Discharge? Updated

I was getting changed this morning when I noticed that I had a bit of discharge...down there. Yeah down there. It was kinda sticky. I think this stuff appears in my underwear too when I go to change them. What is this stuff?

Re: Discharge?

its normal for women to have vaginal discharge, especially if you're ovulating. if the vagina wasnt kept moist, we'd be very uncomfortable.

the discharge will change in consistency and odor if you've got an infection, like yeast infection for example.

if you're concerned something might be wrong, talk to your doc/ob-gyn and/or get a pap smear.

Re: Discharge?

Its most likely ovulation discharge or natural vaginal discharge. As Scoot said we need this discharge to keep us moist. As long as your not itchy or discharge has a odour or changed colour then its fine. But if it does have a odour, change colour or is very itchy, then this would be a yeast infection which we all get hundreds of times throughout our life. All you need to do in this case is, buy some yeast or thrush cream from the pharmacist and it will be cleared up in a few days.

Re: Discharge?

Ok, thanks for the info. It is kind of thick and mucousy cause I didn't ovulate yet. I just kind of...umm...shaved for the past while down there and I noticed that I could actually see it...ummm....dripping a bit. O.o;; I don't feel any different though, so yeah guess I am normal. ^^

Re: Discharge?

UPDATE: I checked it again today when I went to use the washroom. My discharge is kind of thick and mucusy. I think I saw a tinge of a yellowish color in it too. This past weekend, I have been under a lot of stress due to exams and some family issues at home. Could stress have changed my discharge? I also had some weird pains in my abdomine and chest cavity. My friend at school said that I probably just have gas but I don't know. I know I am not pregnant or anything like that because I have been having my usual periods with their regular flow (heavey on the first couple of days and then normal and then black which lasts for about a week). Could I have an infection? Or could this be due to stress? I have also changed my diet lately. I don't have any iching or anything like that down there.

Re: Discharge?

during ovulation your discharge will look like egg whites actually, sometimes there's quite a bit! I've also had it yellowish (like mucus when a kid has a cold or something!), but nothing was wrong (I happened to have my routine pap at that time and there was nothing wrong), sometimes yellow means infection, sometimes the discharge is like cottage cheese (infection too), and if it smells really bad? (infection). The mucus is there around ovulation so that it can carry the sperm upward easily... that is when you are the most fertile. You'll notice that about a week before your period you'll be "dry".
