    Hi Sam, why not consider having a spare pair of pants in your school bag so if the discharge is very heavy you can change at break. Remember to have a plastic bag to put your school bag to, so you can place your soiled underwear safely away.

  • Hi, I have been having discharge for about 4 months and its sometimes quite uncomfortable. But how much longer should I have it for? Does it lead all the way up to my period?

    It is normal to release discharge for between 6-12 months before your period arrives. You might like to consider using LIl-Lets teens Liners as they are ideal for keeping your underwear fresh and clean.

    Hi Aangel319, discharge can be thick sometimes and stick to your vagina and pubic hair. Why not consider trying our Lil-Lets teens freshen-up wipes they can be used when you visit the toilet to keep you feeling clean and fresh.

  • Hi Vicki,
    I started to have discharge last year and it was quite regular, but a few months ago it stopped and i haven't had any ever since. Is this normal?
    Thanks, Tahi.

    Hi Tahi, it is quite common for discharge to come and go and it's nothing to worry about.

  • *********************************************
    my disgarge is a reddy brown and i only knew i had disgarge yesterday.
    am i going to have my period soon?
    if so,do you have any advice on how to manage?

    Reddish brown fluid in your underwear is most likely your period so please have a chat to your mum or the person who cares for you and share your news with them. They will then ensure you have some towels and liners going forward.

  • I get black bits in my discharge. Is this normal?
    -zoe

    Hi Zoe, this is most likely fluff from your underwear mixed in with discharge and nothing to worry about.

  • Hey Vicki
    Is discharge a sign that you have hit puberty?
    Thanx Xxx!!!xxX

    It's one of many signs that you are pubescent yes.

  • Hi Vicki
    I'm 10 years old and I'm getting really heavy, white, thick discharge. I've not been getting stomach cramps so I don't think I'm getting my period but the discharge gets really annoying and when it drys it's sort of yellowy. Please help and tell me what to do!!

  • Hi Vicky! I've had discharge for around a year now and recently it has been getting heavier. It has been like this for the past fortnight! How long do you think it is until I start my periods? xx

    Discharge can be noticed for about 6-12 months before the arrival of you period and during this time you will have times when its consistency changes. This is very normal and a sign your body is working just as it should.

  • I've been getting lots of sticky white/clear discharge for around a month, I've had discharge for around a year. Is this a sign I'm going to start my period soon? xxx thanks for your help

    Discharge is always a great sign that your period is not too far away, so from now on ensure you have some towels or liners in your school or sports bag just in case it arrives whilst you are out and about.

  • Hey. Everytime my private gets wet because of the discharge. I wipe it away but more comes out. I live with my dad and I don't want to tell him to buy pantyliners and my sister just doesnt understand. My vagina is itchy so I stopped using pants and then my discharge turned from thick white to clear. Few days ago I had belly aches and I texted my friend who started her period and she said I'm close but I didn't start. Am I close ?

    Discharge is a great sign that your period is not too far away and you really do need to speak to your dad about supplies of sanitary products. Don't worry dads know all about periods and I am sure he will be more than happy to take you shopping for supplies. Discharge can be an inconvenience sometimes and pant liners will help you feel fresh and clean, so why not ask your dad if you can request a free sample from me so both of you can check out the Lil-Lets teens range.

  • i have yellow pee stains in my pants ....what is this because people say that discharge is gooey but mine never is and sometimes its white and wet and i wear WHITE pants all the time and i can c it...plz help

    Discharge when dry can resemble a yellow stain in your underwear and at other times it can be clear and look like a wet patch. Both are normal and I think you may find our section on Discharge under the Puberty tab very useful.

  • Is it normal to have black spots in my discharge?
    What are they

    This could be fluff from your underwear mixed with your discharge and this is fairly common.

  • I have started my period and I just got off of it and now I have brown discharge what does that mean

    Brown discharge is generally the end of your period and it is very common for menstrual fluid to be this colour at the end of your period.

