Do you know when you ovulate? Ovulation discharge is thick and milky and usually happens in the middle of your cycle.
I doubt that it's sperm, because it drips out that day, and not a few days after.
Kind of silly to say... But sometimes this happens... Maybe you might get turned on somehow and when your body is turned on it gets wet, wether there is sex or not. You could be at work sitting in a desk, have a naughty thought, or reminise about the night before and get turned on and get a few drips on your panties. *blush*
Getting really wet during sex is perfectly fine.
It's not uncommon to have to stop, wipe off, and continue. It happens. It's your anatomy. And if the discharge dosnt company pain or bad smell, then you should be fine.
Also, when you reach the big 'O' it releases a ton of fluids and you're slipping and sliding all over him. lol. feels so silly talking about this but thats how things happen.

The previous advice is accurate.  But increased discharge, even if it otherwise seems normal (clear or white, etc) often is due to a vaginal or cervical infection, such as chlamydia.  A pretty high proportion of young women get chlamydia from their first sex partner, unless he was also a virgin.  It would be smart to see a health care provider.

Any discharge that is either clear or white is completely normal.  You have nothing to worry about.  :-)

The type of discharge changes throughout your monthly cycle.  Some clear/white discharge is present right after your period and then you might notice a lot of clear mucus that is like egg-whites (or snot).  This present right before and during ovulation.  It is your most fertile mucus.  Then after ovulation it changes to milky white and then sticky white and then you get your period.

Timing and amount is variable from woman to woman.  You will notice an increase in discharge when you are sexually active.  Anything that is yellow or itchy or smelly is not normal and is a sign of infection.

Good luck and I hope this helps!

I just noticed that I have a clear discharge right after sex. It has happened only about twice and it always happens during and right after sex. It is usually allot to the point where I can actually feel it coming out. There is no odor, itch or anything like that. As mentioned before this only happens during and after sex. Its so much that when it dries (lets say on a leg for instance) it turns into a white flake. Please help me I am in my 20's and I am really worried. Please give me any advice you can offer.

It's probably "female lubrication" that is produced during foreplay/intercourse to aid the sperm in reaching it's goal--the egg (regardless of whether or not you're using a condom).

I had this clear discharge to the point where it felt as if I was peein on my self. Sometimes when I wake up in middle of the night my panties are wet nd I thought maybe I had an infection. But there was no smell or itch. I went to the docter nd turns out I'm 9 weeks pregnant.

I had sex for the first time, unprotected. It didn't last long, but now i'm getting a whiteish clear discharge. I'm really scared. Is it possible that this means I'm pregnant? Please help me (:

Ok here is a puzzler. I have always had extra discharge from as far back as my first time having sex almost 4 years ago. I mean the sky is blue and Im discharging. My last pap exam came back normal although the doc said I was discharging like Im trying to get pregnant. What worries me is I hadnt been sexually active and havent since I lost my virginity up until a few days and now I'm discharging light cloudy liquid like a damn broke or something. There is no itch or odor as always. Its just there. Thoughts anyone? I really need help!

I just had sex for the first time 2 days ago. The next day I also had discharge..most of it was white but there was some like red in it too. We used protection and everything. Is it possible that it was my "cherry popping" since it was the first time? I am not sure what to think and I do not know who to ask since all of my friends are still young and inexperienced. I'm a bit nervous.

i had unprotected sex a week ago, I am on the pill but forgot to take it the day I had sex. The next day I took two birth control pills. My partner did not *** inside me but I am still afraid I may be at risk for pregnancy. I have been discharging a lot these past few days and am scared it's a symptom that I am pregnant. If anyone has any advice, please help me. Also how soon can I take a pregnancy test?

please help, am really confused.
me and my wife have had few marital problems lately due to financial and family related problems.
she works at the local hospital, since last two years, everything was fine, in life as well as sexual activities.
it's her attitude towards me over the year which has made me confused, to which this problems relate to.
she has diabetes, type 2, just like me,and she denies me of sexual favours almost all the time.
it's then when i felt something was wrong, and had to investigate.
the matter is i've been checking her underclothes to look for any clues and i've noticed that the nikers she goes to work is almost always soiled when she comes back at night.
most of the times there is white discharge,thick one in the middle and runs of the fragments around the middle region, which seems to flake off after it's dried and becomes chalky like appearance.
i feel there is also semen like shiny like droplets on certain part of the pants( not sure but only judging this because when i used to have sex with her, and i used to put my pants on again at night, there used to be droplets of semen stuck on pants which the next day would have shiny effects on pants and then fade away to chalky like appearance)
please someone explain what this means for me, is she cheating me or is this normal in female cycle.
she is 44 years old and her attitude towards me have really changed in sexual and physical ways.
she used to give me blow jobs readily,but now totally gone off it,her needs for sexual performance seems harder penetrations, not like before.
PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME IN A CLEAR, CONCISE MANNER,EXPLAINING ON EVIDENCES AS TO WHAT IT ALL MEANS.
MANY THANKS.

