Ok, so vaginal discharge is a little icky. But all grossness aside, it’s actually amazing stuff. It’s your body’s natural way to keep that tissue moist and
cleansed. Find out where the stuff comes, why it’s there and how to keep it contained!
Where Does Vaginal Discharge Come From?
It’s pretty simple. The inside of your vagina is covered in something called a mucous membrane — a type of body tissue that’s naturally lubricated. Glands
in your body produce clear mucus that turns white or yellow when exposed to air — also perfectly normal.
How Much is Normal?
The amount of discharge you’ll experience fluctuates with your menstrual cycle. Having a varying amount of vaginal discharge is completely normal.
The amount of discharge in your vagina varies during your menstrual cycle. It fluctuates as the levels of estrogen in your body change. When estrogen
levels are at their highest, discharge can become heavier. It can also vary in consistency (thick, pasty or thin), color (clear, cloudy, white, yellow or
green), and smell (normal, odorless or bad).
What if it Changes?
If your vaginal discharge suddenly changes in color, odor or consistency, it may be a sign of an infection. Talk to your doctor. They’re your best resource
to help you diagnose and treat the problem.
