"Discharge"

  • I have started to discharge but I only do it every so often is this normal?

    Try not to worry as it is perfectly normal to notice large gaps in between releasing discharge.

  • hi vicki, im 13 and ive beenhaving discharge for about two years now. i dont have any cramps and i usually discharge about six times a day. is that not supposed to happen??
    thank you for your time :)

    Discharge can be released throughout the day and this is all very normal and  you have nothing to be worried about.

  • I have been having discharge for longer than a year the last few months it has been REALLY heavy does this mean my periods coming soon

    The amount of discharge we notice can vary from day to day or month to month and is not always a sign that your period is due any time soon, but it would be a good idea to keep some pads or liners with you from now on when out and about if you have been experiencing discharge for a year or so.

  • Hi Vicki my down below is hairy and I get these har yellowish things that get stuck to my pubic hairs and I don't know what it is I think it might be dried up discharges pls help 💞

    This is discharge which can often attach itself to pubic hair. Why not consider keeping a pack of our wipes in your school or sports bag to help remove this fluid and leave you feeling clean and fresh.

  • Hi Vicki. I think I have plucked up enough courage to tell my mum I've had discharge but I don't know how to tell her I want teens liners. She will just ask how I know about them and I don't know how to tell her about this site. BTW I DON'T want to send her an e card

    There is nothing on this site that your mum cannot view, but if you prefer to not speak to her about the website, you could always say you have seen friends with our liners and pads in school as we do send out samples to schools on a regular basis.

  • Hi viki I have been have discharge for quite a few days I. A row now is my period coming ?

    Discharge can be noticed for between 6-12 months before the arrival of your period so it may now be a good idea to keep some pads and liners with you in your school bag.

  • DOES EVERY GIRL EXPERIENCE BROWN DISCHARGE?

    Not everyone experiences discharge which can be clear or creamy yellow in colour. If you notice brown or red fluid in your underwear this is most likely your period and not discharge at all.

  • is it normal that discharge looks different on different materials of pants- cotton e.t.c

    If discharge is clear and runny it will make the colour of your underwear look a little darker, if it is creamy it will leave almost a ting of yellow or light green to your underwear and this is very normal.

  • Hi
    I have already started my period but I have never had any discharge before. Is that Normal.

    Yes this is fine and very normal, not all girls experience discharge so please try not to worry, we really are all different.

  • I'm 12 and have been having heavy discharge since i started puberty around 4-5th grade. I've had my period for while and discharge still happens. It's really annoying though! Is this normal and will it ever stop?

    Discharge often continues in between periods and can do so into your twenties, for some even longer so please try not to worry this is very normal.

  • Hi viki
    How can you tell if the mark in your underwear is a pee mark or a discharge mark thanks xox

    If this mark is urine it will have quite a strong and unpleasant odour that you do not usually notice when releasing discharge.

  • If you're discharge gets more thick and yellow is it a sign that your period will be arriving soon?
    Thanks so much Vicki! You are soooo helpful! X

    Not necessarily no. Discharge can vary from day to day and can be clear and runny one minute and thick and creamy the next.

  • I'm 14 and haven't started my period yet, but I am constantly getting discharge. Should I wear panty liners?

    If you feel pant liners will leave you feeling clean and fresh for longer then yes wearing them on a daily basis is an excellent idea.

  • Hi viki I have a question on periods
    I have this white discharge in my pants I don't know what do do and it smells a bit plus it is very sticky and uncomfortable it started a couple of weeks ago at school and I'm not sure who to ask so I came to you 😊 thanks x

    Hi, this is discharge and your body's way of keeping your vagina clean and free from infection, you can find out more about this fluid by visiting our Puberty tab.

  • Hi Vikki I keep getting white stains on my pants and it's a bit heavy is it normal to have discharge like this and will get lighter I've been off for about 3 days xxx

    Discharge can be clear or creamy white, it can be runny or thick and it can come and go from day to day, so please try not to worry this is all very normal and nothing to be anxious about. Why not consider using our Lil-Lets teens pant liners for your very heavy days.

  • Hi vicki
    I have had discharge since June/July is and I've had lots of infections down there and I'm not sure why. I wear panty liners and i dont know why I get them. I'm getting really impatient waiting for my period and I just want to start, my mum keeps saying we need to take you to the doctor and I said no because I've seen him all my life and I don't want him to see my girly bits all red and gooey and blah 😕 what shall I do
    Ps:my discharge goes through the liner and over the sides

    The good thing about liners is that you can change them as often as you need to and you might like to consider using Lil-Lets teens wipes as they will keep you feeling fresh and clean down there.  As you've been releasing discharge for quite a while, I would guess that it isn't too far away.

