Dealing with discharge

 

Sometimes I feel like water is coming down onto my underwear but, when I check, nothing is there.


Is something wrong?


Six months to a year before their first period, girls start to produce vaginal discharge that makes underwear feel damp. This is how your body clears dead cells from the vagina to keep you free of infection. The fluid is usually thin and slightly sticky but can be thick and gooey. Color ranges from clear to off-white, says Dr. Mary Ann LoFrumento, a pediatrician in Morristown, N.J.


If your discharge develops a fishy smell, causes itching or burning, or looks dark, this is a sign of a vaginal infection so see a doc for a fast remedy. Another totally different reason for the watery feeling could be urine drops from holding it too long. Never do that—not peeing leads to urinary tract infections. Now you have a great excuse for a hall pass!
