Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I have a lot of clear discharge every day. I mean a lot! I think that I'm getting my period in about one week, but this discharge is overwhelming. I'm going to the bathroom every 10 minutes during class so it won't leak. What's up with me? Help!

Julie,

Having a daily vaginal discharge even after you start having periods is normal. You will continue to have vaginal discharge throughout most of your adult life. Changing levels of hormones in the female's body causes vaginal discharge. This fluid helps keep the vagina clean and healthy.

 

Vaginal discharge will vary throughout your cycle. Some days it may be wet and liquidy, other days it may be thick and ropey, or you may find it to be thin and slightly sticky to thick and gooey. The color can be clear to white or off-white. You will find the amount of discharge may vary daily also.

 

If you do not like the way the discharge feels and/or you want to protect your undies, try wearing a pantiliner each day. The pantiliner will absorb the vaginal discharge and help you feel fresh and dry.

 

Hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts

Mollylover19- If it is pee it will be yellow and probably dry. Discharge feels wet or sticky and is a white, off-white, or clear. Trust me, I had the same question when I was in third grade. I had yellow stuff in my underwear sometimes and I thought it was discharge. Now, as a fifth grader, I have gotten sticky, liquidy, clear discharge in my underwear for about a year so I know now that the yellow stuff was not discharge.

@kjperson1 I don't know if mine is discharge either, I get a really wet feeling, and then it dries and there are little white crusty dots. Is that discharge?

I get a clear discharge 5-10 days before my period. It is completely normal.i also get it after my period. That's normal too! When I get the clear discharge before my period, I know that it's time to wear a liner :) any questions? Ask me! :)

Its completeley normal for your discharge to harden that happens to me too!and it doesnt dry on the pantiliner for me,it stays slightly wet.wearing a pantiliner makes you forget you even have discharge!
