Discharge overload

Is there any way to decrease the amount of discharge I get?

MOD MOD MOD MOD I started my period last year but i still have tons and tons of discharge. its normal clear/milky white color but theres so much! why?



Hey GL girl! No worries- discharge is a normal part of body change. Just like your period, discharge is a part of puberty, and everyone has a different body type, so don't fret! The important thing is that it's normal colored and healthy. If it continues to bother you, try using panty liners or other types of pads.


Good luck, GL girl!

I have been getting heavy, white discharge for almost 6 months now.Is my period on its way and if so, how should I deal with it if it happens at school?


Hey girl, just be prepared. Make sure you have tampons or pads in your backpack at school.

In ALL of the articles it says 'you should get your period shortly after starting discharge' or '6 months to a year after' or 'up to 16 months' Well I have been getting it for almost 2 years, so about 20 months I think. That is 4 months over the complete maximum in all the articles! Is there something wrong with me that I don't have my period yet?

Hey girl,

There is absolutely nothing wrong! No worries. Periods are super tricky and hard to generalize since they are different for every single girl. However, if there is any unusual smell or irritation, make sure to get it checked out with your doc!

Hi, can you tell me what "discharge" is? I've seen it in a lot of posts but couldn't find where it says what it is. Thankyou!

lately when i've been going to the bathroom, I have a ton of clear discharge when I wipe!! Its just started, and i dont know if i should say anything or not.

Hey girl, I wouldn't worry about it. It's completely natural/normal as you're growing up.

MOD MOD MOD MOD!!! is it normal that i always find what i think is discharge, like every day? Its usually clear (sometimes white) and its (i know really gross but...) kind of gooey? it kind of has an odor to it, and it makes me self conscious because i think other people can smell it too. First of all, is it discharge? second, should i be

worried about the smell? and lastly sorry i know this was long and kind of gross but thanks soooooo much in advanced Smile ps love your advice! <3


Hey missy, no need to be embarassed we're all girls here lol. The amount of discharge differs from woman to woman. Some women get it once in a while, others have it everyday, so it all depends on your body. There are a couple different things you can do to prevent the smell. Wearing cotton underwear helps, and refraining from using fraganced soaps down there is beneficial too. Also be sure to switch pads/tampons out.  Hope this helps!!! Smile Smile

well it depends on the person some people can have hair down there and not get their period for 2 years later [hope this helped]

by cherice2733 on 9/21/2011 9:31:13 PM


when you start getting hair down there, how long until you get your period

by bee47 on 9/4/2011 1:12:07 AM


I have discharge all the time. I don't like the feel of pads. Is there anything else I can use besides pads?

Hey girl!

Try out pantyliners.  They're much thinner  and more comfortable than pads but they serve the same purpose.

Mod! Do I have a yeast infection? "Down there" has been really itchy for the past week, my discharge is kind of clumpy, discolored, and it smells weird! If I do have a yeast infection what should I do? Thanks soooo much!! Smile

i have a lot of discharge to and when i take a shower i try to scrub well so now i do that almost every day and when i do it it doesnt work and im afraid to ask my mom if ishould get a panty liner and i already asked her for bras and she got them does that mean im growing up to fast?

by chikitho on 8/26/2011 8:00:01 PM

I sometimes have this whitish/creamy stuff in my underwear... Is this my disharge??? Also I have had this for about a year... Does this mean I will get my period soon???

