Re: does anyone else suffer from a discharge almost daily?

I have had discharge like what you are describing for the past five years. I too am in the dark about what is causing it. It's not yeast and in the past I've taken flagyl and metro gel. But it seems to be constant.
...just wanted you to know there are others out there like you!

NORMAL,NORMAL,NORMAL.

When it looks like raw egg whites that is a clue you are at your most fertile. Your body is made to take care of that area and the "discharge" is actually called Cervical Mucus.

Read the book Taking Charge Of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. It will tell you all about your body and you will learn so much more than you ever thought about. You can either buy the book or get it at your local library. I first read it from my local library.

Re: does anyone else suffer from a discharge almost daily?

I have always had varying discharges... since I was a young girl, even before I began my period. The color ranges from clear to yellow, and the consistency ranges from watery to glue-y.
I think it must just have to do with fluctuating hormones. I have had yeast infections, but the doctor said my normal discharge is not a byproduct of yeast. She said, in short, that it's NORMAL.
If you've had it checked out, and you're still nervous, you should get a second opinion to put your mind at ease. Once you've had more than one opinion, and the doctors are still saying you're normal, relax.
I know that after a while, you get to know about when in terms of your cycle your discharge is going to be heavier. Keep a little ongoing list if you want for a few months until you see a pattern. Then, at those heavier times, you can wear a very light pantiliner for a few days. (I wouldn't recommend wearing one everyday because they can hold moisture near your private area, which can cause bacteria growth and chafing.)
I like Carefree pantiliners. They're incredibly thin, shaped to fit underwear, and breathable. Experiment a bit, and I'm sure you'll find something that suits you.
Good luck, and don't worry. See another doctor, if necessary, and then find what works for you! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

I know that cervical mucus is normal at ovulation but is it normal to have it throughout the month as well?

thanks for the info..

Re: does anyone else suffer from a discharge almost daily?

i was told by my gyn that as long as there is no odor/itching or color that it is normal and it could be hormonal alot of woman have a constant discharge throughout the day and i am sure its ok but just more of a pain than anything. But if you are still concerned you could always get a second opinion if it is too bothersome...But it does seem like normal flora.
take care

I have it everyday and always have to wear a pantiliner or else I'll end up staining my underwear.

Yep, me too. Although for me it's not EVERY day of the month but half the time, from the time my period ends to maybe a week or 2 later, it varies. Isn't it annoying? <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dizzy.gif">

Re: does anyone else suffer from a discharge almost daily?

I have that too- I've been hesitant to post on this board for a long time. My mom didn't do such a great job explaining stuff to me- up until 8th grade health class I thought I had some sort of cancer because of this. I have very painful cycles and am on the pill for that reason. Yet every single day it's this awful stuff that often itches and burns. I ignore it, I haven't been to see a gyno yet. I'll be 18 soon so I probably should... Anyway I too have this problem. I'm not sure if my age or being on the pill has anything to do with it though...

BroadwayGirl-

Don't suffer!! Go to the OBGYN!! It's not bad at all!!

I was TERRIFIED my first time and very reluctant, but everything was really easy and not embarrassing! You should get this checked out-- for your peace of mind and so that you don't have to deal with the itching.

Plus, the doctor will almost definitely be able to help with your painful cycles (mine did!) and can answer all your questions.

I'm not sure how you got the pill without going, but
I urge you to go! I would not recommend ignoring anything having to do with your intimate areas. It's very important to be healthy and safe.

Welcome to the club of adult women who see OBGYNs-- membership is easy! LOL- call a doctor today!!

P.S. Don't be afraid to go to the doctor or clinic. You have lots of options to choose from. If you can't pay for the doctor or a prescription, call a clinic. They will help you figure out if you can pay a reduced price or if you qualify for free visits and sample prescriptions.

You know, your parents probably don't realize that you need to go to see the OBGYN (since you're 18- and that's a good age), or they're uncomfortable bringing it up. I think if you'd ask them about it, you'll find that they'd be relieved to help you schedule the appointment and get everything taken care of.

Also, if you're worried about your parents and bringing this up with them or your privacy... check out your state's information on the internet. I think physician/patient confidentiality rules apply in every state, so you can do all of this without telling them if that's what you want.

Unless you are positive that your parents are completely against this doctor's visit, I encourage you to tell them about it, though. Your parents can really help you out and are an important source of support. Of course, I don't know how old you are. If you feel you're old enough, you can go without telling your parents. You might want to consider it, though.

Good luck! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
