What is discharge?

Vaginal discharge. You may have heard it mentioned. It’s the fluid that's produced by your body to moisten and cleanse the vagina. Before your first period, you'll probably notice yellow or white stains inside your underwear. This is your vaginal discharge. It's perfectly normal and it's a sign that you’ll probably start having periods soon. Here are some basics about vaginal discharge.

How much discharge should I have?

The amount of vaginal discharge varies during the menstrual cycle. This is due to the changing levels of estrogen circulating in your body. When estrogen levels are at their highest, your discharge can become a bit heavier.

Your discharge may be heavy or barely noticeable – both are normal. However, if it has a bad smell or you have any pain, soreness or itching in the genital area, it may be a sign of infection. In this case, make sure you see a doctor.
