"Discharge"

  • Hello,
    I have normal white discharge but I also have some light yellow bits aswell
    What is it??

    Try not to worry as discharge can often appear creamy yellow in colour. This is all very normal.

  • Hi vicki,
    So after 7 months of discharge I had a couple of drops of blood in my pants, this was 3 weeks ago and now I'm having really bad low abdominal pain and I'm feeling really upset
    Do you think I could have a period in the next couple of days? Xx

    It would be almost impossible to say, periods can have both long and short gaps between each one for the first few years, so my advice would be to keep some pads and liners with you when out and about.


  • Hiya viki for the past year I have been getting a clear discharge but apart from that I have shown not really any signs of puberty (I Am 12)
    Is this normal?

    This is very normal and as time goes by you will start to notice more signs of becoming a young woman and you can find out more by reading the articles on our Puberty tab.

  • Hi Viki

    I haven't got my period yet but I get discharge, it has suddenly got heavy and started to go brown is it my period or something else
    Thank you

    Brown fluid in your underwear is often your period as menstrual fluid can vary in colour from light brown to dark red.

  • Hi vicki, I'm getting whitish gooey liquid around my vagina and I've had for a few months but I don't know what it is and I haven't started my period yet?????

    Discharge is a clear mucus that is produced by glands found at the entrance to the womb together with normal secretions found on the walls of the vagina.  It works to keep our vaginas clean and free of infection and tells us that our bodies are getting ready for when our period arrives.  You might like to consider using pant liners as they wil keep you feeling fresh and clean down there.

  • What does green stuff in your pants mean because my friend has it?!

    It is possible for discharge to appear dark yellow/green when it dries out.  Your friend might like to consider using pant liners to keep her feeling fresh and clean down there.

  • For the past couple of days, my discharge has become really thin, I guess I could say it is like egg yolk... It's completly clear and doesnt have an smell. It's just really heavy and feels like I'm setting myself :/ is this anything to worry about and what could it mean? Thanks!

    It is normal for discharge to stick to your pubic hair and when it dries out, it becomes hard.  You might like to consider using Lil-Lets teens Freshen-Up wipes as they will keep you feeling fresh and clean down there.

    Hi Lauren, this could be your period so my advice is to have a chat to your mum or the person who cares for you and share this news with them.
