Question: 10 yr old Daughter

 Melissa1B - Sun May 01, 2005 1:43 pm

My 10 1/2 yr old Daughter has what she calls air bubbles coming from her vaginal area. She is alway touching herself in that area (on the outside of her clothing) and when I ask her about it she tells me that it feels like bubbles coming out and moving forward. I have never heard of this before so I am just wondering if this is normal or should I take her to her Doctor.

Thanks for your help.

Dear Melissa1B,
If there's no foul smelling, discoloured discharge and there is no associated fever, then it's probably nothing. It sometimes happens with increased vaginal secretions.
