Female Question

Hi everyone,
I have posted here before, and everyone seems to know their stuff... I am of course a male, and I have a question about my girlfriend, as she is curious about this too. From time to time, for no reason, she has drainage out of her vagina. I would imagine this is normal, and it happens at all times of the month, but I would just like some peace of mind.. Why exactly does this happen?
Jason

Re: Female Question

Hi Jason, all women of childbearing age have a vaginal discharge that is totally normal. It's normally of a clear mucus like consistency but during the time of the month when an egg is released it becomes heavier and thicker more like an egg white. As long as there is no discomfort (itching or irritation) and no odor it is perfectly normal. Ally

Re: Female Question

I understand that the discharge is due to the vagina cleansing itself, or on the other hand it can also be the ovulation. Hope this helps.

Re: Female Question

Yes, it's ALL the time throughout the childbearing years. It becomes heavier and thicker during ovulation.

Re: Female Question

Some women do have some discharge daily but for others it is not a daily thing. If it is unusual in any way it should be checked out by the doc to be sure nothing is wrong.
