    discharge concern

    Hi, I am a thirteen year old female with a concern of discharge. Ever since spring break, I realized that my discharge had a sour smell to it. Keep in mind it is now july and the same problem is going on. The discharge itself is not off color, it is white and a normal consistency. I've recently gone to a doctor to see if they could find any problem, but they said my pH levels were normal. I shower every day, I don't know what is wrong!

    RE: discharge concern

    You might have a yeast infection. Google it. If any of those symptoms fit you, you can go to a drug store and get Monostat. Try wearing clean cotton underwear because synthetic underwear or underwear that is too tight can help yeast flourish in your vijay so try wearing clean cotton underwear. Also, if you wear tight shorts or jeans, try wearing looser clothing like skirts! This will allow natural air flow in. Also, try probiotic yogurt....

    RE: discharge concern

    Hi what is below is just a normal out put all about discahrges.

    It is normal to have some vaginal discharge, because the vagina stays moist as part of its self-cleansing mechanism. The normal moist discharge clears dead cells and bacteria from the vagina. It comes mainly from glands in the cervix (the neck of the womb), and is slightly acidic, which helps to keep infections at bay. The acidity results from lactic acid, formed by friendly bacteria as they break down sugars.
    On average, a woman discharges from her vagina about 2 grams of dead cells and about 3 grams of mucus every day, but the amount of normal discharge varies from woman to woman, and with the menstrual cycle. Many women notice that, during the week following a period, there is hardly any discharge, and what there is has a thick consistency. Towards the middle of the cycle (about 2 weeks after the start of a period) the amount increases and it becomes thin, slippery and clear, like uncooked egg white. When this discharge is exposed to the air, it becomes brownish-yellow, so it is normal to find a yellowish stain on your knickers in the middle of the monthly cycle. There may also be a feeling of moistness and stickiness. Normal discharge does not smell, and does not cause any irritation or itching.
    Discharge also increases during pregnancy. And during sexual excitement, vaginal discharge becomes very profuse because two glands near the vaginal opening (Bartholin's glands) secrete additional slippery mucus, which acts as a lubricant for intercourse.

    OK So do we take your not having sex yet? sorry but has to be asked, are you using fem pads, if so stop, when you shower just use a very mild soap for your vaginal area, wear lose cotton nickers and of a night time do sleep naked, when you can do go commando, Keep out of trousers, jeans, leggings, and tights, do this for a few weeks and see how things go.

    The only thing it could be is you are having a very mild kind of a YI yeast infection, that wont go away, have you tried any over the counter meds? if you have and its still there google natural yeast infection remedies as some women find these are best.
