 worried_wonder - Sun Jul 18, 2004 12:32 am

To whom it may concern,
I'm just posting a question about a question I've been wonering about lately. Here it is.. I'm 13, and have NEVER had sex, or done anything where i could recieve a STD. I've been having an amount of vaginal discharge that makes me panties wet at times. It bugs me more then anything. It dosen't hurt, or smell that bad. I'm just wodering if somethings wrong, or if there anyway i can lessen the amount?

User avatar Hi wonder!
Its part of the normal hormonal process during puberty. Many girls have a white, sticky discharge from their vaginas. This is a perfectly normal sign that the changes of puberty have begun. Sometimes, this discharge gets on a girl's underwear. She shouldn't worry about it unless her vulva becomes itchy or irritated. If it does, she should visit her doctor or clinician.
