I Need some help. I am a female and I am 20 years old. Ever since I had my first period when I was 12 i've had a white vaginal discharge. I am late on a pap smear but the last one i had everything was normal so i never brought up the discharge to the doctor. I've read many articles online that say vaginal discharge is normal but is it normal to have everyday? The discharge is thick and white. I notice it in my panties and when it dries it stains the panties. I also notice it when i urinate. (i can see the white stuff in the toilet usally 2 to 3 drops). The discharge has no odor so i dont believe its anything bad. but please someone tell me if i am okay. Crying or Very sad

Vaginal mucus changes throughout the month according to the hormonal cycle. It will be thick and clumpy, then thin out and become stringy and then thicken again. All of this is normal. Yes, you will have it in your panties and perhaps see it drip in the toilet. Without this mucus we would never get pregnant and intercourse would be agonizing. Just one of the wonders of being female!