  • Hi Vicki!
    Well first I'm 12 and started my discharge when I was 10 but I noticed that when I went to the restroom I have a white ball of discharge like mucus is this bad may I have an infection please help!

    Discharge can very often form balls in your underwear and is nothing to worry about.

  • ❀❀Hey Vicki❀❀
    So I have had discharge for about 6 and a half months but this week it has gotten heavier/more so I have been using the Lil-lets panty liners but about 10 minutes later I have already released discharge. What does this mean ? Or does that just happen sometimes?
    Thank you Xxxx!!! πŸ’„πŸŒ‚πŸŽ€πŸ‘‘πŸ’…πŸ‘—πŸ‘ πŸ’œ

    This is the way discharge is released...over a period of a few hours and very normal.

  • I've had discharge for a while, and I've never had problems with it. Now my discharge is a lot heavier and I've noticed that a bit of it is clear (a little whitish) and sticky and kind of looks like jelly. I'm 12 and I've never had a period. What's going on?

    Discharge can very often change in colour and texture and it is nothing to worry about.

  • Hi Vicky me Abigail again I found your reply about emotions and that but when will I get discharge I am nine and a half on the 14th of June this year I turn ten so when will I get discharge can you let me know ASAP? Thanks Abigail bye

    Hi Abigail, discharge just like periods can arrive at different times for everyone. Some girls notice discharge about 6-12 months before the arrival of their first period, while others never notice discharge at all. Why not read our section on Discharge under the Puberty tab.

  • Hi vicki
    How much discharge should you get a day?
    Lucy x 😊

    Hi Lucy, this can vary. Sometimes you lose a little fluid and then other days lots. This is all based on the level of hormones in your body from time to time and very normal. Why not read our section on Discharge under the Puberty tab.

  • Hi Vicki,
    How can you tell whether brown patches in your pants are your period or jut a stain?
    Thank you
    Lucy x 😊

    Hi Lucy, you will be able to tell if the brown discharge is waste matter by the odour.

  • Hi Vicki,
    Is it usual for discharge to be yellow?
    Thank you
    Lucy x 😊

    Hi Lucy, it is normal for discharge to appear yellow when it dries out.

  • Hi thank you for answering y other questions!
    Is it usual to have discharge for such a long time as four years?

    This is an exception to the rule but not unheard of. Why not ask your mum or guardian to book an appointment with your GP to ensure that everything is as it should be and then you will have peace of mind.

  • Hi Vicki,
    I usualy have yellow discharge and have had it for about 4 years. Then one day I got brown discharge. Two days after I got brown discharge again!
    I am really worried as nobody knows!
    What is it?

    Brown discharge can often present itself as a first period so be sure to keep some sanitary towels close to hand and wait to see what happens over the coming weeks and months.

  • help! i get yellow stains on my pants everyday and sometimes my private part is wet and slimy! im only 11.

    This is discharge and it is perfectly normal as it not only works to keep our vaginas clean and free from infection but also lets us know that our body's preparing itself for when our period arrives. Check out the following link for more information: http://www.lil-lets.co.uk/becomingateen/Puberty/Discharge

  • Hey Vicki I am 12 and looked all over the Internet for something about my problem nothing has said anything about it. I have not told my mom any of this stuff because I'm embarrassed and shy . Well any way I found this clear gooey stuff in my underwear once and I have this dark brown stuff that comes out of my nipple . I looked on the Internet but it said stuff about pregnancy when I have not even started my period . Thank you and please help me

    The clear gooey stuff you noticed in your underwear is discharge and it is perfecly normal so try not to worry as it works to keep our vaginas clean and free from infection. Nipple leakage is very normal and is caused by the increase in hormones. Try to keep the area clean by washing in warm soapy water.

