im 15 and i've had this vaginal discharge for 3 years. at first i would only get it after my period and now i get it every day. i've never had sex.
my mum says its normal, but i dont believe it is, i've had it for 3 years!
it consists of
- yellow stains
- yellow chunky discharge, not to chunky but some thickness to it.
- and it smells, i dont know what, but not a very attractive smell
its embarrasing cause i can smell it, i dont believe other people can.
and sometimes i can feel it coming out
and sometimes white stains with a bit of crustyness to it.
and sometimes it can get a real thick deep type of yellow with some brown-ness in it.
i just want to get rid of it, it smells! and wrecks my underwear!
cheers for your help!
just said about the underwear to emphasize the point
come on, are you sure this is normal?
its not like liquid
it is a bit thick and crusty
i want to go to the doctor but i dont know.....mum says its normal, so she doesnt really see a point sorta, like she knows i dont like it...but hmm
like mucky and just unclean
i just want it to go away.
everyday i get this and some days its just mucousy discharge and other days it thick and chunky and stuff :-( im so scared
i thought it was a yeast infection or something,
or maybe even clamidia. and i'm really embarrassed about
it as well. i even want to go and see a gynocologist.
i didn't really talk about it to my mom, i just told
her that it was a yeast infection and to buy me stuff for it.
my life is at a low point.
What you're describing sounds like totally normal vaginal discharge. Anywhere from thick like snot to thin and watery, white or clear or even yellow is all normal. The smell may be non-existent or a bit musky (I dunno, just smells like woman to me!) but so long as it doesn't smell rotten or like bread dough you should be fine. The flaky stuff in your panties is surely annoying as c**p, but also normal. It's just dried discharge. If it itches or bothers you, you might try to rub it off with TP when you use the restroom.
At your age I had exactly the same thoughts about it, that it was gross and unclean, but it's really not. It's a normal (and very healthy!) part of you vagina's self-cleansing cycle. If it bothers you too badly, you might try lightly scented panty-liners (so long as they don't irritate you) or freshen up with a baby-wipe throughout the day.
I think now I worry more if it doesn't happen than if it does, lol. Hope things work out for you guys.
a couple years before my first period i got this mucus discharge, exactly what all of you are describing. i was worried at first but its been over ten yrs since ive had it and now i kno its super normal
kinda gross but what i do to save my undies is use a thin layer of toilet paper, or a liner if its handy.. but toilet paper comes easier and can be thrown away easily. its frickin annoying having to deal with it but don't worry, every girl out there has got it. It obviously ranges from women to women but it happens!!!
stay dry! haha
9 out of 10 times it's that thick stuff, but every once and a while, it's a like a thin yellow liquid, but it dries up.
i just want some advice to stop it. :$
