My sister is too shy to ask about this so I'm going to do it for her because I'm concerned. About 6 months ago, she noticed that occasionally on her panty-liners during a week before/a week after her menstrual cycle, the material would develop a greenish-blue tint. It doesn't look like a discharge, her urine color is normal, there isn't really any odor...She's had a ton of bloodtests and nothing's shown up as being abnormal and we're kind of at a loss as to what it could be. Our initial thought was some sort of STD but she hasn't had a partner in a year and she and her partner were both clean at that time, they were always protected, etc.

Anyone ever have something similar happen? Any thoughts as to what it could be? We're not sure how concerned we should be about this, but it's VERY peculiar.

  • I would just go to the STD clinic and do some lab work about mid way through her cycle. Can't hurt. I don't think most men know when they have anything.

  • I read somewhere a while ago (not at this site) about how the body not properly breaking down something in the body (sorry ive forgotten now what it was. enzyme not working properly???) can cause a bluish kind of discharge (umm i think what ir ead said it could be in sweat too and stain clothing a bit..). (it was something not at all common so i doubt if many doctors would know about it).

  • Maybe its CFS. Ask the panel about NAET, that should help...I am just being sarcastic, sorry. Really, It is probably just her pre-ovulation fluids. Is it alot, like a period over the course of a whole week, or like she peed her pants amount of fluid? Or is it just a slow leakage for a few hours?

  • Chromhidrosis is the discoloration of sweat and occurs after sweating. It occurs on the genitals, anxillary and face. There is a not a lot of information but you can google it to see if that's what it is. It is also odorless and usually is a result of the andocrine glands (Which are also located in those same areas)