  • Hi Vicki,
    Is it normal to have bright yellow ish and stringy discharge?
    Thanks, Em x

    Hi Em, yes very normal and you will often find that during the month your discharge become stringy and yellow in colour.

  • I told my mum the other day that I get discharge but she didn't suggest a liner to me!!!!
    Also I feel wet after I go to the toilet but I know that it's not wee cuz I stay in the toilet for a while and let all the wee come out and it feels horrible in my pants I hate it!!!! But I don't think that my mum will get me liners!

    If you tell your mum what you just told me, she should agree to you wearing liners.  You might also like to consider using Lil-Lets teens Freshen-Up wipes as they will keep you feeling fresh and clean down there.

  • Hi vicki
    I get lots of discharge and it smells really bad
    What can I do to stop this from happening

    Discharge does have a slight odour, which can often be made worse when mixed with urine, faeces or sweat. So ensure when you visit the toilet you wipe thoroughly from front to back and you may even find using our Lil-Lets freshen-up wipes when in school is useful too.

  • hi vicki.
    I had discharge about a year ago and then it stopped for like a year today I had a short pain in my area and just now I have found a large area of discharge. will my period start soon? thank you ❤️

    It is normal to notice large gaps in between releasing discharge so try not to worry as it is possible for your period to be close.

  • Hi ,today I had some red and brown vaginal discharge, I've been getting discharge for almost a year now. I haven't had my period I'm 12 please help
    Thx

    If this fluid is brown or red in colour then it is most likely your first period and you should share this news with your mum or the person who cares for you.

  • Hi Vicky, I'm 13 years old and have started my period , but only brown stuff when I was 12, it came regular red blood once but that was about two months ago, I haven't got it anymore at all but I always get really heavy discharge but the clear gooey kind and it just feels wet and its very uncomfortable it feels like I'm weeing heavily when it comes out. Should I consider wearing a pad or tampon? Would it help in anyway? Sorry if this was innapropriate x

    Lots of girls wear a pant liner for when their discharge is heavier than usual and this really is a personal choice. And don't worry about the colour of your menstrual fluid, this very often varies from light brown to dark red.

  • Hi Vicki
    Is your period near if you have loads of stringy discharge?
    Thanks
    Rebecca xx

    Hi Rebecca, discharge can vary in texture and colour from time to time and this is not always a sign that your period is due any time soon.

  • Hi vikki I've been getting discharge for ages and it gets everywhere I get it every day and it is really irritating is this normal

    It is normal for a lot of discharge to be produced from time to time and nothing for you to be overly concerned about. However you may find our Lil-Lets teens pant liners are a great product to use on a daily basis to keep you feeling clean and fresh.

  • Hi Vicki I am 13 I have had my period for 2 years I have discharge that is white/see through when will it go?

    It is normal to release discharge throughout your menstrual cycle so try not to worry.  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 and it works to keep our vaginas clean and free of infection.

  • Hi,the other night I woke up in the morning with my pj shorts soaked in the middle it wasn't blood or pee and I havent told anyone?! Help?! btw I'm 12

  • Hi vicki I got brown discharge 3 months ago and haven't had it since what is this
    Love kailey x

    Hi Kailey, brown discharge can often present itself as first period but in the early stages of the menstrual cycle, 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 be sure to ask your mum for some pads and see what happens over the coming weeks and months.

    Hi Hermione, it is normal for discharge to have a slight odour and you might find that using pant liners and Lil-Lets teens Freshen-Up Wipes will help keep you feeling fresh and clean down there.

  • Hi Vicki,
    So earlier I went to the loo and got loads of discharge, it was te gooey type that makes you feel wet down there (sorry if that was innapropriate). I was just wondering if it is normal to get loads of gooey discharge that it wet and clear/sometimes really yellow?
    Thanks so much, you're page really helps! X

    Hi, discharge can vary from day to day, one day possibly clear and runny, the next cream yellow and thick, this is all very normal and nothing to be worried about.

  • Hey Vicki

    Light brown discharge can often be a sign that your period has arrived and you should share this news with your mum or the person who cares for you.

    Discharge is a great sign that your period is not too far away and my advice would be to keep some pads and liners with you from now on when out and about.

  • Hey Vicki, i am 12 and I have had dark brown discharge for about 2 days. Then on the third day it changed colour to a light brown, and now, the fourth day it is absolutely clear and stretchy, more like mucus. Is this normal or is this an infection? Please answer
    thank you :-)

    This brown fluid was almost certainly your first period as menstrual fluid is often brown and not red in colour, so please share this news with your mum or the person who cares for you.
