Hello, I'm 17 years old and kind of scared, I'm a hypochondriac so I let every little thing get to me, even if I have the flu I think I'm dying or there is something really wrong with me. I've been having this white discharge coming from my vagina but it's really thin and there is no odor, but once in a while I have to itch and I get a burning sensation. I'm really scared because I'm not a dirty person and I hope it is nothing serious. So I need some advice can someone please help me, and if you think it is something serious please tell me. Thanks for your advice.
Okay, It is really doubtful that you have an STD.
The female reproductive system releases discharge as a cleansing process and it is completely normal to have thin white discharge and it can be kind of slimy too, also can have a more off white color too.
Yeast infections tend to be somewhat clumpy and do sometimes have a yellowish tint and it is obvious when you have when as the itch can be very bothersome.
I have had yeast infections and have had white thin discharge now and again and I see a gynocologist every year and I'm perfectly fine.
If it is odorless and you don't think it is necessary to see a doctor then that is your call. You may want to see one just for piece of mind.
It is very normal to have discharge, it is part of being a woman. Chances are you are fine but if you are having sex you should be having annual check-ups.
27 years old
1993: T1 to L1 fusion due to scoliosis at age 17
2000: Tore and ruptured L4 L5 & L5 S1-it finally got better after about a year. Did really well for about a year.
June 2002: Had a relapse and tore/ruptured disc again.
Now I'm 14 months into it and the pain is still there.
Can't deal with it anymore so I'm having a discectomy in Sept. Hoping and praying that it takes care of my problems!!
I am a hypochondriac also.. I think everything that happenes down there is bad... I am tested annually for std's, and I have always been fine. my vaginal discharge is always prominent.. it ranges from being thick- to not so thick to - whitesh in color/ sometimes has like a yellow tint too-- and guess what ? Its sometimes doesnt smeel to pleasent either.. I would say dont worry about it. I hate the interenet..it convinced my that I had every STD in the book....
