I'm only thirteens years old. I have not had my period, and i have not been sexually active. I have this white or yellow goo leak from my vigina (vagina). I've heard everyone call it a discharge. But what is it and why is it happening? Its very uncomfortable and i want it to stop. So can someone please find a real answer for me!?
Please i'm really scared help me.
Girls usually experience vaginal discharge about 6 months before they experience their first periods. It's caused by the changing hormones in your body---and will be with you until (and sometimes after) menopause, which won't come until you're about 50-ish.
Completely normal, and healthy. The discharge keeps your vagina healthy and clean. In case you're wondering, it's supposed to have a slight odor.
You should only worry if the vaginal discharge turns green, brown, or gray in colour.
thank you i hope u are right i was afraid and people just kept callling it a vaginal discharge and wouldnt explain wat it was and why it was happening i hope u r right thank you very much u helpful womenm!!!!!!
Vaginal discharge happens during puberty. It comes from your 'virginia' (you know what i mean). It can be white and appears yellowish on your undies. It ususally comes before your period. If you dont like the feeling, try wearing pantiliners, [if you have the guts to ask your mom for some].
If it is brown, green, itchy, burny, swollen, then u have an infection.
