I have been having a gooey snot-like vaginal discharge constantly, every day for the past 6 months or so. It is clear or white and does not have an odor, nor is there any pain associated with it. Many people say it may be related to ovulation, but its every day! I have always had a noticeable increase of discharge during ovulation and it is very much like ovulation discharge.... but its every day! I'm not constantly ovulating,right? so what else could be going on? also I am not on any birth control, I have two kids, I am not currently sexually active, if any of that info helps...
Welcome to ehealthforum,
You can experience changes in your vaginal discharge throughout your menstrual cycle. The response varies as your body/vagina responds to these hormonal level changes. Few women experience increased discharge during their peak fertile/reproductive years. If you are worried, you can consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough examination and vaginal swab/smear test done on vaginal discharge to confirm/rule out infective causes. Get started on treatment as appropriate (based on examination and investigations results) to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation in the area. Keep area clean and dry.
