its possible to still have vaginal discharge even if you do clean yourself everyday and normally its nothing to worry about unless it has a strong foul or fishy odor or if it causes burning. then you should see a doctor. if it's like cottage cheese you might just have a yeast infection.

How old are you? What part of your cycle are you in?  Is discharge unusual for you?  Need alittle more background info to really give any substantial advice.

to the girl above, i think you have a yeast infection. tell your mom and she'll get it taken care of!

Hyper Girl, how long has it been since you missed your period? It can be stress that's delaying it. You're a virgin so I wouldnt worry about it too much. I would let my mom know if I were you about the white gunky stuff you said. It really does sound like a yeast infection and your mom will know what to do. I honestly dont thing the two are related but make sure to bring both things us when you notify your mom.

In my lifetime I've never missed a period over a yeast but not to say it couldnt happen. This is a perfect question to ask your mom and doctor when you see one.  Hope it's nothing big and keep us informed. I am going to have a girl this time around and I would hope she could talk to me about these things too.

The only time I had a jelly like substance come down was when my mucus plug started to come apart and soon after i went into labor. But this is def not your case since you're not pregnant. I would ask the dr about it.

I know it isnt a yeast infection cuz i have had a yeast infection, and it itched and burned and it wasnt clear it was a cottage cheese looks substance please help me!!!

white cottage cheese discharge could mean a yeast infection, and some infections can cause you problems with the female organs if left untreated a long time.  Yeast infection creams can be bought over the counter at walgreens, also you can now buy yeast infection kits to see if you have a yeast infection.  Also you can always go to planned parenthood where they see teen girls and get a check up.  If under 18 its best that you at least keep that open communication with one of your parents and let them no what is going on so they can help, sometimes at a young age, most girls are not intune with there bodies and over look a lot of things.

For the clear sticky discharge that comes out the vagina, if it seems llike that slim you can buy in the 25 cent machine and throw it on the wall and watch it stick to wall, that is normal.  That is a mucus plug that comes down during the time you ovulate, you are fertile at that time, and it lets you no, soon that your cycle will be starting a week later.  I am 32 years old, i didnt start learning ab out my body until i was 20, but it is a wonderful thing to no your body and you should all take the time out to no your body if you dont. For example, i no when im ovulating from change in cervical mucus, my vaginal secrections change when i am very horny or in heat, i no if i am getting a yeast infection before i get the cottage cheese symptom, actually that is the last stage and you just ignored the other symptoms, its important to no these things.  so do some research and keep a little book and chart down things, like when your period starts and ends. if it was differnt one month, pay attention to your vaginal secretions, how they look feel and smell, it dont hurt to smell yourself, its your body. I hope this have helped, im not trying to put anyone down, im just talking from experience, and not to add, i have been a nurse since i was 22 years old.  It would not feel right if i didnt say this, please make sure for the young ladies who are not married that the guy uses a condom if you decide to have sex, birthcontrol pills dont protect you from sexually transmitted diseases.  And you dont want nothing you cant get rid of.  I look at sex like this, if the guy or woman is so eager to give it up, one, they dont respect there body, 2 they must have something they are trying to give me, especially if they are trying to convience me that we should not use a condom.  Have a nice and blessed day, hope this information will at least educate one person that reads this.         ***@****