Based on what I've read, I think you should bring this up to your wife because it's healthy to voice your concerns. And if she's not being honest with you then maybe you guys should seek counseling. Also, does she take any medications? because i know some antidepressants can lessen your sex drive, so that could be it....
Also, where does she work and does she ever come home telling you stories about guys at work? it's the little details that will help you figure this out....... I'm sad to hear that her sex drive has gone down, but from experience i have cheated in a relationshiip before and it made me less sexually attracted to my boyfriend.. until i cut all ties to the other guy....
that's all I can really think of
best of luck!

it may be that you have a vaginal infection that needs to be treated by your doctor. sometimes vginal infections are caused from having sex carried by our partners. what you need to do is go talk to your doctor and get treated. hope everything is ok.

Your wife is 44-that's around the time my mom entered pre menopause. She continued having her period, but began feeling the symptoms of menopause. This could effect her natural cycle-resulting in the discharge you had found in her underwear, as well as decreasing her desire to have sex. Best advice would be to talk to her. However, I do not recommend asking her if she is menopausal as this could be very offensive.

I had sex but a day later I saw clear and a little white discharge before I got in the shower. Next day my period came. It was a tad bit heavier but lasted the regular amount of time. Once it was over I had sex again. Now I have itching but feels like a yeast infection. I thought of the white stuff and now the itching. Do you think iys a yeast infection?

The white milky discharge means your going to begin or your in the middle of ovulation. As long as it doesnt have a smell or it doesnt itch your fine :) No need to worry. I have this App on my phone..its called My Days...it looks like a red and purple flower...It helps keep track of your period, ovulation and when your most fertile. You can also keep track of when u have sex..just in case u miss your period and your worried your preggo...if you have an android phone or an Iphone you should look into getting it..its been very very helpful to me :) Tell your friends about it 2!

sweets you might have an bacterial infection it is best to just get this checked out an treated before any damage could possible be done, i experienced somewhat of the same thing but in the end i lost my baby i don't want to scare you but just tell you if you see anything on your body or something happening to your body that doesn't seem normal to you  GO TO THE DOCTOR just to make sure

I really dont want an STI can someone please reassure me or let me know, clinic isn't open for a few days and I have a phobia of doctors/ hospitals the clinic is scary enough xxx

I had sex with my bf 2 weeks ago and it was a week before i was ovulating and i was pretty dry for the most part but after we finished i looked down and saw a ton of a watery looking blueish white but still transparent stuff in me. He put on a condom and i inserted spermicide but before we did it i inserted an encare spermicide insert went to the restroom to go urinate and i felt as if it was all running out of me as i was urinating in his bathroom and after i wiped up from using the restroom we had sex.
after the night was over we both got worried and i felt a slight tingling sensation (i dont know if this was just caused from worry because thats happened to me before and i ended up not being pregnant)
since i was worried i inserted another insert about 10 or 15 minutes after we saw the discharge. Could it have been mine or his? because i have a tendency to squirt a lot while having sex but im still wondering because like i said above i was pretty dry before we had sex.

Immediately seek care that just means that you vaginal area is infected.  When you have soreness or swollen and a discharge that means your sex pattern is not clean and spreading her or his bacteria to your vaginal or penis area that's why its important to use protection at all times and also making sure your partner is clean

Just wondering.. My bfs condom broke and I am not on birth control for medical reasons. We have a son we couldn't be more proud of, but we wanted to wait a few years before the second. I am wondering if anyone ended up pregnant from having sex on day 7 of their cycle? I have a really irregular cycle, the last one was 39 days and I'm pretty sure I ovulated twice last month. Yesterday was when the condom broke and today I am getting ovulation discharge... Which is waaay too early. Ive also been cramping since the incident. Anyways, I was just curious.
