elastic during that phase of your cycle. You may want to wear panty liners during that time. The things to be worried about include if the discharge has a yellow or green color, is clumpy like cottage cheese, or has a bad odor. If worried, see a doctor.To help prevent and treat vaginal discharge: Keep your genital area clean and dry.Avoid douching. While many women feel cleaner if they douche after menstruation or intercourse, it may actually worsen vaginal discharge because it removes healthy bacteria lining the vagina that are there to protect you from infection.Use an over-the-counter cream or vaginal suppository, IF you know that you have a yeast infection.Try to reduce stress.Eat yogurt with live cultures or take Lactobacillus acidophilus tablets when on antibiotics to avoid a yeast infection.Use condoms to avoid catching or spreading sexually transmitted diseases.Keep your blood sugars under good control if you have diabetes.
