    Hi Grace, yes this is discharge which is nothing to worry about as it is perfectly normal.  Discharge is a clear mucus that is produced by the glands found at the entrance to the womb together with normal secretions found naturally on the walls of the vagina.  it works to keep our vaginas clean and freee of infection and tells us that our bodies are getting ready for when our period arrives.  You might like to consider using Lil-Lets teens Liners as they will help to protect you not only from the effects of discharge but also from possible leakage should your period arrive.

  • Hey I'm suzzanna
    I've had discahrge for just a week and its got quite heavy should I use a tampon?? Xx

    Hi Suzzanna, you should only ever use tampons to absorb mentrual blood as inserting a tampon dry can cause tiny tears to appear on the walls of the vagina which might lead to infection.  Lil-lets teens liners are ideal for keeping you feeling fresh and clean down there  so why not give them a try,.

  • Hi Vicki
    I have realy bad discharge and I sometimes refer to it as a swamp.
    I'm going into yr six and would like to use liners, but we have one bin in the toilets, but it is always busy because the toilets are so small, also would I still be able to use my liner if I place it in my bra strap to sneak it in the bathroom ( can bacteria get through the wrappings)
    Thanks
    Ps: thanks for ansering my question on the girl who has started her period and leaves me out xxx❤️❤️❤️

    There is no reason why you cannot wear just one liner throughout the day and you may find one of the longer liners a suitable product to try.

  • hi vikki

  • Hi Vicki,
    I am 13 and have been having discharge everyday for 2years+. But over the past week it has been every other day and when I have had it I have to change my liner up to three times a day and when am swimming I have to get out and wipe my bikini coz of the discharge. Should I be worried by this? and Why is it doing this? Thanks from me 123xx

    Discharge can vary in colour, texture and the amount produced, so try not to worry this is all very normal and I am sure your period will be with you very soon...maybe even by the end of the year.

  • Hi Vicki, i am 12 and i have had discharge for about a year or so, but not my first period yet. Is there a way to know when i will finally get my first period? Thanks :P

    No one can predict the exact date your period will arrive, but discharge is a good indication that it is not too far away, so be patient and see what the rest of this year or early next year brings.

  • Hey Vicky
    You see I was wondering wether taking medication such as asprin paracetamol or being ill can effect the amoun of discharge you produce because I took some Imodium and asprin as I was feeling bloated and I found a lot if discharge
    from hazel

    Hi Hazel, no medication will have any impact on your discharge, this would just have been a coincidence as discharge can vary from day to day and is caused by fluctuating hormones.

  • Hi viki
    (I am 11)I have been having discharge for about a week and a half now and have been wearing liners everyday. I have told mum about it she told me to start wearing liners. But yesterday it was really heavy and I am anxious to tell her sould I talk to her I normally do but I feel strange about telling her, sometimes I like to right her a note and put it in her drawer.
    What sould I do?

    Discharge can often vary in colour, texture and the amount produced and there is no need to speak to your mum about this if you do not wish to, she will understand and keep wearing the liners to keep both you and your underwear clean and fresh.

  • Heyy Vicki
    well my discharge started and is making a small mark in my panties.. What do I do? I'm so worried!! XOXO

    Try wearing pant liners on a daily basis, they are ideal for keeping both you and your underwear clean and fresh.

  • Heyy Vicki!!
    before periods is it normal to get white jelly kind of thing? when I ask my mom she feels so uncomfortable talking about sexual health.. BTW thanks a lot for your help!!

    This thicker jelly substance is called discharge and a very normal part of being a healthy woman, so please try not to worry.

  • Dear Vicki,

    Hi! I just recently got alot of dicharge but I haven't got my period yet. I've had discharge for a year now but I just recently got alot. Does this mean I going to get my period soon?

    If so can you please answer back right away I would really like to know what going on in my body?
    Thanks for understanding,
    Shortie<3

    Hi Shortie, discharge can vary from day to day in colour, texture and the amount produced. Excessive discharge is not a sign that your period is due any day soon, but it does mean it is doing its job of cleaning our vagina and keeping it free from infection.

  • Hey Vicki. I'm just wondering. Shouldn't I have discharge already? I have hair down there, buds and a little bit of armpit hair. I'm confused.

    Not everyone notices discharge or ever experiences it, but you may find that you start to see this fluid this year and about a year before the arrival of your periods.

  • Hey I've had discharge for 3-4 months now (haven't started period) and my discharge started having a red hue and was very liquidy and I just want an idea on whether it's bad or not

    If your discharge is red or brown then this is most likely the start of your first period. Many people think that their periods will be bright red, but this is not always the case. So have a chat to your mum and share this news with her.

  • I have had discharge for nearly 4 months and on the school plastic chairs I get like theses little triangle of sweat and my pants always seem to be soaked

    Plus I don't seem to sleep does all this mean my period is coming

    Pant liners are great for not only capturing discharge but also to avoid those little sweat marks us girls sometimes experience, it is more than likely the warm weather that is causing you disturbed sleep too.

  • Hi vicki I was wondering when you have discharge do you have to change your knickers

    The choice is yours but discharge can become quite hard when it dries out so can be quite uncomfortable.  Many prefer to keep their underwear fresh and clean by wearing pant liners as they can be changed as little or as often as you like.

  • I've been having a discharge a lot lately does it mean I have a yeast infection

    Not necessarily no.  A yeast infection is easily identified by the presence of a thick creamy discharge that ressembles cottage cheese, it would be uncomfortable to urinate and your vagina would be swollen and itchy.