That's discharge, babe! And it's definitely a sign that you're in the midst of puberty, but it's tough to tell if you'll get your period "soon" or not. Typically girls get their first period about 6-12 months after discharge starts, but it really all depends on your bod. Try to be patient Smile

I don't go to a girl doctor. I never been to one in my life, and I'm seventeen. I don't have health insurance. I don't think my parents know about the girl doctor, Should I be worried.

by lupemonkey1993 on 8/17/2011 7:18:57 PM


This may be related with my discharge but it just seems that I have more discharge after I touch myself down there like after masturbating. I am not positive but I would think it has to be related because it just seems like its more after doing that.
I know are bodies are affected by doing certain things like that where it starts to get more moist when doing that and from simply think about guys or sex, so I am thinking it has to be related. Oh well, just more to think and learn about.

by luckykel on 8/12/2011 11:21:37 PM


No no no. It is not an infection and nothing to worry about. All of us girls get it. White creamy looking stuff in our panties? it is totally normal and don't let anyone tell you it is not. It is like a mouth that gets spit. and ear that gets wax. It is the natural juices flowing. It is your body telling you that you are alive. BE HAPPY=)

by ladybugsandcocopuffs on 8/12/2011 5:26:34 PM


Thanks Mary H!! I found out that we are doing other errands around my appointment, so my mom just said that if I really don't want to tell my dad, I don't have to because we would be going places anyway. I'll let you know how it turns out!



Thanks, girl! I wish you supah good luck! Smile

MOD MOD MOD!!! Ok so tomorrow I have an appointment with my doctor because I've had an ingrown hair/pimple thing down there for a few weeks and it still hasn't gone away. My mom and I think it's a good idea to go just to make sure it's not infected or anything. I'm not really worried about what she'll say it is because I've never had sex so I know it's not an STD, but I'm worried about her looking there. I know it's her job and she's done it a billion times before, but since it's my first time having this kind of appointment, I'm worried. So I have a couple questions: 1. I might have my period, so should I use pad or tampon for the appointment? 2. Should I wear something that I normally wouldn't? 3. Should I have my mom come back with me? and 4. I went to the doctor before this showed up about a month ago, and I'm worried my dad will get suspicious about why I'm going again. My mom said she wouldn't tell but... I'd really appreciate it if you could answer these questions! Thanks!




Hey babe. Lots of girls worry about doctors visits of this kind. I want you to focus on how good you will feel after you find out whats going on rather than what the doc is going to do. You are going to feel so much better just knowing what is going on. 1) Use w/e you are comfortable with. You could aslo try calling the doc and seeing what she says. 2) Just wear something easy to get in and out of. 3) Only if that is what you want and it makes you more comfy. You don't have anything to hide so it probably fine. 4) People go to the doc when they are sick all the time. I'm sure he will just think it's that. If he asks just say it's 'girl stuff.' Guys usually back off from that.

Mod mod mod ASAP THANK YOU!

Hey girlie, you might have an infection. You should probably see a doctor to find out what's going on and how to fix it. You can definitely get pregnant on your period. It's just a myth that you can't and that's not a risk you want to take.

I havne't started getting my period ragerly yet but I noticed its towards the end of themonth when I do get it, But this last month that I had it. I came in the teens not the twentys should I be concerned?
Also Ive been having discharge that's extra sticky and is it appose to me milky white?
Ive been getting a few pains down there nothing bad but its uncomfortable when they do come, I kinda feels like dull burn to the side right now, I can't exactly tell my mom about it because Im sick right now and ive been having pains all over. So she just say its normal and I need to stop freaking out and tell me its fine.

Hey! the only way to really feel reassured is to talk to your doctor about all of these questions Smile To be honest, that's what we mods just have to tell you guys when you come to us with any health concerns. You may very well be fine, but since we're not doctors and we can't even see you face to face, it's not for us to tell you what's fine and what isn't. You know your body. Trust your instincts and talk to your doc!

