The other day, I was surprised to find something white on my panties. I got scared because it was something I had never seen before. Does that have something to do with how my body is growing?
That's a secretion from the vagina called vaginal discharge. Vaginal discharge is caused by feminine hormones and it's perfectly normal. It's a sign that your body is growing properly, so you don't have to worry.
What is vaginal discharge?
Vaginal discharge is a secretion from the vagina caused by the influence of female hormones. The amount varies depending on your hormonal balance. It may be clear, whitish or yellowish. Vaginal discharge protects the vagina's mucus membrane and keeps bacteria from entering the vagina.
What should I do when I experience vaginal discharge?
You may use special pads called pantyliners if you are concerned about soiling your panties. All you have to do is place a pantyliner in the crotch area of your panties. Try it and see.
I see, that's called vaginal discharge. I was worried because I didn't know what it was. I'm glad there is nothing wrong with me! I'll try using pantyliners next time.
