I am an teenager and i have discharge...Well thats what i think it is....I have it all the time it is in my panties and it smells bad...What is wrong with me!?!?! How do i get rid of it!?!?!? I hate it!
First off, discharge is NORMAL. The vagina is self lubricating and self cleaning. It is suposed to have some moisture in there, that's the way it was made. No need to run off to the doc just for that. Now the smell, on the other hand, is something else. And that could possibly only be a matter of hygiene. squirleyslilsis, you didn't say how old you were, and if this is very new to you, then maybe it's a publerty issue. How long have you had this problem?
Well..The discharge goes away once i start my period and it come back when i am off. It doesn't smell so bad that i am throwing up, it is just annoying. Oh! I am 1*. a few weeks ago i had my first guy "experience" he fingered me and i guess it stretched out the skin and the discharged stop for a while, but then it comes back. I am not sure what it is i know that it cleans things but it's kinda annoying. Any suggestions? I thought i might use a douche but i heard they can cause problems "down there" so i dunno?

You sound perfectly normal, although I don't quite get what you mean by "It doesn't smell so bad that i am throwing up, it is just annoying."
As for douches, as I wrote earlier, vaginas are self-cleaning. You really don't need to douche and it may just mess up your natural pH. Discharge is a natural lubricant, you CAN'T get rid of it. Only if you are having severe problems (eg yeast infection) can you do anything about it. Just wash the OUTSIDE daily and leave the inside to take care of itself.