  • Hi! 😳😳😳😳 I'm 12 and just stopped my period last week but this problem has been going on like forever! My discharge is really heavy and I hate it! I wear panty liners but they either come off my undies or stick to my private because of the discharge! And sometimes it itches down there and my discharge is thick and white but it's not a yeast infection because it doesn't hurt and doesn't itch a lot just whenever I have discharge come out. What is this? (Sorry if it's too detailed!) -AnneM

    Hi Anne, for more information on how to stay fresh and clean down there check out the following link: http://www.lil-lets.co.uk/becomingateen/blog/2013/August/07/Feeling%20Clean%20and%20Fresh%20down%20there?author=Vicki You might also like to try using our Lil-Lets Freshen-Up wipes as they will also help you feel fresh and clean down there too: http://www.lil-lets.co.uk/becomingateen/blog/2013/August/15/New%20Teens%20Wipes

  • Hi what are panti liners and what is a discharge I have know idea .

    Discharge is a clear mucus that is produced by the glands found at the entrance to your womb together with normal secretions found naturally on the walls of the vagina. It works to keep our vaginas clean and free from infection and also tells us that pour bodies are preparing themselves for when our period arrives. Pant liners are thin pads worn to collect discharge and keep your underwear fresh and clean. They are also sometimes worn at the beginning or towards the end of a period when a woman's menstrual flow is very light.

  • Hi Vicki I'm starting to get brownish discharge is it a symptom of periods ?

    Brown discharge can often present itself as a first period so be sure to ask your mum or guardian for some sanitary towels and see what happens over the coming weeks and months.

  • πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’›(so I know it's mine)
    Hi Vicki,
    I was wondering if a discharge is consistent? I don't think it is, but I wanted to be sure because I my last discharge was a like 8 days ago, then I had another not to long ago. Is this normal?

    Try not to worry as discharge can change in amount, colour and consistency throughout your menstrual cycle.

  • My vagina itches and hurts and I have white discharge and brown discharge and should I wear
    menstruation pad

    Brown discharge often presents itself as a first period so be sure to ask your mum or guardian to buy some sanitary towels for you and see what happens over the coming weeks and months.

  • Hi Vicky I have been having discharges and a part of my vagina hurts is it an infection

    If the discharge has a foul smelling odour, is causing irritation and has the texture of cottage cheese, then yes you may have a vaginal infection. Why not have a chat to your mum or the person who cares for you and let them know of your concerns.

  • There is a gooey white stuff on my underwear and sometimes it is brown HELP!!

    Brown discharge can often present itself as a first period so be sure to ask your mum or guardian for some sanitary towels and see what happens in the coming weeks and months.

  • When it comes to puberty I'm the exact opposite of my mum. She Has light discharge I have heavy discharge. She had big boobs when she was younger I have tiny ones. She had regular periods and mine are completely irregular and she was an early bloomer and I'm a late one. I thought you were meant to be like your mum?

    This is a myth as we definitely don't always follow our mums. Try not to worry though as I'm sure you will be noticing development soon.

  • Helpppp! I think I just had my period but I'm not sure. I know that girls get white spots In their panties but mine came out a horrible brown! It has only happened today and my mum advised that I wear a pad but will this continue or not?

    Rachel xx

    Hi Rachel, brown discharge can often present itself as a first period. To protect your underwear from possible leakage, it would be wise to wear either a sanitary towel or a pant liner.

  • Hi vicki ______________________
    Everyday i haave white stuff comming out of my vagina & i havent done sex i am only 11 year old girl and today it came littlebit to the yellowish but not every yellow but not white but recintly it comes white

    The 'white stuff' you refer to is discharge and it is perfectly normal as it works to keep our vaginas clean and free from infection. It is also normal for it to appear yellow when it dries out so try not to worry.

  • My discharge is always only a tiny bit I've had it for 8months when will it become heavy or go brown?

    As you've been releasing discharge for 8 months already, I can only guess that your period isn't too far away.

  • I have wight lmb umpy discharge about 4or5 times a day, xxxx

    Try not to worry as it's normal for discharge to vary in consistency, colour and amount throughout your menstrual cycle.