  • Hey Vicki,
    H here. I was wondering if it's normal for some girls not to have discharge because I don't remember ever having discharge. But I had my 1st period last year. I've read that it's normal for girls to have discharge for 6-12 months before their 1st period, but it wasn't like that for me. I have never seen discharge in my underwear before. Is it weird?
    Thanks xx

    There are always exceptions to the rule so try not to worry.

    I am 14 and had my period for a year now and ive just got this white discharge.. Does this mean my period is coming?

  • Hi Vicki,
    I have a few questions:1. I'm not sure if I have discharge or it's just wee, it's like a pale yellow and I get it every so often and if it is discharge then I would like to start using liners but I'm not sure how to ask my mum but I don't want to send her an e-card cos it will still be awkward.
    Thanks dancer123

    Hi Dancer123, it is normal for discharge to appear yellow when it dries out so try no to worry and remember that your mum was a young girl going through puberty once so you shouldn't feel embarrassed asking her if you can wear liners.

  • Hi Vicki!
    I really like this site as it has helped me so much! I have been having discharge for almost 5 months. Sometimes when I go to the toilet, my umderwear is wet but it's clear and not white or yellow. Is this clear discharge or is this me being sexually excited? Please help!

  • Hi Vicki,
    I have been finding clear sticky stuff in my pants, I think it's discharge but am not sure as there is only a small amount. Is it discharge? Also about a year and a half ago I had a chest infection and during this there was a small bit of what I think was blood in my pants and nothing has happened since. Was it period blood or just caused by the chest infection? Thank you

  • Over the past two days I had Vaginal Discharge. Does that mean I will get my period soon and how long will it take?

    Vaginal discharge can often be noticed for up to a year before the arrival of your period, so it would be a good idea to keep some pads and liners with you from now on.

  • hey vicki i am getting stomach cramps but i'm not releasing discharge
    WHATS WRONG WITH ME
    fron girlie girl

    Hi Girlie girl, not everyone experiences discharge so please don't worry.

  • I have this really wierd smell coming from my vagina and every time I open my legs you can smell it really strongly.

    It may be a mixture of sweat, discharge and urine. So ensure you keep this area clean on a daily basis by washing twice a day and maybe even using a Lil-Lets teeens freshen-up wipe after visiting the toilet.

  • Hey Vicki,
    I started my period around Easter and before that I had discharge for about six months. And ever since I have had discharge everyday. I don't know if this is normal because normally you have discharge just before you period but I have mine straight the day after my period and then I have it everyday until I start my period.
    Please reply if possible

    Discharge is noticed before, after and in between your periods and can continue until your twenties.

  • I have had discharge since I was 11, and I haven't started my period yet, I really want to because I feel really 'undeveloped' compared to all my other friends, im 13 btw,'down there' dosent smell good, what should I do?please answer thank you x

    Discharge can often be noticed for longer than a year but you should not worry, your period is not too far away and it's really not a competition between you and your friends, so be patient and consider washing this area daily, wearing pant liners or wiping after visiting the toilet with our Lil-Lets Freshen up wipes.

    My discharge seems to be coming out more yellow rather than white, I've had discharge for over a year, and it's also coming out a lot trickier😩 I've got panty liners but I don't wear them all the time, should I start wearing them more now my discharge is coming out thinker?
    Thank you☺️

    You can wear pant liners if you feel they will keep you feeling clean and fresh and don't worry about the colour; discharge can often be clear or creamy yellow and this can change from day to day.

  • Can you still have discharge after you have started your period and how do you know whether it is abnormal

    Discharge is often noticed in between your periods and can continue into your twenties and this is very normal indeed.

  • Hi Vicki! I'm nearing thirteen and I've been seeing discharge in my panties for at least a year and a half (I do not have my period.). But now it's starting to smell bad and I've a also been getting very itchy down there. I'm not sure if the irritation is from my pubic hair, or if I have an infection or something. Help? It's getting embarrassing when my mom does the wash:|

    It could be an infection, or simply odour caused by sweating, after all it is very warm nowadays. So why not consider wearing a pant liner on a daily basis and washing in this area twice a day. If this does not stop the odour or irritation then have a chat to your mum who will pop you along to your doctor for a chat.

  • Hey Vicki!
    I'm 12 years old. I've been having discharge for quite awhile , does that mean I'll be getting my period soon? And I also get yellow stains sometimes is that a sign too?

    Thanks, Xoxo Lucy

    Discharge is often yellow in colour, especially when it dries and is an excellent sign that your period is not too far away.

  • I really need your help because I have been getting discharge for this past 3 months now but it's starting to get heavier so I would like to start using panty liners, I'm just not sure how to ask my mummy for some as she doesn't use them and I'm afraid she may laugh at me or say no. But I'm nearly 14 now, what's the usual age for starting to wear panty liners? And what exactly should I ask my mummy?
    Love, Margaret

    Hi Margaret, there is not specific age to start wearing liners it really is up to you. Why not ask your mum if you can request a free sample from me and I am sure once she sees how much you like our liners and feel confident wearing them she will purchase some for you.

  • Hi Vicki!
    I'm Trinity and I'm turning 12 in 7 days! For about a year and a couple month I've been getting discharge. They past month or so it been really sticky and gooey, also a lot more than usual. Does this mean that I'm going to get my period soon?
    and I'm physically active. Should I use pads or tampons? If so, any brand I should use?
    Thank You So Much!! 😘
    Love, Trinity

    Hi Trinity, the amount, colour and texture of discharge can vary from day to day and this increase you have noticed is not a sign that your period is due any day soon, but is a very good sign that your body is preparing for it to arrive at some time in the future.
