I may just be paranoid but I feel as if I've been having random "spurts" of discharge this month. I get my period in 4 days but I have noticed the past two weeks that I have had more clear discharge. It happens in the day and night. It sort of gets to be a pain in the butt somedays because it gets my underwear wet. What could it be?
Having some amount of vaginal discharge is normal, especially if you are of childbearing age. Glands in the cervix produce a clear mucus. These secretions may turn white or yellow when exposed to the air. These are normal variations.
The amount of mucus produced by the cervical glands varies throughout the menstrual cycle. This is normal and depends on the amount of estrogen circulating in your body. It is also normal for the walls of the vagina to release some secretions. The amount depends on hormone levels in the body.
Vaginal discharge that suddenly differs in color, odor, or consistency, or significantly increases or decreases in amount, may indicate an underlying problem like an infection.