  • Vicki my discharge come out white and then within minutes it turns a browny colour??

    Brown discharge can often present itself as a first period so be sure to ask your mum or guardian to buy some sanitary towels for you and see what happens over the coming weeks and months.

  • URGENT- HI Vicki, I have had discharge for about 7 months and now all of a sudden it has stopped for a week is this ok? Thnks xxx

    Try not to worry as it's normal to notice gaps in the release of discharge throughout your menstrual cycle.

  • Hi Vicki, I have had discharge for more than 5 months now, all of a sudden it has stopped for almost a week, is that normal? thnks

    Try not to worry as it's normal to notice gaps in releasing discharge.

  • I have brown discharge and have hair downstairs and on my armpit. I have had brown discharge before once around 6 months ago. I am too scared to talk to anyone about it. I also need to shave but to scared to ask my mum. What should I do? Please reply asap. N x

    Try to remember that your mum was a young girl going through puberty once so you shouldn't feel embarrassed to talk to her. Brown discharge can often present itself as a period so be sure to ask her for some sanitary towels and see what happens in the coming weeks and months. However, it can take a while for your hormones to control the changes in your body and to then reach a balance for your regular period. So it might be irregular like this for up to 2 years.

  • Do you still release discharge even when you are pregnant or when your periods have stopped? (Also what is it called when your periods stop?)

    Some women can still experience discharge when pregnant and equally some women notice this fluid after menstruation has ceased permanently. When a woman's no longer menstruates she is said to have reached menopause.

  • I am 12 and have started my period but my discharge has always come out yellowy and quite think. also smelly- do i have an infection?

    Discharge can very often be yellow in colour but this does not mean you have an infection. It may be however that you need to pay more attention to personal hygiene and you may find wearing pant liners and using our Freshen-up wipes can help keep odour at bay and leave you feeling clean and fresh.

  • I'm 12 and I'm starting to have white stuff in my underwear:( is this normal? Thanks Vicki❀️xx

    This is discharge which is perfectly normal as it works to keep our vaginas clean and free from infection.

  • Hey Vicki!
    It's Tori. A few minutes ago, I found a yellow-brown stain in my underwear. I don't know what it is! I don't know if it came from my vagina or my gludiusmaximus if you know what I mean. I can't figure out what it is because I was wearing dark blue underwear, so I can't figure out if it was my period, discharge or something else. Please help!
    -Tori

    Hi Tori, try not to worry as brown discharge can often present itself as a first period so be sure to ask your mum or guardian to buy some sanitary towels for you and see what happens over the coming weeks and months.

  • I have really bad discharge and wear panty liners but my panty liner often leaks. I don't have my period yet. Do I need to wear a pad and do I need to wear a night pad because my discharge is bad at night as my discharge is bad at night?

    As your discharge is quite heavy, you might like to consider changing your pant liners a little more frequently and using our Lil-Lets teens Freshen-Up wipes which will help to keep you fresh and clean down there.

  • Hy vicki, m 18 years i have not involve myself in sexual intercourse but m worried coz i always see jelly like substance on my panty

    This substance is most likely discharge and your body's way of keeping your vagina clean and healthy. It really is nothing to be worried or anxious about.

  • Hi Vicki, I am 10 and have had discharge for more than 4 months now. All of a sudden it has stopped and I don't know whether that is normal? Thanks xx

    It is very normal for discharge to stop and start from time to time and nothing for you to be worried about.

  • Hi Vicki, I have had discharge for a couple of months now, all of a sudden it has stopped for a couple of days, is this normal?

    This is normal so try not to worry.

  • Hi Vicki,
    I'm 14 and have had my period for over 2 years. but there's been constant heavy discharge for about over a year now.Lately,it has been even heavier and i now have abdominal pain and it is extremely foul smelling,i think someone could possibly smell it beside me!there's a little bit of brown staining as well! I dont know what to do because it's now causing pain!i know this isn't normal!