Hey gl! I keep getting this clear gel-like substance when I wipe, but in my undies, it's white. I've had dischrge for about a year and a half now, and I've been having head-aches and cramps under my chest or rib-cage for about ten seconds, then it stops. I'm confused!

by queenra on 7/29/2011 11:25:42 PM


I went to the doctors today and they said nothing was wrong with me!!!! and im still crazy itchy down there!!! The cream they gave me is supposed to work but it doesnt!! GROWL

Hey girl,

It's natural to explore, but try talking to your school nurse or guidance counselor about this. x0x0

Hey girl. I can't tell you when you are going to get your period. There is no formula to figure that one out. Most time discharge doesn't smell nearly as much as you think. If it gets really heavy try wearing a pantyliner or pad. If you think that it really smells then you might need to see a doctor. Here are some links to help you out:

please answer asap!!!!
so i am 15 and havent got my period. but thats normal in my family. today i look in my underwear and found that my discharge is brown in some spots. WHAT IS GOING ON???? please answer. i need to get this fixed!
thanks so much(:

Hey girl,

No sweat! This spotting is totally normal, and usually happens in the early days of your period - it's normally light before it gets heavy and red like we're all taught to expect. Just try wearing a pantyliner if it makes you uncomfortable and stay prepared with a pad nearby in case this is the start of your first real period Smile

Mod Mod Mod!
Ok so I have been having hot flashes and headaches lately. But along with that, when I go pee I am noticing a wet spot on the bottom of my undies. Is it discharge? Thats the only thing I've noticed if it's discharge. I haven't seen anything on my tp when I wipe or anything! I am 12. Does this mean i will start my period soon if it is discharge?




Hey girl. You need to see a doctor about this. I'm not quite sure what is going on, but it will make you feel better to know for sure. As far as the wet spot goes, it may be discharge or a little of your pee leaking out.

MOD So I have had discharge for a long time... I don't know the exact amount of time. Its been so heavy to the point where I do wear panti liners because I get super itchy down there. I'm sick of it! I always feel gross and I haven't gotten my period yet. Does it stop when you get your period? And does everyone get it? Thanks!



Hey chica! Discharge is totally normal. It's part of puberty, and after you get your period, it should die down. Discharge is just your bod's way of saying that your period is on its way.

Mod: Before my period, my legs ache- A lot! I've tried pain killers, but they don't really help, and neither do Midol or Pamprin...My body disagrees with many things. Any suggestions as to what I could do to ease the ache?


Hey chica!  Working out a bit might help relieve the pain, as well as other PMS symptoms.  But I would also suggest talking to your doc, who may be able to give you some suggestions.  xoxo

MOD MOD! I haven't had my period yet, but i've had a TON of discharge lately. Is this a sign that my periods coming?? I find a lot of it in my underwear, and its embarrassing. will it go away after I've had my period? I'm also getting alot of hair, "down there". How soon will my period come?


Hey chica!  It usually comes a year or so before your period, so it's probably a sign!  It doesn't exactly stop when you start your period - you'll still have to deal with it from time to time.  I can't say for sure, but it sounds like you are on your way! Smile

by Sadie594 on 7/23/2011 11:54:52 AM


MOD MOD MOD So I've gotten discharge like 3 times, but like with months in between. What's going on? Also one time it didn't come out into my underwear, but I could feel it. What's up with this? Thanks


Hey chica!  It comes at different times and in different amounts, so I think that all sounds really normal.  If the smell or color is concerning, or you just aren't sure, check in with your doctor.  xoxo

How long does discharge last? Like, do you get it your entire life?

MOD MOD MOD! Sooo, I had my 1st period in january, then in March, then in April, then I haven't had it since. I know it's an irrgeular period, but I've been PMSing for like 4 weeks..what do I do?


Hey chica, try to take care of yourself by eating healthy and working out - that always helps manage PMS.  Talk to your doc if it gets super-painful or irregular, but remember that that's pretty normal when your period is in its first year or two.  Hang in there!  xoxo

MOD MOD MOD!!! i have been getting discharge for a loooong time now but lately i have been getting a lot of it, so much i have to change my underwear because it stinks and it feels like i pee-ed my self. I haven't gotten my period yet but my doc. said i am most likely to get it before the end of summer.... does discharge get really heavy before a period?


Hey chica, discharge does start before you get your period, but I'm not sure if the extra heaviness is a sign of it coming or not.  If it's really bothersome, ask your doc about it.  They might be able to explain the sitch.  Pantiliners can be a big help for your comfort, too!
