11 Important Things Your Vaginal Discharge Can Reveal About Your Health


It is in reality obvious that it is somewhat gross to consider it, yet
focusing on your vaginal release can uncover some critical data to you.


The discharge from your genital organ may change during your monthly
cycle, so you might notice some difference in the texture, the color,
consistency, amount and also the smell, as Doctor Scott, an ob-gyn an
Indiana University Health has noticed. What is most noticeable from
these changes that happen is what happens during your ovulation. When
preparating to help the sperm reach the egg, this discharge from the
vagina tends to become thin and slippery and also stretchy like egg
whites, she explained. And so,  in case you are trying to get pregnant,
the best time to make love is when you start noticing this type of


Because of the fact that the vaginal discharge is very related to
hormonal fluctuations, it is actually no surprise that pregnancy, nine
months of one big hormonal fluctuation, may increase it. Therefore, many
pregnant woman have an increase in discharge and it can take on a white
yellow tinge, as Dr. Scott said. The following are some skin and beauty
surprises that can happen during pregnancy.


I fit is that you are pregnant and suddenly notice an uptick in
mucousy discharge, congrats,  because you are about to have a baby! That
is because the cervix dilates in preparation for delivery, and the
mucous discharge increases and might mean labor is beginning , and  some
women even experience a large portion of discharge, often referred to
as the mucous plug. You do not need to get too excited just yet as the
beginning stages of labor can take a long time and days, and sometimes
even weeks. If you are having a lot of mucous coming out of your
 genital organ, talk to your doctor and he or she will be able to give
you a say of how close your labor is.


Many of us women are trained from puberty to recognize the hallmark
signs of a yeast infection: Burning Itching, and that telltale cottage
cheese-like vaginal discharge. What is more, yeast is not the only type
of bad bug that can take up residence in your lady parts, Dr. Scott
said. The bacterial vaginosis is hugely common bacterial infection
characterized by vaginal discharge that is kind of white-gray in its
color and has a noticeable fishy odor. And if you have any of the above
symptoms or notice some kind of itching, pain, swelling, or just a
marked change in your genitals, immediately make an appointment in order
to get checked for infections, she added.


Chlamydia and gonorrhea are two sexually transmitted diseases that
are reaching epidemic proportions in these days, and these can cause
your vaginal discharge to change in color, amount, or smell. What is
very sad is that, many times than not these two are asymptomatic, which
means  that you will not know you have them until they show up on a
test. (This is one more reason to stay on top of your yearly check-ups.)
There exists one STD however, that makes a major mark in your undies: Trichomoniasis is
characterized by yellow-green discharge, according to Dr. Scott. For
the record, the word  frothy is never a word you want associated with
your genitals.


The most common and noticeable side effects of good foreplay is a
boost in wetness in your vagina. These vaginal fluids will act as a
sexual lubricant, Dr. Scott said, so as a woman becomes aroused she may
notice an increase in thin, clear liquid. It is absolutely nothing to
worry about and, due tot he fact that it can increase comfort and
pleasure, it might be the one type of vaginal discharge to really get
excited about! Here you have the 31 natural libido boosters to help you have better sex.


What will make your breath smell certainly may make your vaginal
discharge smell, Dr. Scott noted, and this one includes
good-for-your-body-but-bad-for-your-breath staples like onions, garlic,
hot peppers, and asparagus. What is more, a good workout will make you
smell like sweat everywhere, and especially in your crotch area. None of
these smells are anything to worry about, she further added.


Dehydration can cause your urine to turn a darker yellow, so can make
your vaginal discharge take on a yellowish tinge, Dr. Scott notes. She
says that sometimes urine will mix with discharge, on toilet paper or in
your underwear—which will also give the discharge a yellow
color. Intake more water and you’ll be fine.


A number of the existing cancers, even those of the female
reproductive system, will not have any effect on vaginal secretions, Dr.
Scott adds. But, there is actually one rare form of fallopian tube
cancer that is always characterized by a large increase in watery
discharge. It is actually not so common that you have this type of
cancer but any time you notice a marked change in the amount or type of
your vaginal discharge it’s time to call your doctor, she stated. These
are a few cancer symptoms that women are likely to ignore.


Being in this state  can make you feel like you are possessed by
hormonally belligerent aliens, so they don’t call it the big change for
nothing! Therefore, one of the things that will for certain change is
your vaginal discharge, Dr. Scott adds. It will become a lot drier, and
also lessen in amount and might make you more susceptible to infection,
she further explained. This was just one more part of womanhood no one
warns you about!


Many of us  females do not know what normal vaginal discharge looks
like, and will therefore become unnecessarily worried, Doctor Scott
says. What is usually meant to be normal, will vary from woman to woman
but in general discharge will be clear mid-cycle and turn white right
before your period but it is quite important to pay attention to how it
changes throughout your cycle so you understand what is normal for you
and your body, she stated. More said, whatever you do, never try to get
rid of it by douching!