    Any discomfort should be discussed with your GP. Discharge is very normal in between periods, but if you are noticing a foul odour you may have an infection and this should be checked out by a medical professional.

  • hy vickey i have got my first periods at 18 but after that i have got very heavy discharge . please help me

    Discharge is often noticed in between periods and continue into a girls twenties and is nothing to be worried about.

  • Hi Vicki, how do you know the difference between discharge and soap collecting? How do I find out????

    Discharge is a clear mucus that is produced by the glands found at the entrance to your womb together with normal secretions found naturally on the walls of the vagina. It is normal for it to appear clear, creamy white or yellow when it dries out. As the vagina is self-cleaning, you shouldn't really be using soap directly in to your vagina as it can cause irritation.

  • Hi Vicki
    I had loads of discharge for a few days and now its stopped for almost a week now. I haven't started my period and I'm wondering is this is a sign?
    Katxx

    Hi Kat, try not to worry as it's normal to notice gaps in between releasing discharge.

  • Hi Vicky,
    I have had discharge since July and I have
    Tiny boobs that aren't really noticeable I have pubic hair
    But no armpit hair! My mum won't let me have liners but my discharge
    Is quite heavy and annoying. Why can I do? Also when will I get
    Armpit hair?

    From Layla

    Try to remember that we're all different with bodies that develop at different rates to each other and as you've been releasing discharge since last July, I can only guess that your period isn't too far away. Try to be patient as I'm sure you will notice breast development and armpit hair growth soon.

  • Hi Vicky! I am 14 and I keep finding wet, sticky white discharge in my pants even though I haven't started my period yet. Is it anything to be worried about?! From Olivia x

    Hi Olivia, this discharge is very normal and your body's way of keeping your vagina clean and free from infection. Why not read our section on Discharge under the Puberty tab for more on this subject.

  • Hi Viki I am 11 and I haven't started puberty yet and I am having discharge which is a bit smelly but no irritation so can you have an infection before you have started puberty.no day without it when I look at my pants in the toilet I see a bit dryed up an a wet bit somewhere else so what's happening? Thanks Jess :)

    Hi Jess, now discharge has started it is important to pay extra special attention to hygiene in this area. So make sure you wash every day and you may even find wearing our Lil-Lets teens pant liners and using our Lil-Lets teens freshen-up wipes are great for keeping your feeling fresh and clean during the day.

  • hi, I was out shopping and I felt wetness in the back of my pants so I went to the toilet and there was white patches in the back of my pants.
    is it normal to: get an all of a sudden get a wet feeling in the back of your pants them go to the toilet and notice white patches?
    I went to the toilet before I went shopping and there was nothing there so why as it came all of a sudden?
    please answer!!!! sorry for all the info but I want to find out if it's normal.

    This could be discharge and it very often appears from time to time during the day. It's nothing to worry about and for more on this subject why not check out our Discharge section under the Puberty tab.

  • Okay. Two things x. The first- Sometimes I see these balls of what looks like dry green bogeys stuck to my hair down 'there'. What is this? Secondly- I've had discharge for about 1 and a half years to two years, but these past about 3 days it has stopped completely. What does this mean?
    P.S I'm 11, have had all signs of puberty and your site is amazing :)

    Firstly, the green balls of fluid is dried discharge that has attached itself to the pubic hair and it's nothing to worry about. Nor is your discharge stopping completely from time to time.

  • Is clear discharge different from brown discharge?
    If so, how?

    Thank you

    Discharge is generally a sign that your period has arrived.

  • Hi Vicki,
    So I have been having discharges for a while lately and I was wondering how to identify if it is becoming thicker? I know if it is thick, you are getting close to your period. Does it depend on color? Because mine has been a brownish yellow.

    Discharge can change from day to day and generally once you have been menstruating for a while you will notice the colour is a creamy yellow and thicker, but this is usually once you have several periods.
