Re: excessive discharge...underwear always wet...help!!!
Bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections and trich are infections that can pop up even in virgins. You do not need to be sexually active to end up having one of these. These are all caused by inflammation of the vaginal area - whether it's from sex, or tampon use, etc.
If you have a sexual health clinic in your city - go there. They follow strict confidentiality (as all doctors should be doing!), and can write you a perscription there. This way you don't need to go see your family doctor.
These infections won't clear up on their own - if you hold off on treatment and it is something like a vaginal infection you could have devestating consequences in the future.
Basically what these infections are, are the result of bad bacterial fighting your good bacteria in your vagina. You will always have a little of bad and good types of bacteria in your urogenital tract, but they maintain a proper balance which creates a favorable pH environment for proper vaginal health. If anything occurs (like using a tampon when its too dry down there, or sex, or just plain humidity), the bad bacteria will overtake the good. Bacterial infections are ones that NEED a perscription.
For the sake of your health, get yourself to the doctor of your choosing. You mother does not need to know, and if she does - she's a woman and probably have a few of these infections in her past, herself. She will understand.
Again, you don't need to be having sex to end up with one of these.
