Hi, here's a few things that concern me, i just want to know if it's normal or not.I have discharge every day - normal?My discharge is usually clear as it leaves my body, but dries yellow, and is usually a little thick and creamy, but with no itch, redness, or bad smell. it has been like this as long as i remember since i went on the pill 3 years ago. Normal?Also, 3/4 days after my period ends, i have a brown discharge which lasts only day or two and then goes back to normal. I have read this is just blood that wasnt shed during the period. is this true? 4 days seems a little long...I didnt want to confuse things. I am 20 years old and have been with my partner for 9 months. I had an STD check before we got together which was clear apart from "slight thrush" but i never had any symptoms such as itching, or cottage cheese discharge. I got treatment, but never noticed any significant difference because i didnt know anything was wrong in the first place!! I tend to worry since this happened, so your answers would be much appreciatedThank you xxx
Discharge related questions
All the things you described are normal, so you can stop worrying. Most women have a clear discharge when they're ovulating, that discharge turns to a thick white discharge other times of the month, then as you already mentioned, the discharge after periods (if any) can have a brownish hue to it.You could also track your cycle by the colour and thickness of your cervical discharge if you wanted. It's a good thing to know if you're trying to prevent pregnancy, but I wouldn't recommend using that method by itself.
