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 --- 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
