It could be possibly from a sexual transmitted disease, if you have a watery discharge (maybe the reason your underwear is damp) could mean genital herpes, often herpes is not visable in women and only the change is discharge is noticed. Atrophic vaginitis also has a watery discharge but usally occurs in women who are post-menopausal or have had their ovaries removed.
Or it could be Bacterial vaginosis which has a strong odor but usually has white or grey watery discharge. Best thing is to go to the OB/GYN.

ok thanks! so I actually had a PAP last week but was a little embarrassed to ask the doctor face to face (cause it just seems really gross). Are any of these things something that would show up in the testing? Or is this something I should go back and get specialized tests for?
I would think they would show up in the Pap but if everything comes back normal you may want to go in and talk to the doctor just in case.
A pap only test for cancer... sometimes they can see yeast.. but aside from that no. You need to get a culture to test for STD's. you need to go back to the Dr. Dont be embarassed Drs have seen everything!! good luck
I agree with lisapep. Don't be embarrassed one iota. Doctors have seen it all, heard it all. It's good that you're aware of your body and any variations in vaginal smell. You should definitely bring it to their attention.
