You are a growing girl and so your body is going to be going through some changes that are bound to freak you out at first. Before you start thinking that you’re some kind of alien, it is important to know that anything you experience in puberty is probably completely normal.

That "white stuff” in your underwear is completely natural. All women get it at some point in their lives. You said in your question that you haven’t had your first period yet. Well, this is a sign that it is on its way. The white stuff is called discharge and will probably be with you for the majority of your adult life.

All discharge is, is a biological liquid that is expelled from your vagina. It is usually a sign that your vagina is cleaning itself and shows that you are perfectly healthy down there! The amount of discharge that you secrete tends to vary on where you are in your menstrual cycle. If you find that you are producing quite a lot, then it probably means you are ovulating at that your period will be along in a week or two. Discharge is thickest at your most fertile stage in your menstrual cycle. A thin discharge shows you are not ovulating. You may also find that after exercising there is a lot in your underwear, again this is perfectly natural.

However, discharge can give you some signs that there is a problem. In order to check that you are healthy, try familiarising yourself with these signs. If your discharge is thick, white and odourless, this is called your Cyclical discharge which occurs at the beginning and end of your menstrual cycle. This is perfectly normal. If your discharge is clear and stretchy then this signifies ovulation. Now we come to the bad ones. If your discharge is thick and white with the texture of cottage cheese, then this is Candidiasis which could signify a yeast infection or inflamed cervix. Trichomoniasis makes discharge look copious, green and frothy. The sexually transmitted infection (STI) can make your discharge look creamy white or yellow, it will also be odorous. Another STI is Chlamydia which will make your discharge look purulent and malodorous. And finally, bacterial vaginosis will make your discharge thin, with a grey or green colour and a fishy odour.

However, if you have not started your periods yet then there is absolutely no need to worry about the bad discharge symptoms.

Hun, yes it does. That 'white stuff' is called discharge. It may take up to 6 months before you start. Do you have any other symptoms?

Guys calm down, I'm 14 and have been getting this for quite a while. I was embaressed to tell anyone so I researched it. Its all completly normal, chances are most of your friends are going through the same worries. At first I thought this may be a yeast infection but its not its discharge (this is your body cleaning itself out), and if youve already had your period and your still getting this discharge thats normal too, ive had my period for about a year now and still get the discharge everyday. There's nothing to worry about. Hope this helps.

Hi, I'm 12 and I started my period about 2 months ago. I have white discharge in my underwear...sometimes its liquid and sometimes its hard. My doctor told me its perfectly normal and to just wear some Panty liners so it doesn't mess up your underwear. Panty liners are just like pads but it doesn't absorb that much. I know it stinks but its just what us girls have to deal with!

Thanks and good luck

Well dear buddy!

You are in a growing age and this is the time when along with the periods, female usually have a white discharge. Do not worry it is totally normal and its a symptom of adulthood. The white stuff is released not every time like blood but it is released from time to time with irregularity. Still, you need to take care that it should not be a regular discharge. Still if you feel some kind of scary feelings then you can drink milk on daily basis.

discharge

Take care have fun!

It's your body's way of cleaning it's self out it's REALLY normal to have the white stuff along w/ your  period but if the white stuff is clumpy or smelly it could be a yeast infection and or if its clumpy you need to see a doctor immediately it could be a serious disease that vagina's can get.

Relax! Its just discharge and every girl gets it. If it changes to a yellow or green colour you could have a yeast infection and you should talk to a doctor or a trusted adult. But if it stays white or clear you are perfectly normal! =))

Its a way of cleaning out your body parts. Its natural. You will get it for about 2 years then you will start your period. If you are worried about it tell someone. You will start to get used to it. I'm 13 and I started geting it when I was 9. Its called mucus btw. But I still havnt had my period.
My bestie had mucus for 2 weeks then she got her period but you never know!!!
When the disscharge gets heavy wear a liner untill it thins out again.

I'm experiencing this too, I haven't told anyone so I'm hoping it's nothing serious. It is itchy sometimes, does this mean anything? It's whiteish cream coloured and sometimes dries quite crusty in my underwear. All I want to no is should I be worried, and should I tell someone? Thanks!

Just put a panty liner in your underwear to keep dry.

White substance that you are pointing out can be vaginal discharge. If this discharge is free from any odor and you are not having itching and burning then no need to worry because vagina secrete some fluids in order to drain dead vaginal cells. Quantity and thickness of these secretions depends upon stage of the cycle. During estrogen phase of the cycle, these secretions are less viscous and are more in quantities and during progesterone phase, these secretions become more viscous.

In your case, white stuff on you underwear is vaginal discharge that contains dead vaginal cells. This is normal and does not indicate any problem until it has odor.

You should trust your mother and learn not to be afraid to ask her about sexual matters, especially now when yu're just starting to go through puberty. If you can't get over the fear of talking to you mother, then you MUST learn to not be shy with your doctor.

If it doesn't smell fishy or unpleasant, if it doesn't accompany itching, if the consistency is smooth and not chunky, then it sounds like a very normal vaginal discharge that many women experience, myself included.

Of course if you are unsure or concerned, see your doctor.

Every girl/woman has a discharge it's how it is. Before a period women get a thicker discharge. It is only a problem if you have a smelly, itchy or coloured discharge meaning green or yellow. If you're worried see a doctor also if you're diabetic you can also get discharge.

I wouldn't worry I have had the same thing for about 1 year to 2 years and I have my period. If its not white and smells then it is possible it can be an std. Mine is on going and everyday. If you are having unprotected sex it could be your partners "Stuff". I have mine and still have the white discharge everyday . I don't know if theres a way to get ride of it so if anyone has the answer to that
Thanks...

I wouldn't worry I have the same problem everyday all day. I do have sex but I'm careful and I know whats going on and I'm safe. If you are having unprotected sex and your partner is realising into you it could be his stuff coming back out.  If its not white and smells it could be a std. I have had the same prob. Seance I was 13 so its been 3 years I have had the problem its just a white discharge its your body's way of cleaning its self out ..

That would be cervical discharge, it is very normal as long as it stays in the consistency and smell. The discharge white or transparent in color is a sign of ovulation, its letting you know that youu are in your fertile days. However if the discharge is yellow to green looking with a very bad odor to it then that could be a sign of an infection which in that case you would have to go get checked

I am going through the same thing. The white stuff is not always white though it will most likely be yellow at least once. If it starts getting heavy you should put on a pantiliner. No reason to freak out. It is just your body getting ready for puberty and maturing. The more you understand this the more relaxed you will be and regular it will be.

You could have a yeast infection. They have over the counter things to help but I recommend that you go to your doctor because it may be something else.

If it is cottage cheese looking it could be yeast so you may have a yeast infection. They have over the counter drugs, but if you have never had a yeast infection and are unsure you should go to the doctor.

No. White discharge can be a symptom of a number of things, from normal vaginal secretions to a yeast infection. The only way to be sure you are pregnant is a pregnancy test and subsequent ultrasound.

I think it is because when you finish using the bathroom you have to start cleaning under your self with water o Else it will affect you in an older age and it can do such things as: Make under you have pain all the time,make your stomach Hurt and you may not be able to get pregnant and if you do get pregnant your baby would not come out correct
